Capital One Arena Ranked No. 4 In NHL, Study Says



Capital One Arena, the home of the Washington Capitals since 1997, is the fourth-best arena for fans in the NHL according to a study published Wednesday by CanadaSportsBetting.

The arena, located in Washington D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood, received a total score of 33.12, calculated by an equation that weighed average beer prices, parking availability and walking distance to public transportation and area restaurants.

According to the study, Capital One Arena offers the second-lowest average beer price in the league at 54 cents per ounce. That, along with the Gallery Place metro stop residing across the street, were major factors in the No. 4 ranking.

Colorado‘s Ball Arena took the No. 1 spot, while Detroit‘s Little Caesars Arena and Columbus’ Nationwide Arena rounded out the top three.

With a distant 6.18 overall score, UBS Arena, home of the New York Islanders, landed in last place.

Mullet Arena, the Arizona State University-based facility that is being used by the Arizona Coyotes temporarily, checked in at No. 30 with a score of 17.5.
