Lerner appreciates the value of sports and how sports can not only enrich lives and entertain, but also bring communities together.

Washington Nationals Baseball Club

The Lerner family is the proud majority owner of the Washington Nationals Baseball Club. As long-time Washington area residents and honored stewards of the national pastime in the Nation’s Capital, the entire Lerner family is committed to franchise excellence, both on the field and off. The team – winners of four National League East Division titles since 2012 and the 2019 National League pennant and World Series – is buoyed by a talented roster, a strong farm system and the positive “Natitude” of its many fans.

Monumental Sports

The Lerner family is a minority owner of Monumental Sports & Entertainment which owns and operates three professional sports teams: the NBA's Washington Wizards, NHL's Washington Capitals and WNBA's Washington Mystics. Monumental owns and operates Capital One Arena, the premier sports and entertainment venue in Washington, D.C. and controls the local Ticketmaster franchise, Kettler Capitals Iceplex, the Capitals' state-of-the-art training facility in Arlington, Virginia, and EagleBank Arena, located on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
