Crowding and lines at concession stands have long plagued sports fans.
That could soon change at one NBA arena, however, thanks to a new Amazon Go-style cashier-less store that will allow people to grab food and drinks without waiting in lines or checking out.
The store will open in October at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, which is home to the NBA's Sacramento Kings.
It's powered by Zippin, which recently opened its first checkout-free store in San Francisco.
"Banish the checkout line. That's Zippin's motto," Zippin CEO Krishna Motukuri said in a statement. " When Zippin launches in Golden 1 Center this Fall, Sacramento Kings fans will be able to walk in, grab a beer, and walk out in under 30 seconds."
To use the store without checking out, shoppers must download the Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center app or the Zippin app.
Cameras and sensors will track what shoppers grab off the store's shelves.
Customers will also have the option of shopping the store by presenting a valid debit or credit card at the entrance.
The store will be open to the public during Sacramento Kings home games and concerts
