Press Release

Las Vegas – Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement after MGM Resorts International announced that it purchased the WNBA’s San Antonio Stars and will relocate the team to Las Vegas to play at the Mandalay Bay Events Center starting in 2018.

“There is no better home than Mandalay Bay for a team and league that will inspire, engage, and entertain our community. As Southern Nevada continues to heal in the aftermath of the 1 October tragedy, the WNBA’s commitment to Las Vegas underscores our town’s resilience and its unprecedented legacy of hospitality and entertainment. I look forward to watching world-class basketball teams tip-off at one of the world’s premier entertainment destinations.”
