Kettler Capitals Iceplex, the official training center of the National Hockey League’s Washington Capitals, signed a two-year partnership with RCN to provide cable services for the team's new headquarters in Arlington, Va.
RCN is one of the first official sponsors of the recently opened $43.7 million Iceplex.
Home of the Capitals' front offices, team practice rink and training facilities, Kettler Capitals Iceplex is an indoor ice-skating complex that features two NHL regulation-sized rinks with seating for 1,200 and building occupancy of 2,100. Combined, the two rinks offer the public 12,000 hours of ice time annually.
In addition to the Capitals, other user groups include Washington Jr. Capitals, Washington Jr. Nationals, Washington Little Capitals and Georgetown University, as well as local adult, college, high-school and youth-hockey teams.
As part of the deal, RCN will become the exclusive official cable provider to the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, which includes a range of on-site branding opportunities including Web site, TVs, dasherboards, ice-resurfacing machine and in-ice recognition.
RCN will provide cable video services for the Kettler Capitals Iceplex. This contract is the first since RCN created a new business unit to focus solely on serving small to midsized businesses.
