It may have been a little over three months since the Nationals won D.C.'s first World Series title since 1933, but the team is far from finished with celebrating the monumental achievement.

The Nationals announced Monday morning that they're going to host "Championship Week" during the team's first homestand of the 2020 season.

For their home opener against the New York Mets on April 2, the Nationals will reveal their World Series banner for the first time in front of what's expected to be a sold-out crowd at South Capitol Street. The ring presentation will follow ahead of their next game April 4 before hosting what they're calling "Champions Day" on April 5 to close out the series with the Mets.

The festivities will continue into the next series against the Miami Marlins with giveaways of championship beads (April 6), a Davey Martinez World Series bobblehead (April 7) and a champions cinch bag (April 8).

Washington will open the season March 26 against the Mets with the game scheduled to be nationally televised on ESPN at 1:10 p.m. The Nationals will play six games before heading back to the District and kicking off their celebrations with their hometown fans.
