Kings to Hold NBA-First Pokémon Go Meetup

Fans are invited to scour Sleep Train Arena for Pokémon, meet fellow trainers and more!

On Friday, July 15, the Sacramento Kings will be opening the doors to Pokémon Go players around the Sacramento region.

In an NBA first, participants will be able to traverse nearly the entire arena looking for the rarest of Pokémon characters.

From 4-8 p.m. PDT on Friday, trainers are encouraged to visit one of the two Pokéstops to secure more potions and Pokéballs as well as test their characters at a nearby Gym located outside of the team’s box office.

Zubats, Pikachus and Growlithes have been known to spend some time on the team’s home hardwood, so be on the lookout for Pokémon throughout the entire lower level.

Parking will be complimentary to all in attendance.
