SALT LAKE CITY (October 10, 2022) — The Salt Lake City Stars, the official NBA G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz, today released their 50-game 2022-23 schedule and announced that the Maverik Center in West Valley City will be their new home arena. The franchise’s seventh season in Utah tips off with a five-game road trip beginning on Nov. 6 ahead of its home debut at the Maverik Center on Nov. 21. “The Stars look forward to starting this new era in our new home at the Maverik Center and to enhancing the game-night experience for both our fans and players,” said Stars President Jonathan Rinehart. “Based in West Valley City, the Stars will maintain our proximity to the Jazz and continue to serve an important development role for the franchise, while also growing our commitment to that community.” The Maverik Center, owned by West Valley City and operated by Centennial Management Group, Inc., combines the modern amenities of a large arena with the service and intimacy of a small theater. It opened in September of 1997 and later gained international acclaim as the host of the ice hockey competition at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. The Maverik Center is also the longtime home to the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies hockey club. “We are thrilled to become the new home for the Stars and provide the community with another top-tier professional sports experience as we continue to optimize the Maverik Center and create innovative fan experiences,” said Kevin Bruder, Centennial Management Group CEO.
Stars games are family friendly and affordable fun, and they offer the chance to watch current and future Jazz players compete on the court. Game night also includes access to the University of Utah Health Kids Zone, featuring bounce houses, balloon artists and face painters as well as postgame player autographs. Ticket prices start at $14. For more information on tickets, call/text (801) 325-STAR.

The two- part schedule returns with teams playing 16 games to determine qualification and seeding for the annual Showcase Cup tournament from Nov. 4-Dec. 17.
