The Capital City Go-Go, the Washington Wizards’ NBA G League affiliate, announced today their 2019-20 regular-season schedule, which will tip-off on November 9 at the Entertainment and Sports Arena against the Grand Rapids Drive at 7:00 p.m. Check out the full schedule here.
“We can’t wait to represent Ward 8 and see the fans back at the Entertainment and Sports Arena for the second season of Go-Go basketball,” said Go-Go Head Coach Ryan Richman. “It’s exciting to see the schedule and know that we are close to getting back to work on the court and in the community.”
Capital City will once again play 24 games in Ward 8, 16 of which will fall on the weekend (six on Friday, five on Saturday and five on Sunday – four of which will be 3:00 p.m. tip-offs). The Go-Go will host two Education Day games this season, the first coming on Tuesday, December 3 against the Lakeland Magic, and the second on Tuesday, February 25 against the Maine Red Claws with both games tipping off at 11:30 a.m.
The Go-Go will now be a member of a five-team Southeast Division, as the College Park Skyhawks begin their first season as the affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks at the new Gateway Center in College Park, Georgia. Capital City will face College Park, the Greensboro Swarm, Erie BayHawks and Lakeland Magic four times apiece – two at home and two on the road.
With a now 15-team Eastern Conference in the NBA G League, the Go-Go will play three games each against eight Eastern Conference teams and two games against the other two teams in the East. Capital City will host the Maine Red Claws, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Westchester Knicks, and Windy City Bulls twice and travel to each team once while they will travel twice to the Canton Charge, Delaware Blue Coats, Raptors 905 and Wisconsin Herd and host each team once. The Go-Go will have a two-game home-and-away series with the Long Island Nets and Grand Rapids Drive.
Capital City will play two of the Western Conference division teams during the season, with the Midwest Division at home and the Southwest on the road. The Go-Go will host the Oklahoma City Blue and Sioux Falls Skyforce for the first time in the Nation’s Capital, while the Go-Go will make their first appearances at the Texas Legends and defending NBA G League Champion Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the Southwest Division.
The Go-Go have two four-game homestands during the season, the first from November 27-December 3 against three Southeast Division opponents and the second from December 27-January 5 against Maine, Windy City, Fort Wayne, and Oklahoma City. Capital City will not play a game at home for 19 days between December 8-27 as they embark on a two-game road trip and observe the NBA G League Winter Break. The team’s longest stretch of consecutive road games will take place from March 6-14, as the Go-Go play two sets of back-to-backs at Windy City and Wisconsin and then Rio Grande Valley and Texas.
Full season memberships for the Go-Go’s 2019-20 season start at just $10. For more information about full season ticket memberships and partial season ticket plans, click here or call the ticket sales office at (202) 864-4350.
