ARLINGTON, Va. – OptionIt, Inc., a leader in the next generation of ticket buying for sports and entertainment events, has reached an agreement with the Washington Capitals to be the team’s official “ticket option” provider.  The alliance will give Capitals fans the ability to reserve face-value tickets to select regular-season games as well as all playoff games during the 2009-2010 season.

“This partnership represents our continued commitment to providing Capitals fans greater convenience and flexibility in securing face-value access to games,” said Jim Van Stone, Capitals senior vice president of ticket sales and services.  “OptionIt’s unique technology platform will provide our fans with additional opportunities and flexibility when they are planning to attend Capitals games.

OptionIt partners with sports teams, leagues and event owners (“rights holders”) to provide fans with a convenient way to reserve access to events.   Through OptionIt’s proprietary services, fans can purchase options on tickets to events.   Once purchased, the option can be exercised to buy the ticket at face-value, or it can be sold to another fan through the OptionIt platform. Each option is linked to an actual ticket provided by the rights holder.  As a result, when fans exercise an option, the transaction is completed through the Capitals’ primary ticketing provider.
