What better way to enjoy basketball games then in this new stadium that is being built? The Golden 1 Center is a multi-purpose indoor arena, currently under construction in downtown Sacramento, California. The design of this sports arena is meant to blow your minds. That means building an arena that doesn’t just have concrete at its core. It also has code. The Golden 1 Center is being created to be flexible enough to adapt to what the future brings.
People experience games, concerts, fights, monster truck rallies, and everything else lots of different ways. But one thing’s constant today, people want to stay connected. This sports arena hopes to be the most technologically advanced sports arena ever built. Can you imagine walking in to this arena and never wanting to leave? When it’s done, the arena will feel like not just a place for basketball but a space that’s woven into the fabric of the city, not just physically, but digitally. In the words of Kings CTO Ryan Montoya, “the fans would only be limited by their own devices.”
All around Golden 1 Center, nearly every object from the turnstiles that let people in the building to the lines outside the bathrooms to that 84-foot screen is connected in some way, feeding streams of data back into the system. If it all works, most fans will never even think about the technology. They’ll just come in, easily find their way to their seat, and enjoy the game in any low or high tech way they please.
