Home of the Denver Broncos for
more than 30 years, it was hard for many Bronco fans to picture
the team playing anywhere else than Mile High Stadium. In the
mid 1990’s, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen began demanding that
a new stadium for the team be built. Many Bronco fans were content
with Mile High Stadium, however the Broncos wanted a new state
of the art stadium. In November 1998, voters approved a plan
to construct a new stadium. Construction on the stadium began
in August 1999. Fans attending games at Mile High Stadium could
see the new stadium being constructed because it was built adjacent
to it. Invesco Funds purchased the naming rights to the stadium.
However, to keep the spirit of Mile High Stadium alive, the
facility was named Invesco Field at Mile High. Many fans were
outraged that the new stadium was not named the same as its
Invesco Field at Mile High was completed in just over two
years. The Denver Broncos first game at Invesco Field at Mile
High was on September 10, 2001. Over 76,000 seats are located
throughout the stadium. Incorporating part of the team name,
the main three tier grandstand is in the shape of a horseshoe.
The lower grandstand circles the entire field. Above the seats
in the south endzone is the main video/scoreboard. On top
of the scoreboard is a replica of a bronco named "Bucky".
Using blue, white, and orange seats, the Broncos team logo
has been incorporated into the upper deck above the endzone
on the north side of the stadium. Two video boards are also
located in the upper deck of the north endzone. Invesco Field
at Mile High has many amenities, including the Sports Legends
Mall Legacy Walk, which host pre-game activities, the Colorado
Sports Hall of Fame, and a Broncos team store.
