In meeting with Mayor, Local Companies Re-Affirm $50M Commitment to Keeping Kings in Sacramento
SACRAMENTO, CA -- Today, Mayor Kevin Johnson met with a group of 25 local companies and organizations who have collectively pledged $50 million in sponsorships for the Sacramento Kings' first five seasons in a new entertainment and sports complex (ESC).
"Once again, our corporate community has come through in the clutch," said Mayor Johnson. "This group -- representing companies across our entire region -- understand the critical role that both the NBA and new downtown entertainment and sports complex will play in promoting job creation, economic growth, and civic pride in our community. I applaud their exceptional leadership and powerful demonstration of just how strong and viable our market is."
