Washington Wizards unveil courtside patio for VIPs

Monumental Sports & Entertainment (MSE) has unveiled a new courtside experience for VIPs who attend Washington Wizards games at Capital One Arena.

‘The District’, a 1,000 square-foot area located in the east end zone, includes a social-gathering space, a bar and an “enhanced culinary experience”, according to a press release. It will be available during the 2019-20 season.

The courtside patio is part of MSE’s ongoing $55m renovation of Capital One Arena, which includes a new centre-hung scoreboard, a SkyRing LED display which will wrap around the roofline of the arena bowl, as well as additional concessions updates.
