WASHINGTON – The Capitals will host a watch party once again for Game 5 at Capital One Arena, but this time you’ll need tickets. The game is set for this Thursday night at 8 p.m.
Tickets will be free, but they don’t necessarily guarantee entry into the arena, Monumental Sports and Entertainment said in a news release.
The Caps are one win away from bringing home their first Stanley Cup title in franchise history, so demand for tickets–and possibly being part of a historic night in Washington–is extremely high.
Tickets will be available starting at 1 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, June 6. They’re limited to two per person. Fans will enter the arena via the F Street and Gallery Place entrances. Seating is general admission and due to overwhelming demand, fans are encouraged to arrive early.

However, there is another way to get your hands on one of the hottest tickets in D.C. sports history—and it involves one of the District’s other sports team.
The Washington Mystics—D.C.’s professional women’s basketball team—moved back their game Thursday to allow for the Caps watch party at night.
The game starts at 4 p.m. Anyone who has tickets to that game can stick around inside Capital One Arena and attend the Caps watch party. Doors open at 3 p.m. and tickets are free. Anyone who purchased tickets to the game will be automatically refunded.
The first 15,000 fans inside the arena will get a Caps rally towel. The concession stands will be open for the game and watch party. And more importantly, the Team Store will be open for fans wanting to get their hands on some Stanley Cup Final gear.
Capital One cardholders get a few extra perks (since it’s Capital One Arena, and all). The Capital One VIP Cardholder Entrance will open at 2:45 p.m. for cardholders. The entrance is at 6th Street Northwest. They also get 10 percent off all food and beverage purchases and 20 percent off items in the team store….[story continues on wusa9.com link below]
