Japanese automotive manufacturer Lexus has extended its partnership with Capital One Arena, home of NHL ice hockey team the Washington Capitals and NBA basketball franchise the Washington Wizards.

Lexus agreed the multi-year extension with Monumental Sports & Entertainment, owner and operator of the arena and the two teams.

The company will retain full naming rights to the suite level and parking garage at Capital One Arena. In addition, Lexus will remain an official vehicle of Capital One Arena, which is currently undergoing a $40m (£30.8m/€34.3m) renovation.

Two car displays will provide fans with the opportunity to see the latest Lexus vehicles, while special reserved spots are also available for Lexus owners in the Lexus Parking Garage.

Patrick Duffy, senior vice-president of global partnerships at Monumental Sports & Entertainment, said: “In Lexus we have secured an innovative partner who will utilise a wide array of elements that touch multiple locations throughout Capital One Arena and beyond.”
