Tickets for the Sue Bird retirement tour are scarce as the WNBA legend’s final regular-season game approaches.

The Seattle Storm’s final regular-season home game against the Las Vegas Aces on August 7 has been sold out for weeks, with the team announcing the sellout on July 21. Only resale tickets remain for Bird’s finale at Climate Pledge Arena.

Back-to-back matchups between the Storm and Mystics at Washington’s Entertainment and Sports Arena also sold out over the weekend, as D.C. fans clamored to see Bird one more time. Last Thursday’s meeting with the Connecticut Sun at Mohegan Sun Arena also sold out.

Tickets for the Storm’s few remaining games also have become hot commodities.

As of 10 a.m. ET Tuesday, a mere 40 tickets remain for the matchup between the Minnesota Lynx and the Seattle Storm at Target Center on August 12, the final regular-season meeting between Sue Bird and Sylvia Fowles. The contest also is Fowles’ last regular-season home game.

Before that, the two teams will meet in Seattle on August 3, and that game also has a limited number of tickets remaining.
