The 25th Anniversary of the WNBA is here, with four games on Opening Night May 14th to kickoff what should be one of the most exciting campaigns in league history.

The Indiana Fever take on Sabrina Ionescu and the New York Liberty in the first tilt at 7:00 p.m. to open the regular season. It will be the first game for the Liberty at their new home of Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and will start the second season of superstar-in-waiting Sabrina Ionescu. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft played just 2.5 games last season before hurting her ankle, but should be a force for years in the W.

Here are all four games on the schedule in Friday’s action, with their livestreaming home for this evening:

Indiana Fever vs. New York Liberty 7:00 p.m., ESPN3
Connecticut Sun vs. Atlanta Dream 7:30 p.m., Twitter
Phoenix Mercury vs. Minnesota Lynx 9:00 p.m., CBS Sports App
Dallas Wings vs. Los Angeles Sparks 10:30 p.m., Facebook via the WNBA page

All games are also available with a WNBA League Pass subscription, which is $9.99 for one team or $16.99 for the entire league. It also comes with a free seven-day trial, so you can watch all of tonight’s action for free. League Pass is available on all iOS, Android, Apple TV, and Chromecasts. It also has a livestream function for your PC, and all games all season long are available for replay and DVR’ing.
