History of Verizon Center
The Verizon Center originally opened on December 2, 1997 as the MCI Center. Nearly 10 years later in January of 2006, Verizon Communications purchased MCI Inc., and the arena’s name was changed. The following year, the first true indoor high-def LED scoreboard was installed at the Verizon Center.
The Center was built solely with private financing and was originally owned by Abe Pollin from 1997 to June 2010. Following Pollin’s death in November 2009, Abe Pollin’s family sold Verizon Center, along with the Washington Wizards and the Washington-Baltimore area Ticketmaster franchise to Ted Leonsis. Ted Leonsis already owned the Washington Capitals, the Verizon Center’s other tenant.
The Verizon Center is considered a big commercial success and is regarded as one of the driving catalysts of the revitalization of Washington D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood.
