INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Fever would not return to Indianapolis with a WNBA title on Thursday but the team hoped to still see a big show of support.
Team officials and the Indianapolis International Airport arranged a rally to welcome the team home a day after losing the championship in Minnesota.
Fans have been invited to gather in the Civic Plaza at the center of the airport by 11:45 a.m. Thursday.
A stage decorated with a balloon arch will host players as they face fans to celebrate the season.
Complimentary snacks and Starbucks would be provided, according to the team’s public invite.
The Fever are returning from their 11th consecutive playoff appearance.
