After being continually booted from their home arena due to scheduling conflicts, the Phoenix Mercury will finally host a playoff game at the Footprint Center.

The Mercury will play Game 4 of the WNBA semifinals at their Phoenix-based home on Wednesday, thanks to some flexibility from the NBA. The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers agreed to move their 10 p.m. ET preseason game to earlier in the day to allow for the Mercury to keep their 10 p.m. ET scheduled start against the Las Vegas Aces.

While the contests are now being billed as a double-header, tickets to each event will be sold separately.

Suns guard Chris Paul has also stepped up and purchased 500 tickets for the Mercury’s Game 3 contest on Sunday at Desert Financial Arena, available first-come, first-serve to fans.
