WNBA Commissioner's Cup: Full standings, results, race for $500,000 prize pool

·2-min read

The inaugural WNBA Commissioner's Cup is underway.

A portion of the games in the first half of the season will be labeled Commissioner's Cup games and count toward Cup standings.

What games count toward the Commissioner's Cup?

Each team has 10 intra-conference games. They are the first home game and first road game each team plays against its five conference opponents. 

The team with the best winning percentage of those 10 games in the Eastern Conference will play the winner of the Western Conference in a championship game on Aug. 12 at Phoenix Suns Arena and will be broadcast on Amazon Prime Video.

What is the prize pool for the Commissioner's Cup?

The prize pool will be $500,000 and the winning team will take home a custom designed cup that is passed from champion to champion every season. 

Players on the winning team would make, at minimum, $30,000. Members of the runner-up team can earn $10,000 per player, and the game's MVP will receive an additional $5,000.

Here are all the details on how the Commissioner's Cup works.
