New Look at Home for New Capitals Season

Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced on Wednesday details to upgrade fans experience at Capital One Arena. Monumental previously announced plans for making Capital One Arena a better place for the fan experience. He announced in February 2018 that over the summer he would be investing $40 million in improvements to the arena to “…ensure that the fan experience at Capital One Arena remains second to none.”

Here are details from Monumental:

In addition to the new seats and new state-of-the-art sound system being installed as part of the Arena renovation, fans can expect to see these exciting changes:

• A new DJ stage for both Capitals and Wizards games

• A permanent 3D on ice/on court projection system that will create immersive video experiences, making fans feel as though they are in the middle of the pre-game action

• New entertainment squads for both the Capitals and Wizards:

◦ All-new, co-ed Wizards Dancers and Caps spirit teams, who will energize the crowd

◦ Wizdom, a new Wizards seniors dance team

◦ Wizards Power Pack, an entertainment crew that will feature stunts, tumbling and more

◦ And the fan favorite Wizkids dancers and Secret Service Dunkers will return, as well

• Digital signage experience throughout the fully-renovated concourses that will pull fans into an exclusively all-Wizards or all-Capitals team experience each night highlighting player and team imagery on each concourse

• Sponsored quadrants in the Arena where fans will experience concourse takeovers and can expect special offers and giveaways from sponsors

• Olympia ice resurfacer bus: groups of fans will be able to take pre-game and intermission rides

• Award-winning, chef-inspired dining experience featuring options from premiere chefs David Chang, Cat Cora and Alex McCoy

• A transformed and modernized PwC Club offering some of the best sightlines in the Arena and new 100-level lounge, both featuring top-of-the-line comfort seating and exclusive food and beverage options so fans can gather in style during the games

• A new in-bowl broadcasting platform for NBC Sports Washington

In June they even sold off old seats for fans to add to their growing Stanley Cup memorabilia.

We are excited to see these changes implemented. After visiting many other arenas, it became clear that the Capitals home was in need of a facelift!
