DMO Client Event

with the Washington Nationals

This year’s event will be Wednesday afternoon, June 21, 2023, with a 1:05 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals.  Tickets are $200.00 each and include Diamond Club seating behind the home plate and All-You-Can-Eat refreshments in the Diamond Club.

Each DMO would need to commit to having at least one representative and one client attending (the minimum expense would be $400.00 per DMO).  There is no limit to the number of clients a DMO may invite, but each guest ticket will cost $200.00.
