Sacramento Kings Rumors
In fin-tech, the Kings have been and will continue to accept Bitcoin as a method of payment for tickets and merchandise. They have been using drone technology to give their social media followers updates on the construction of the Golden 1 Center. An official partnership with Uber gives game attendees discounted transportation to and from the arena. And most recently in the virtual reality tech world the Kings have teamed with Oculus Rift, the VR firm Facebook recently purchased for $2 billion, to give potential ticket-plan buyers the in-game experience from the vantage point of stadium seating levels.
It will not come as a surprise that with a background like Ranadive’s, the Kings as a business are being run with tech at the forefront. But is the business business side outsourcing the basketball business side? A fair question considering, according to their NBA.com website, they have 43 employees listed as business operations employees and 16 as basketball operations employees.
