Former NBA star to promote Sacramento Kings’ new arena in China

By Pu Yang 14 Mar 2016

Former NBA star Doug Christie is soon to start his China tour to promote Sacramento Kings’ Golden 1 Center. The tour will take in three Chinese cities from 18 – 21 March, according to a report on Chinese web portal Netease.

The report says Doug Christie will promote Sacramento King’s EB-5 program in Beijing, Shenyang and Changchun where he will meet investors and supporters. The project, which will see the NBA side build a new basketball arena, is now an opportunity for Chinese investors who are interested in EB-5 visas.

The EB-5 program, which is run by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service, grants a foreign investor a US visa for making a $1 million investment that creates at least 10 new and permanent jobs for Americans.

Golden 1 Center, Sacramento Kings’ arena combined with the surrounding mixed-use development,is expected to open in October.
