CARSON, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Sparks will host the Seattle Storm in the WNBA's second outdoor game.

The Sparks said on Monday that the night game on June 5 will be played in the Home Depot Center's tennis stadium, which has a capacity of 8,000.

The New York Liberty and the Indiana Fever played the WNBA's first outdoor game in July 2008 at New York City's Arthur Ashe Stadium, site of the U.S. Open.

In case of rain, the game would be moved to July 7 and take place in Staples Center.

The game is part of the Sparks' campaign to promote health through outdoor exercise.
