The Sacremento Kings announced Wednesday plans for a dedicated esports facility inside the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.
The esports facility is a combined training facility, gamer lounge and broadcast center and will operate as a home base for the Sacramento Kings esports efforts, which includes the team’s NBA 2K League roster, but also their future Kings Gaming teams, showing that the Sacramento Kings have more esports ideas in the pipeline.
The space is designed to be a venue within a venue, allowing esports players to produce livestreams and content. A full service studio and green screen suite with 4K cameras means the content that’s pushed out will be top notch
Kings Owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadivé said in a statement: “Using technology to engage with our fans and reach new audiences has always been core to our organization’s mission.”
“Golden 1 Center is the most advanced arena for basketball, entertainment and esports. This state-of-the-art facility will set a new standard and provide the best-in-class tools that the next generation of superstar gamers need to train, compete and win.”
