Update 6:10pm: Mark Segraves of NBC 4 is reporting that while a sportsbook is coming to Capital One Arena, it may not be at The Greene Turtle location.
“You may have heard some chatter about Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Caps, saying he was going to put a sportsbook inside The Greene Turtle restaurant behind me on the first floor of Capital One Arena,” Segraves said. “I talked to a representative for Mr. Leonsis who says he never said anything of the sort today. He is committed to having the sportsbook inside Capital One Arena. He just hasn’t decided where it will be inside the building and what it will look like.”
Original story: Darren Rovell is reporting that the space at Capital One Arena occupied by The Greene Turtle Bar & Grill will be turned into a sportsbook. Wednesday morning at the Sports Betting Executive Summit panel held by the American Gaming Association, Capitals owner Ted Leonsis spoke about the coming change.
