Between June 1st and 13th, the regular season of WNBA will be interrupted for the dispute of Commissioner's Cup, a kind of cup between the 12 franchises in the league.

But what is the Commissioner's Cup?

The Commissioner's Cup is a competition that has been taking place since 2021. The idea is to recover rivalries between Eastern and Western Conferences of the WNBA, something that happened until the 2015 playoffs. Since then, the women's basketball league in the United States has adopted a general classification format, largely due to the low number of teams.

In its fourth edition, the cup has a system that takes advantage of games already scheduled in the WNBA to include the tournament. Thus, there will be 30 games between the days already mentioned, with each team playing five games, one against each of their conference rivals. As a result, the franchises that come first in their respective conferences will compete for $500,000 on June 25th.
