Suns To Host 2027 All-Star Weekend

MARCH 7: The Suns have been officially selected to host NBA All-Star 2027, according to a release from the league (Twitter link). The 76th All-Star Game will take place at the Footprint Center in Phoenix on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2027.

FEBRUARY 26: All-Star Weekend appears to be headed to Phoenix in 2027, multiple sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

It’s a huge achievement for new owner Mat Ishbia, who took control of the Suns a little more than a year ago. Ishbia’s Phoenix Mercury will host the WNBA All-Star Game this year.

With a roster featuring Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal, the team could be well represented in the 2027 game. Durant has been an All-Star 16 times in his career, while Booker is a four-time All-Star and Beal has been selected three times.

After taking place in Indianapolis this year, the next three All-Star Weekends will be hosted by Pacific Division teams, Charania notes (Twitter link). San Francisco will host next year’s festivities, followed by Los Angeles in 2026.

It will be the fourth All-Star Game in Phoenix and the first since 2009. The city also served as host in 1975 and 1995.
