The Phoenix Mercury and Arizona Public Service (APS) will host their annual “Green Night” on Wednesday, August 14 when the team takes on the Indiana Fever at US Airways Center. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
US Airways Center will be powered by renewable energy from APS. The Mercury purchased 42,000 kilowatt-hours of green energy, which is enough to power the entire game.
Throughout the game, the Mercury and APS will communicate “green tips” featuring the APS Refrigerator Recycling Program in-arena and the first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a free EcoSmart® shirt, courtesy of APS. The EcoSmart® shirts are made of five percent polyester created from recycled plastic bottles. An image of the t-shirt is below and attached.
In addition, the team will wear green shooting shirts during their pre-game warm-up in support of “Green Night.”
Limited tickets are still available for the Mercury matchup against the Indiana Fever on Wednesday, August 14 at US Airways Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. Fans can visit phoenixmercury.com to purchase tickets.
