After huge interest that saw a Thursday afternoon Mystics game sell out, the Washington Capitals have announced details for their Game Five watch party at Capital One Arena.
The gist is this. Tickets to the Mystics game are now free and anyone who has already purchased a seat to the game directly from the team will be refunded. Tuesday morning, some Mystics tickets were going for hundreds or thousands of dollars on the secondary market. Caps fans interested in attending the viewing party must sign up for free tickets starting at 1 PM Wednesday.
According to the team, a ticket does not guarantee entry into the arena that day. In addition, Game Five will be broadcast outside the arena on the videoboards located at G Street and 8th Street NW beginning at 8 PM. Tickets are not required to be outside in the streets.
