    • 100 Level Baseline (Basketball)


      Baseline sections are usually the cheapest way to see a game from the lower level. Not surprisingly, these seats are also known for having the worst views and being farther from the court than expected. The biggest complaint with these sections is their location behind the baskets. The hoop can make it difficult to see if baskets are made or missed and can make it difficult to see the other end entirely. For minimal obstructions, choose a higher row in one of the sections closer to the corner. The elevation will help you see both end and the angle from the corner helps to see the near basket better. Another complaint among fans in these seats is their distance from the court. Despite being behind the basket, many fans sit here hoping to be close to the floor. In reality, row A is the first row in each section and more than ten rows from the court. Box seats and floor seats occupy the dozen or so rows closest to the court. Each of these sections is split up into a lower and upper portion. Rows A-T are in the lower part and U-Z are up a small set of stairs. In row T you'll be just a few steps away from the concourse and in row U you'll have no one sitting in front of you.  

    • Lower Preferred (Hockey)


      When sitting behind the net, viewers get a great angle to watch the plays develop as the players skate down the ice. This also gives fans a view similar to what the goalie sees before he comes up with a big save or a goal is scored. Fans sitting behind the net should consider the Shoot Twice side of Capital One Arena. Sections 104-107 are on the side where the Capitals will shoot twice so home fans who want to have the best chance to be close to where their team scores should look to sit on this side of the arena. For the best overall views of breakouts and power play setups, choose a higher row where you'll be able to see over the glass and partitions and also to the other side. 

    • VIP Glass Seats


      VIP Seats for Capitals games are located in the first three rows (A-C) of the lower level. These seats put fans mere feet from the glass and the ice and come with all-inclusive club access. Row A tickets are true Glass Seats. Ticketholders will have access to the Upscale MGM National Harbor VIP Lounge. Only Row A ticketholders have access to this very exclusive club. Beer, wine, cocktails and several food options are included. Rows B-C are also in on the VIP action. Besides being close to the ice, ticketholders in these rows will have access to the Etihad Airways Lounge. In this lounge, fans will have an all-inclusive menu inspired by celebrity chefs along with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks.
