The Golden State Warriors NBA basketball franchise has expanded its partnership with Biofreeze, which will take on naming rights to the team’s new training and recovery complex at Chase Center.
The newly unveiled Biofreeze Performance Center will serve as the team’s practice facility and player campus. The announcement of the new complex comes after the grand opening of the 18,000-seat Chase Center earlier this month.
The performance centre will total 25,349 square feet and will feature two full-length basketball courts, six hoops, a 4,000-square-foot weight room, a locker room, training and treatment areas, a cryo treatment chamber and a hydro room with float tanks.
Other amenities will include a kitchen, team lounge, barber shop and a theatre. The locker room will also feature a ceiling that resembles the roof of Oracle Arena, the Warriors’ old home, and it will be fitted with the team’s 2015 NBA Championship court.
Each of the player lockers will be fitted with a personal 32-inch television and the circular layout of the room is designed to create a connected team environment.
The Warriors’ president of basketball operations and general manager Bob Myers said: “The Biofreeze Performance Center will rival any such facility in the NBA.
“Early on in the design process it was clear in our conversations with Biofreeze that there was a shared vision in what a state-of-the-art training facility should include, and that’s exactly what we have now in the Biofreeze Performance Center.
“The Biofreeze Performance Center offers our team and coaching staff every competitive advantage available, from the 4,000-square-foot weight room, to the training and recovery spaces. It meets all our needs and is a perfect fit for us from a partner perspective.”
