Envisioned to be the premier sports and entertainment center in Sacramento, California, Golden 1 Center opened in 2016 primarily to be the home of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings
. Team owner Vivek Ranadivé promised the NBA that he would build the Kings a new stadium in Sacramento before the 2017 NBA season, which was fulfilled a year ahead of schedule. The Kings played their first game at the arena on October 10, 2016, against the Maccabi Haifa B.C. in a preseason game. Since then, Golden 1 Center has hosted a number of sports and entertainment events including the Kings home games, the first WWE pay-per-view event, Mixed Martial Arts competitions, some of the games of 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, and live music concerts. Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton and the Chainsmokers are among the music luminaries who have graced its stage.
Conceptualized as the perfect example of a “21st Century Coliseum,” Golden 1 Center is impressive inside and out. It reflects the heart and core of Northern California by utilizing regionally sourced materials that are endemic to the region. The center’s rooftop was installed with solar power, making it the most technologically advanced arena in the country. The stadium boasts 1,000 Wi-Fi access points for its seating capacity of 17,500. The network can handle over 500,000 Snapchat posts per second, and guests can order food from their seats through the team’s official app. The entire venue is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technology including the largest screens in the NBA, over 1,500 feet of LED ribbon boards installed throughout the arena bowl, and a rooftop platform with light pipes, providing visually engaging light shows. There are more than 13,500 parking spaces within a half-mile radius, and the venue is accessible by public transportation.
Golden Center 1 is located right in the heart of Sacramento. As such, it is just minutes away from the city’s attractions including the California State Railroad Museum, Tower Bridge, Wells Fargo History Museum Old Sacramento, California State Capitol and Museum, Sutter’s Fort, Sacramento Zoo and Old Sacramento. The city is also known for its nightlife, with a wide range of wine bars, breweries and clubs to enjoy.
