The WNBA announced Thursday that Las Vegas will play host to the league’s All-Star Game and related activities in July.

It marks the third time that Las Vegas will host the event, after 2019 and 2021. For the second time, the game will be played at Michelob Ultra Arena, the home of the defending WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces.

The All-Star Game will be played July 15, with the 3-point Contest and Skills Challenge taking place the day prior.

The league will also bring back its “WNBA Live” fan festival for a second season. It debuted at last summer’s All-Star weekend in Chicago.

The WNBA season tips off May 19 and has been expanded to 40 games per team.
