The Comets' home opener is "First Fan Night" and includes an unveiling of the team's four WNBA championship banners, and the retired jerseys of two-time WNBA Most Valuable Player Cynthia Cooper and the late Kim Perrot, whose jersey is the first-ever retired by the league.
WNBA president Donna Orender is scheduled to attend the game and, during a halftime presentation, honor the first fans to enter the arena that night. Other Comets theme nights include the June 3 "Sea of Red -- Health and Fitness Night," which is the first of a three-game series against the San Antonio Silver Stars. June 14 is "Dads and Daughters Night" and features the return of former Comet and WNBA All-Star Sheryl Swoopes and the Seattle Storm. Both games have a 7:30pm tipoff.
In December 2007, the Houston Comets announced the team would play at Reliant beginning with the 2008 WNBA season.
