Washington Capitals Seat Numbers

Seat number 1 is always closest to the lower section number. For example seat number 1 in section 113 is on the aisle next to seat 20 in section 112.

Team Bench Locations for Washington Capitals Games

The Capitals bench is located between sections 100 and 121, while the visitors bench is located between sections 100 and 101. This means the Capitals will be shooting TWICE on the net in front of section 105 & 106 and they will be shooting ONCE on the net in front of sections 116 & 117.

Penalty Boxes for Capitals Games

The penalty boxes are located in front of section 111. This means the last seat of row 1 section 112 and the first seat of row 1 section 110 are directly next to the penalty boxes, making these great tickets for anyone looking to spend an extra dollar to get up close to all of the action. It is important to note that you should try and avoid sitting in the seats that are located directly behind the penalty boxes in section 111. Both the glass and the players and staff inside the penalty boxes will certainly obstruct your view for the duration of the game.

Best Seats for Washington Capitals Games

The best seats available are located in sections 100, 101, 110-112, and 121. It’s important to note that while the first row against the glass provides a great view of the game, the rows 2 through 7 behind it have limited viewing. Not only does the glass obstruct your view of the ice, it also distorts it. When purchasing tickets in these sections the higher the row, the better the view. If you are on a budget then the lower rows of section 416-418 as well as 400,401, and 433 are going to be cheapest Capitals Tickets with the best view.

Premium Seating for Capitals Games

Located just above the 100 level, club seats are in sections 200-229. Club seats include access to gourmet food and beverages, and full service bars. The Acela Club, located between sections 200 and 205 offers fine dining and drinks before and after every game. Seats can be reserved ahead of time for a fee of $15.

Food and Beverage Options for Washington Capitals Games

Hofman’s Quality Meats located on the 100 level concourse offers some local classics such as Crab Cakes, and Fish Po Boy’s. The fan favorite Chick-Fil-A has multiple locations throughout the venue, but be sure to get there at the right time or you will find yourself waiting in a very long line.
