Thirty-one years after their first game in Sacramento, the Kings are set to play their first regular season home game at the brand new Golden 1 Center.

FOX40's own Lonnie Wong was at that first game, inside the first ARCO Arena (previously known as the Sacramento Sports Arena). Fans truly brought the famous ARCO Thunder for that first game, especially after the team's first basket. At the end of his report, Lonnie said it would remain to be seen if fan enthusiasm would remain.

Decades later, it's very clear that it has.
