Capital One Arena Events

While the NBA’s Washington Wizards have had their moments in Capital One Arena over the years, including two seasons when part-owner Michael Jordan took his Air Jordans out of the retirement locker in a desperate (yet ultimately unsuccessful) bid to boost the Wizards into the playoffs. The team that has really cast a spell over fans in the nation’s capital in recent years, however, has been the Wizards’ icy fellow tenants, the Washington Capitals of the NHL, who hoisted their first-ever Stanley Cup in 2018. As well as every single regular season and playoff Wizards and Capitals home game, the Capital One Arena plays host to the storied Georgetown Hoyas NCAA college basketball team, along with an impressive list of exciting concerts, conventions, performances, and other sporting competitions. Showing up to a game or event hungry is no problem at all, with everything from fried chicken to ramen to very tasty pizza. Kiosks and shops throughout Capital One Arena can also be found hawking team and event merchandise.
