Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, announced a new strategic corporate partnership with RCN Business Solutions. RCN will be named the first founding partner of the Entertainment and Sports Arena in Congress Heights in Washington DC. The business services agreement has been approved for three years with two option years.

"Events DC is excited to announce this strategic partnership with RCN that will provide our venue guests with enhanced attendee experiences - as well as offer brand alignment on values and community-focused efforts," said Gregory A. O'Dell, president and chief executive officer of Events DC. "RCN has been a great community partner over the years with Events DC, and this is a prime example of a true corporate partnership coming together, dedicated to supporting not only the economic growth of DC but also the local community. We look forward to continuing our partnership with RCN as a proven innovative telecommunications leader."

As Event DC's newest strategic partner, RCN will be the exclusive Internet services provider at both the Entertainment and Sports Arena and The Fields at RFK Campus.

"As a longstanding member of DC's business community, RCN Business Solutions is dedicated to supporting the economic growth and development of the region," said Patrick Knorr, chief commercial officer for RCN. "With our shared vision, RCN Business Solutions and Events DC will continue to uplift and promote the entire community by supporting new business opportunities as well as art and culture events with the addition of the Entertainment and Sports Arena and The Fields at RFK Campus."

The Entertainment and Sports Arena is a 4,200-seat facility that serves as the home court for the WNBA Washington Mystics and NBA G-League's Capital City Go-Go teams. The Arena, which opened in October 2018, also plays hosts to additional programming, including boxing, esports, concerts and other events.

The Fields at RFK Campus cover 27 acres with three new artificial turf recreational fields with community amenities. The Fields include three multi-purpose recreational and community playing fields for amateur sports programs, leagues, tournaments and open play. In addition to the fields, there is a 6,000-square-foot celebration pavilion, public restrooms, a playground and picnic space.
