Connecticut Sun

In January 2003, the Mohegan Tribe became the first Native American tribe to own a professional sports team with its purchase of the Orlando Miracle, a Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) franchise founded in 1988. Renamed the Connecticut Sun, the team was relocated to Uncasville, Connecticut, where they  are managed by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) and play home games inside the Mohegan Sun Arena. Each year after an April training camp, they play a 34 game season (17 at home and 17 away) that lasts from May to August.

The team name comes from its affiliation with Mohegan Sun and the logo-- a fiery orange sunburst, a WNBA basketball and a blue ribbon with four white semicircular domes-- is a modern interpretation of an ancient Mohegan symbol.
