Denver Broncos Call Sports Authority Field Home
The Broncos play at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. It is known by this name since the stadium sits exactly 1 mile above sea level. The Broncos share the stadium with the Denver Outlaws, the city’s Major League Lacrosse team. The stadium is full of great architectural features that creates a supercharged fan environment for everyone to enjoy during games. See the Sports Authority Field at Mile High seating chart for more information.
Before a game fans can enjoy special tailgating areas in Lot C. Spots in this lot sell for $30 per space and sell out early on game days. Tailgating in other lots must take place immediately next to your vehicle.
Fans entering through the Counties Gateway Plaza on the west side of the stadium will notice a number of sculptures. The marble sculptures and monuments here represent each of the six counties from the Denver area along with their individual flags. Some of the sculptures here are part of the “Equipment Field” throughout the plaza. The pieces of giant equipment protrude out of the ground at varying heights giving the appearances of items cast off by a player after a game.
Visitors who enter from the south side of the stadium can see “The Broncos” sculpture. The display includes five broncos, one colt and one mare that are one and a half times their normal size. The horses appear to be running up a hill with a water feature that completes the scene.
Inside the Sports Authority Field is the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. The museum is open year round and opens two hours before a home game. The exhibits tell the stories of Colorado athletes. Admission to the museum is free and it is located on the west side of the stadium.
A unique feature inside the stadium is the Bucky Bronco statue above the south scoreboard. The statue was cast from a mold of Roy Rogers horse, Trigger. The agreement with Rogers was that the horse would not have the same name, so he was named Bucky Bronco. The statue is 27 feet tall and weighs over 1,600 pounds.
Inside the stadium fans on the upper levels can also view the Ring of Fame. The area honors important people in the Denver Broncos history and is on the outside of level 5.
After kickoff visitors can join other fans by saying the “Incomplete Chant” after an incomplete pass is thrown by the other team. Once the announcer makes the call over the loudspeaker, the fans cheer “IN-COM-PLETE” in the stadium.
Obtaining tickets to a Broncos game can sometimes be difficult. Every home game has been a sellout at the stadium since it opened in 2001. Single game tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster on the team’s website. The cost for tickets ranges in price from $45 in the end zone up to $400 for stadium club level seats when available.
Attending a game a mile above sea level is an exciting experience for fans at Sports Authority Field. Fans can enjoy a game while taking in all of the stadium’s unique architectural features.
