Over the course of the offseason, Capital One Arena has undergone a $40 million renovation. In addition to a new on-ice projection system, updated concessions, and an improoved sound system, one of the biggest pieces of news stemming from the renovation from the announcement was that all the seats in the arena would be replaced.
Bye-bye, purple chairs of Ye Olde MCI Center days, hello sleek black seats (with hopefully better cupholders).
Back in late June, it was revealed that cushions from said purple seats were now for sale for collectors.
But now, collectors wanting more than just the cushion can purchase full seats in pairs.

The seats can be purchased from Archer Seating for $395, and can one be obtained via in-person pickup.
More from Archer’s website:
DON’T MISS THIS RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PIECE OF D.C. SPORTS HISTORY
Here is your chance to have your very own piece of the arena which we have called home and has seen the past 20 years of action, including the recently crowned Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics, Georgetown University Men’s Basketball and all of the unforgettable concerts and events.
The new seats are installed and that means your memorabilia is available for purchase. The original seats have already been removed and placed into storage, it is not possiblefor us to locate specific seats.
The double seat is $395 and can be purchased above. Please note, there will be no shipping option as seats must be picked up at 1050 Brentwood North East Washington D.C. on October 13th and 14th. Exact date will be assigned based on order of purchase.
“The seats will be from the lower seating bowl and will have normal signs of use but will function mechanically and not have any major damage to the fabric other than normal wear. The seats, and the legs especially, will need to be properly wiped down and cleaned by the customer when they get them home.
**Please note – These seats Are Pickup Only** Seats will be handed out by the order in which the fans arrive on the pickup date, no sorting thru the seats will be possible or allowed due to the nature of the operation and time constraints.
Floor stands are heavy duty powder coated black steel and will allow seats to be used in a normal manner without any additional devices needed. Floor stands are meant to be attached at home to make transport easier and minimize scratching to the finish. All that is need to attach is a 9/16” wrench and about 3 minutes.”
So if you’ve ever wanted to REALLY re-create an in-person game experience from the comfort of your home while re-watching the Caps’ epic Stanley Cup run, and have $400 to burn, now’s your chance (rude leaning fans in front of you not included).
