The Sacramento Kings will hold an open practice at Golden 1 Center on Oct. 1, the team’s first public event at their new downtown arena.
The event – dubbed Fan Fest – will be free, but fans will need to secure tickets at www.Kings.com/FanFest. Fans will be able to get up to four tickets. The practice is scheduled to run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
In addition to the practice, fans will “be able to explore the arena (and) get acclimated with Local Eats stands,” according to a team press release.
A Kings practice will be part of what is expected to be a busy week at Golden 1 Center. The team news release said the Kings will “unveil a schedule of select events – private and public” in the days ahead.
The open practice will be followed three days later by a Paul McCartney concert, the first major event at the $556 million arena. It launches a busy first month for the arena – 10 events are planned for October at Golden 1, including a Maroon 5 concert, Kings games and a WWE event.
