Went to see a Caps game on 22/12 - as tourists to the USA this was our first ever ice hockey game - the centre is superb, easy access and egress, excellent seats. We are now Caps (and Ovechkin)fans! As a tourist, seeing a sporting event allows for a very different experience of a country.

My husband and I came here for a Sabres/Capitals game, I had to pay about $50/seat in the 300's section but our view was GREAT; the seats are situated at a pretty steep angle so there are no visual obstructions. The venue has alot of different refreshment stands and is situated in an area with a variety of restaurants so... More

As a Georgetown student, I have been up close and personal for the men's home basketball games. For the Caps and Wizards, I take to sitting a bit higher up. Both provide really exceptional seating. From my experience, this arena is really sharp and clean. I mean, if you're going to watch a sporting event, the most important thing is... More

I've been to this arena numerous times since moving to VA. Purchased partial season tickets to see the Wiz play for the past 3 years. Also attended a Semi-Final NCAA event (Marquette/Miami, Syracuse/Indiana) which was energetic due to all the school spirit. Great location, modern look, clean, good food, pretty good entertainment during intermissions/timeouts, comfortable seating, and great vantage point... More

Luxury Boxes / Suites. I saw a Wizard's game in a Verizon Center Suite for my first time. Experience was great. The suite has an "A" row, a "B" row and a "stool" row, each has 6 seats, so (18 seats total) and they are assigned seats in the suite. A is closest to the floor, B is directly behind... More

We saw the Capitals play the San Jose Sharks here. Excellent seats from everywhere in the stadium, good hot-dogs and reasonably priced beer (expensive, but not overly so). Exactly what you would expect from a modern sports stadium. Excellent location, and there are plenty of bars & restuarants nearby for those who want to go early and soak up the... More

Great arena to watch sports in. Watched Basket ball one night then 2 days later watched ice hockey in. Great Selection of snack food and beer. Definitely get the bottomless bucket of popcorn. All the seating in the arena had a good view of the court/ ring, however sitting in the middle would be best. Convenient location right above the... More

Saw Wizards host Boston Celtics. John Wall went off and Wizards won! Like other NBA arenas, games and experiences -- lots to see and do. Easy to get to, security not too bad, and lots of food options. Prices pretty good for major sport in D.C.

Verizon Center is a great place to see a game. It is easy to get to the Verizon Center and the arena is very nice. We had great seats and although our team lost it was a lot of fun to see a game in different arenas.
