Monumental introduces digital tickets

Washington sports fans now have the option of going green.

Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced today the introduction of a digital ticket system available to Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics and Georgetown Hoyas season-ticket holders.

The Season Ticket Digital Card program replaces traditional paper tickets with a preloaded card containing corresponding seat locations. The card serves as admission to all games within a customers full-season or partial-plan ticket package for Capitals games and full-season ticket package for Wizards, Mystics and Georgetown mens basketball games.

Season-ticket holders will receive one card per account that includes several account management benefits. With the introduction of the card, all Capitals, Wizards and Mystics account management functions previously associated with fees are now free. Season-ticket holders will now be able to print tickets at home and forward tickets without paying a single fee. Capitals and Wizards ticket holders also may use the system to list tickets for sale through Ticketmaster TicketExchange. If a customer opts to have a paper ticket for a particular game, the system allows the customer to print tickets from any computer.

We are always looking to bring the most up-to-date technological advances to our season-ticket holders as well as improve and enhance the game-day experience, said Jim Van Stone, Monumental Sports & Entertainment senior vice president of ticket sales and services.

This quick, secure and easy-to-use digital ticket system will give our guests the ultimate convenience and flexibility in using their seats, added Dave Touhey, Verizon Center senior vice president and general manager.

The card is valid for all seat locations on an account and is swiped using a hand-held computer by an attendant upon entrance to Verizon Center. Patrons then receive a seat locator tab for each valid ticket stored on the card, which is used as the ticket for the game once inside of the arena.

Georgetown athletics is pleased to work with Monumental Sports and Ticketmaster to provide digital ticketing solutions and enhanced technology to fans in an efficient, secure and easy manner, said Dan ONeil, Georgetown University associate athletics director for external affairs. We place a high priority on customer service and are excited to offer digital-ticketing solutions to our loyal Hoya fan base.

In an effort to make the transition to digital tickets as easy as possible, several resources are available to customers. Season-ticket holders will receive a brochure with a detailed explanation of the systems benefits, answers to frequently asked questions and step-by-step instructions on how to use online functionalities. In addition, more information and a series of video tutorials are currently available on the Capitals and Wizards websites.

Fans holding single-game tickets, group tickets and suite tickets will continue to receive paper tickets.

Wizards announce roster for training camp in Richmond

Wizards announce roster for training camp in Richmond

The Washington Wizards will bring 18 players to training camp next week in Richmond, the team announced Friday.

No surprises on the list, which includes guards John Wall and Bradley Beal. NBA rosters can include a maximum of 15 players. The Wizards have 12 players with guaranteed contracts.

Markieff Morris, Marcin Gortat, Otto Porter, Ian Mahinmi, Andrew Nicholson, Jason Smith and Kelly Oubre are the frontcourt locks. Trey Burke, Tomas Satorasnky and Marcus Thornton round out the backcourt.

Guard Jarell Eddie and rookie Danuel House are favorites for two of the remaining three spots. Center Daniel Ochefu and guard Sheldon McClellan were also part Washington's summer league entry.

How much Wall can play leading up to and at the start of the NBA season after two offseason knee injuries could play a factor in determining a 15th roster spot if the Wizards choose to fill it before the Oct. 27 regular season opener.

MORE WIZARDS: KELLY OUBRE WANTS TO BE NBA'S KANYE WEST

Wizards' Kelly Oubre talked to Kanye West about bringing Yeezys to the NBA

Wizards' Kelly Oubre talked to Kanye West about bringing Yeezys to the NBA

Wizards forward Kelly Oubre, Jr. is only 20 years old, but he has a strong sense of two things: basketball and fashion.

Between workout sessions and preparing for the start of Wizards training camp (Sept. 27, for your information), Oubre went up to Manhattan to attend New York Fashion Week.

The international event is one of four major fashion weeks in the world, the others being London, Paris and Milan. NYFW ran from Sept. 8 to 15 this year, giving Oubre the perfect window to check out the designer shows. 

Having attended two prior fashion weeks, the second-year Wizard knew how to navigate pretty well. This time he brough along a film crew from the National Basketball Players Association for a glimpse into that world. 

Oubre took the camera to check out some designer events and in between elaborated on his own fashion industry aspirations. His brand, Dope$oul, is something he eventually hopes to turn into a clothing line of his own one day. 

He said he learns by watching how professionals develop a design aesthetic, produce a runway show and manage a brand. 

Halfway through the video, Oubre told the story of meeting rapper/fashion designer Kanye West at his Verizon Center performance Sept. 9.

That's just the waaavee 🌊 #Shhh Papi|Pablo ⚜

He said the pair talked about Kanye's Yeezy football cleats and potentially working together to make a Yeezy basketball shoe. 

So while Oubre will shift his focus to the Wizards for the coming season, keep an eye on his creative side. Who knows, we could see him wearing Yeezys on the court one of these days.
