Golden 1 Center Houses A Dream Setup For Gamers
By Amanda Maxwell
The newly esports studio and video game paradise located inside Golden 1 Center is the first of its kind. This space includes an arcade machine consisting of 150+ classic games, kombucha and cold brew coffee on tap, and a DJ booth, just to name a few standout features.
Kings Guard, Sacramento’s resident NBA 2K League esports team, has made the studio their home since arriving this past April. Here’s a closer look at some of the fun the squad has been having this year and some special guests who have stopped by.

The team was also able to create some hilarious moments with NBA legend and Kings Guard General Manager Shaquille O’Neal in the full-service studio and green screen room right next door.
The facility will also serve as an amenity for touring acts visiting Sacramento’s world-class arena, such as comedians and artists. See what some of the local media in Sactown had to say about the state-of-the-art gaming lounge after stopping by to see it for themselves.
