US basketball team, the Sacramento Kings, is launching mobile ordering, social payments and express kiosks at its Golden 1 Center stadium, via a partnership with social payments platform, Cheq. Fans will be able to use CHEQ's technology to reduce order wait times in the arena and share the gameday experience with their friends during the 2022-23 NBA Season.
Under the agreement, Cheq will become the Official Mobile Ordering and Social Payments Partner of the Sacramento Kings, Golden 1 Center and Kings Guard Gaming. Mobile ordering for pick-up will be available at select concession locations throughout the arena starting this Friday as the team takes on the Oklahoma City Thunder, enabling fans to enjoy their favourite food, drinks and treats easily and friction-free. In addition, express kiosk ordering will be enabled at four of the busiest concessions in the arena.
"Golden 1 Center continues to push the envelope, remaining at the forefront of new technology to provide a seamless payment experience for our fans," said Sacramento Kings President of Business Operations, John Rinehart. "Additionally, with Cheq's new social sharing feature, fans outside of the arena can add to the fun of the game by sending purchases to their friends and family inside the venue from anywhere in the world."
