Verizon Center is home to the NBA’s Washington Wizards, the WNBA’s Washington Mystics, the NHL’s Washington Capitals, and the Georgetown Hoyas Men’s Basketball team.

Located in the heart of Chinatown off of the Gallery-Place Chinatown Metro stop, Verizon Center is only a few steps away from the White House and hosts more than 220 events and concerts each year.

Since debuting in December of 1997, the state-of-the-art $200 million sports and entertainment facility has entertained over 21 million patrons with over 1,735 world class sporting events, concerts and family shows. The 2006 Washington Regional Round of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, the 2005 ACC Tournament, the 2003 World Figure Skating Championships, the first and second rounds of the 2002 and 1998 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament and the 1998 NHL Stanley Cup Finals are only a sample of the world class events held here at the venue.

The name of the arena was previously MCI Center, but when MCI was acquired by Verizon, the name was changed to “Verizon Center” effective March 5, 2006.
