NEW YORK (AP) – Seattle will host the WNBA All-Star Game next year.

The league announced Wednesday that the game will take place July 22 in the city for the first time.

The league didn’t have an All-Star Game last season because of the Olympics. The midseason showcase has been held out west only twice, both times in Phoenix, most recently in 2014.

The 2015 All-Star Game was held in Connecticut. The West beat the East 117-112 as Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx scored a game-record 30 points.

The WNBA will begin its 21st season on May 13 with three games.
