Minnesota Lynx to play preseason game in Canada

The WNBA will head north for a preseason game in Canada.

The Chicago Sky will face the Minnesota Lynx on May 13 in Toronto.

It will be the first WNBA game to be played in the country and the third WNBA preseason game to be played outside of the United States.

In 2004, the Detroit Shock and San Antonio Silver Stars met in Monterrey, Mexico, and in 2011 the Atlanta Dream played the Standard Life Great Britain Women’s basketball team in Manchester, England.
