Mercury To Award $5,000 To One Lucky Fan Each Time Brittney Griner Dunks in a 2018 Home Game

This could be big! The three-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury today announced another reason why Valley sports fans can’t afford not to be Mercury fans, rolling out the new BG Dunks Promotion.  The initiative is simple: every time Mercury star Brittney Griner dunks in a 2018 regular season home game at Talking Stick Resort Arena, one registered fan will win $5,000!  Fans must register at in order to be eligible.

Griner is the most prolific dunker in WNBA history— she has recorded 10 regular-season dunks through her first five WNBA seasons, which is 10 of the 13 regular-season dunks in the 21-year history of the WNBA.  BG also has the league’s only playoff dunk in history, and two All-Star Game dunks.  Griner’s most recent dunk in Phoenix came on July 12, 2017, in the Mercury’s 89-84 victory over the Atlanta Dream last season.

First chance to win is Friday, May 18, at Fry’s Food Stores Opening Night.  All terms and conditions can be found at

WNBA all-time leading scorer Diana Taurasi and 2017 WNBA scoring champion Brittney Griner return to Phoenix this summer to lead the Mercury in a quest for the franchise’s WNBA-record tying fourth championship.  Tickets for Fry’s Food Stores Opening Night on Friday, May 18 and the rest of the Mercury’s 2018 home games are available online at or by phone at 602-252-WNBA.
