“It marks a new chapter in a relationship we have maintained for more than a dozen years as the sponsor of the Kettler Capitals Iceplex,” Kettler said. “Now, we are excited to move into the main arena.”

The move will enable KETTLER to reach a broad demographic of people who attend Capitals hockey games, Wizards and Mystics basketball games, and arena football games with the Washington Valor and Baltimore Brigade, along with all other concerts, sports and entertainment events at the arena. The main escalators in thearena at the second-level loft, for example, will carry KETTLER branding and its familiar tagline: “Inspiration. From the Ground Up.”

“Washington is our hometown,” Kettler said. “We are proud to provide apartments, condominiums, townhomes and entire mixed-use communities for residents in the greater Washington, D.C. region.
