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 predecessor.

Construction of 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.
