Phoenix Suns Rumored to Host the 2027 NBA All-Star Weekend

The NBA is finalizing plans for the Phoenix Suns to host All-Star Weekend in 2027, according to online publication The Athletic. Phoenix is set to host WNBA All-Star Weekend in 2024, and now, new owner Mat Ishbia of the Suns and Mercury will host an All-Star Weekend in both leagues within the next four years.

Once confirmed, the All-Star game will be held in Phoenix for the fourth time in its history. Prior to this, Phoenix was the host city in 1975, 1999, and 2009.

In recent years, the All-Star weekend has grown to become a nearly week-long affair. The activities featured during this event include the dunk contest, 3-point contest, skills competition, a celebrity All-Star game, and concerts. This year, the NBA introduced a 3-point competition between Stephen Curry and Sabrina Ionescu of the WNBA, which received a great deal of support from fans. It is rumored that this type of integration may continue to expand in the future, potentially including other competitions in a 3-point format or otherwise.

No official announcement has been made yet, and there are no additional details available at this time.

The 2025 All-Star event will be hosted in San Francisco at Chase Center, the home of the Golden State Warriors. The Los Angeles Clippers’ is scheduled to welcome the event in 2026.
