Capital One Arena - Washington, DC

A premier sports and entertainment facility located in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C., Capital One Arena is the home of the NBA’s Washington Wizards, the AFL’s Washington Valor, the NFL’s Washington Capitals, the WNBA’s Washington Mystics, and the NCAA’s Georgetown Hoyas men’s basketball team. Since opening in 1997, the arena has welcomed more than 47 million visitors and has hosted nearly 4,000 events. It’s one the top venues in the world, according to Pollstar, Billboard and Venues Today.

Events that have been held at Capital One Arena include world-class sporting events, trade shows, family shows and concerts from headliners including Madonna, The Who, Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Fleetwood Mac and Beyoncé. Doors typically open an hour before events. Only small, still camera equipment with a three-inch lens or smaller may be brought in. Although outside food and beverages are not allowed, there are many concessions scattered throughout the arena for hungry fans.

Situated just a few blocks north of the National Mall, Capital One Arena is surrounded by many of D.C.’s most popular attractions. There are thousands of parking spaces within several blocks of the arena, and the Metro is conveniently located directly underneath the venue, making commuting a breeze. Dozens of restaurants, bars and hotels are nearby, as well as attractions including the International Spy Museum, the Newseum and the Smithsonian museums.
