Thank you to our family, friends, employees, associates, and neighbors for your ongoing support as we continue to grow and develop the most important, influential, socially responsible sports and entertainment enterprise on the planet. We are one of the fastest growing companies in our region and now employ close to 3,000 full and part time people. We are now one of the most valuable enterprises in the region based on revenues and growth.
A super city like Greater Washington deserves an enterprise that is dedicated to quality and being an authentic steward to the community that it serves. A super city like Greater Washington deserves a partnership that is concerned with doing well by doing good.
Our commitment to the DMV is to focus on our community and put fans first in all that we do.
We have built a large portfolio of teams, brands, venues, and enterprises over the last few years and I want to give you all an update on who we are by our holdings, in an easy to navigate way:
Perhaps most importantly—we are very active in our philanthropy – through our Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation. We have significant partnerships to support DC’s Ward 8 with DC Cap and Martha’s Table.
In the NHL, we own and operate the Washington Capitals.
We also have a deep relationship and make serious financial and personnel commitments to the Hershey Bears, in my opinion, the best AHL franchise in the league. This is an important partnership for us.
In the NBA, which is in the midst of becoming the best global sports platform and building the most value, we own and operate the Washington Wizards.
We also are deeply committed owners of a WNBA franchise, the Washington Mystics. And we are now proud owners and operators of a G League franchise, the Capital City Go-Go.
We are proud owners and operators of one of the inaugural NBA 2k League franchises, Wizards District Gaming. We are also major investors in an endemic esports organization, Team Liquid, who participate as one of 10 franchised teams in the North American League of Legends Championship Series.
Georgetown Men’s Basketball
And let us celebrate the Georgetown Men’s Basketball Team, who call Capital One Arena home. Hoya Saxa Patrick Ewing!
Starting with Capital One Arena, which just celebrated 20 years of providing service to our community, We also own the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, the best training facility still in the NHL. Kettler Capitals Iceplex has been a key place for fans and players and management to work and enjoy for a decade now.
We also provide management to the EagleBank Arena at George Mason University.
And soon will be tenants and partners at the St. Elizabeth campus with Events DC and our great city. St. E’s Arena is where the Washington Mystics and Capital City Go-Go will play home games and the Washington Wizards will practice.
Media & Sports Tech
We own and operate the first regional DTC and OTT network, Monumental Sports Network. We also are very focused as partners or investors in major sports tech and related enterprises, including: Kiswe, Draftkings, Sportradar, and Winview.
We are very committed to continuing to innovate; to grow and to prosper, for the benefit of our community and for all of you; thank you!
