Monumental introduces digital tickets

Washington sports fans now have the option of going green.

Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced today the introduction of a digital ticket system available to Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics and Georgetown Hoyas season-ticket holders.

The Season Ticket Digital Card program replaces traditional paper tickets with a preloaded card containing corresponding seat locations. The card serves as admission to all games within a customers full-season or partial-plan ticket package for Capitals games and full-season ticket package for Wizards, Mystics and Georgetown mens basketball games.

Season-ticket holders will receive one card per account that includes several account management benefits. With the introduction of the card, all Capitals, Wizards and Mystics account management functions previously associated with fees are now free. Season-ticket holders will now be able to print tickets at home and forward tickets without paying a single fee. Capitals and Wizards ticket holders also may use the system to list tickets for sale through Ticketmaster TicketExchange. If a customer opts to have a paper ticket for a particular game, the system allows the customer to print tickets from any computer.

We are always looking to bring the most up-to-date technological advances to our season-ticket holders as well as improve and enhance the game-day experience, said Jim Van Stone, Monumental Sports & Entertainment senior vice president of ticket sales and services.

This quick, secure and easy-to-use digital ticket system will give our guests the ultimate convenience and flexibility in using their seats, added Dave Touhey, Verizon Center senior vice president and general manager.

The card is valid for all seat locations on an account and is swiped using a hand-held computer by an attendant upon entrance to Verizon Center. Patrons then receive a seat locator tab for each valid ticket stored on the card, which is used as the ticket for the game once inside of the arena.

Georgetown athletics is pleased to work with Monumental Sports and Ticketmaster to provide digital ticketing solutions and enhanced technology to fans in an efficient, secure and easy manner, said Dan ONeil, Georgetown University associate athletics director for external affairs. We place a high priority on customer service and are excited to offer digital-ticketing solutions to our loyal Hoya fan base.

In an effort to make the transition to digital tickets as easy as possible, several resources are available to customers. Season-ticket holders will receive a brochure with a detailed explanation of the systems benefits, answers to frequently asked questions and step-by-step instructions on how to use online functionalities. In addition, more information and a series of video tutorials are currently available on the Capitals and Wizards websites.

Fans holding single-game tickets, group tickets and suite tickets will continue to receive paper tickets.

2017-18 Wizards roster review: Tim Frazier

To wrap up the 2017-18 season, we are looking at each player on the Wizards' roster. Today, we evaluate Tim Frazier's season...

Player: Tim Frazier

Position: Point guard

Age: 27

2017-18 salary: $2 million

2017-18 stats: 59 G, 14.2 mpg, 3.0 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 3.3 apg, 0.8 spg, 0.1 bpg, 39.5 FG%, 30.4 3P%, 76.7 FT%, 44.5 eFG%, 105 ORtg, 107 DRtg

Best game: 1/27 at Hawks - 4 points, 14 assists, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, 2-for-5 FG

Season review: The Wizards tabbed Tim Frazier to be their backup point guard nearly a year ago when they sent a second round pick to the New Orleans Pelicans on the eve of draft night. They viewed Frazier as the solution to their years-long search for a capable backup behind John Wall. Frazier had thrived as a replacement starter in New Orleans and the Wizards saw him as worth a draft pick, even though he had just one year left on his contract.

Frazier began the season as the primary backup point guard, but ultimately lost the job to Tomas Satoransky once Wall went out with a left knee injury. Frazier became the starter and Satoransky the backup, but through two weeks Satoransky outplayed him and became No. 2 on the depth chart once Wall returned. Then, when Wall went down for months late in the season, Satoransky started and Frazier backed him up.

Frazier never found consistency as he moved back and forth between roles. His minutes, points and assists averages were all career-lows.

The Wizards added competition to their roster for Frazier and Satoransky midseason, first by signing Ramon Sessions in March and then adding Ty Lawson just before the playoffs began. That led to Frazier being inactive for four of the Wizards' six postseason games.

All in all, it was a frustrating year for Frazier. He even had to deal with a broken nose and surgery to repair it after getting inadvertently kneed in the face by Bobby Portis in a game against the Bulls in February.

Frazier has been part of small group of Wizards players continuing to work out at the team facility this summer. He has been there along with Wall, Ian Mahinmi and Jason Smith. That said, it does seem likely Frazier returns given how the Wizards used him this season. He was completely out of the rotation for extended periods of time.

Helping his cause in that regard is that the Wizards have his Bird rights, meaning they can re-sign him while going above the salary cap. They currently have five open roster spots and not much money to spend. Frazier could represent a cheap option and help them fill out their roster.

Potential to improve: Shooting, on-ball defense, consistency
