Capital One Arena to Host Fans at 10% Capacity; Nats Park and Audi Field up to 25%

Effective immediately, Washington D.C. has approved increased capacity limits for Capital One Arena, Nationals Park, and Audi Field.

The Monumental Sports & Entertainment’s waiver was approved Friday granting D.C. sports venues the opportunity to welcome fans at a reduced capacity.

Capital One Arena — home of the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals — will open at 10 percent capacity, hosting around 2,100 fans. Nationals Park will be allowed to operate at 25 percent capacity — around 10,000 fans — an increase from the 5,000 fans that were allowed to attend opening day.

Similarly, Audi Field — home of DC United —will be able to host fans at 25 percent capacity which is about 5,000 fans.

All venues will adhere to CDC guidelines and precautions including, social distancing, sanitization, and the use of facial coverings.

Other health provisions include limiting alcohol sales during games. Attendees will have a two-drink limit for all alcohol purchases.

The Capitals’ next home game is Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. It would be the Caps’ first home game with fans since March 4, 2020.
