Game Themes


Our game themes give us a chance to turn up the entertainment value and experience in the arena! Step battles, drum lines, retro gear, costumes, and more! Find the theme games you’ll have the most fun with and bring your crew!

Some of our most popular theme nights include:


Sneaker culture and Atlanta culture are synonymous with each other. This event is all about the kicks! From the sneakers our players arrive in, to the kicks of our fans and celebrity game attendees, we’ll highlight all the style of the ATL. We’ll also feature the best of ATL sneaker design, and give all sneakerheads a dazzling display showcasing why no city does sneakers like Atlanta.


One of our most popular theme nights is back! We will feature the best of the ATL-based entertainment options in the Pride community and deck out the arena in a vivid Pride-themed montage! The night will include giveaways, video board graphics and decor. Select Pride merch items will also be a big component for this night, as we know this is a driver for Pride-themed sports events in Atlanta.


This one is for all the 90s Kids (or anyone that likes having fun)! We will reach back in time to the 90’s and celebrate “Old” Atlanta and this special period around the city. We’ll have 90s performers that will get Gateway Arena rocking, and merch items, for sale! We’ll also have giveaways, special concourse activations, and more!


We want you to star in your own comic book, just as our players play the role of female superheroes in Atlanta! The evening will feature incredible graphics, special giveaways, and a lot more. But the star of the night will be the costumes and characters created by you who write the story for the night.


This game promises to be the best eating experience of the 2023 Atlanta Dream season! We are going to highlight the best of Southside’s local restaurants and host a pregame “Taste of the Southside.” Pizza. Wings. Burgers. Southern Comfort. And more! This will include a pregame food truck area in the lot with beer vendors providing fans a fun experience. No matter what you’re craving, you’ll find your taste at this game!


Possibly our highest-energy theme night of 2022 is back! Step shows, musical performances, and strolls will all keep you on your feet! Our Divine Nine night will highlight the nine historically African American Greek organizations and feature members of each sorority & fraternity through the Pan-Hellenic Council to help our game day entertainment. And we will be offering an exclusive Atlanta Dream D9 merch item at this game!

$5 from every single-game ticket sold will benefit scholarship funding for Atlanta students through our partnership with the National Pan-Hellenic of Greater Atlanta.


Our HBCU night will be a night of celebrating the HBCU community. We’ll feature the spirit of HBCU halftime entertainment, from drumline to dance teams! And we’ll tap into both school pride and rivalries with in-game activations that will give fans a chance to voice that school spirit! Game attendees will have access to the rollout of an exclusive HBCU-themed merchandise rollout and we’ll also have in-game giveaways!
