Atlanta Dream Tickets & Information
The Atlanta Dream is a professional basketball team based in Atlanta, Georgia, playing in the Eastern Conference in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA). The team was founded before the 2008 WNBA season began. The team is owned by Dream Too LLC, which is composed of two Atlanta businesswomen: Mary Brock, and Kelly Loeffler. Like some other WNBA teams, the Dream is not affiliated with an NBA counterpart.
Sports are a significant part of our culture. Our children play sports at an earlier age, adults try to stay fit longer, business is conducted courtside, and we root for the home team. Yet the WNBA Atlanta Dream is still trying to gain our attention. Ashley Preisinger, a business and community leader just named Atlanta Dream CEO last October, is eager to change that. This summer, she wants you to come to Phillips Arena to cheer on the best female professional basketball talent in the world and join the loyal Dream fans already in the know.
As CEO, Preisinger oversees all aspects of the team such as sales, finance and basketball operations. New to the sports world, Preisinger is extremely upbeat about her transition. “There are similar elements – working on promotions, staying on top of finances, reporting to owners – but when you overlay that with a sports team, it’s a lot more fun,” she said.
The Dream has qualified for the WNBA Playoffs in three of its four years in Atlanta and has reached the WNBA Finals twice. The franchise has been home to many high-quality players such as University of Louisville standout Angel McCoughtry, former Finals MVP Betty Lennox, and Brazilian sharpshooter Izi Castro Marques. In 2010, the Dream went to the WNBA Finals but fell short to Seattle. They lost to the Minnesota Lynx in the 2011 WNBA Finals.
