A little bit of normalcy is returning to Capital One Arena as some family members are attending Tuesday’s Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers game. At 10% capacity, fans will be able to attend games starting April 27.

Captain Alex Ovechkin’s wife Nastya and son Sergei watched pregame warmups this evening. It also appears the Kuznetsov family is in attendance.

On Monday, Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced additional information after D.C. approved the waiver MSE requested for fans to attend games at 10% capacity, which is 2,100 fans. The Washington Wizards’ April 21st home against the Golden State Warriors and the Capitals’ April 27th home game against the New York Islanders will be the first games played in front of fans in over a year.

Both teams will honor DMV first responders and frontline and essential workers of the COVID-19 response during their first games back with fans. Due to the very limited tickets to be made available, priority for ticketing will be given to season ticket members and partners, with information forthcoming on ticket availability for the general public.   

D.C. approved the waiver on April 9, four days after they announced the waiver request was still pending with no definitive timeline for a decision to be made.
