Sports Authority Field at Mile High 1701 Bryant Street Denver, CO 80204 Capacity: 71,125
If the name sounds unwieldy, there’s a reason. Denver Broncos fans, loathe to part with the “Mile High” designation their previous stadium enjoyed, balked when the team signed a naming rights deal that threatened to put a brand name on their new publicly financed venue. “Sports Authority Field at Mile High” was the compromise that resulted. While it didn’t satisfy everyone - the Denver Post initially refused to refer to the facility by its official name - the controversy did subside long enough for everyone to notice that the Broncos managed to build one of the best stadiums in the National Football League.
For all the debate that greeted its unveiling in ‘01, Sports Authority Field has numerous links to its predecessor. For example, the famous white Bronco statue that served as Mile High Stadium’s trademark - a 27-foot-tall, 1,600-pound sculpture known to Denver residents as “Bucky Bronco” - was removed and placed atop the scoreboard of Sports Authority Field. In addition, architects covered the base of the new stadium in red brick to remind patrons of the old Mile High. The result is a stadium that echoes the past without trying to slavishly recreate it. With its aluminum surfaces and undulating curves, Sports Authority Field is as modern as tomorrow’s headlines.

The Broncos should have no trouble filling Sports Authority Field this fall. Newly acquired quarterback Peyton Manning and company will look to lead Denver back to the playoffs after Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. The Broncos are led by head coach John Fox, formerly of the Panthers, who will look to make his second Super Bowl appearance after leading Carolina to the big game in 2003.
Unlike some of their NFL brethren, the Broncos don’t share their field with a college team. As a result, the stadium’s grass surface is considered by players to be one of the league’s best. Sports Authority Field’s playing surface ranked ninth in a survey conducted by the NFL Players Association last year.
Though there isn’t another football team on the premises, the Broncos don’t have Sports Authority Field all to themselves. The stadium is also home to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. You can get your Colorado Rapids tickets and MLS tickets at Gotickets.
Finally, Sports Authority Field is a favorite concert venue. In fact, it was before an Eagles concert on Aug. 11, ‘01, that “Bucky Bronco” was unveiled atop the south scoreboard.
And don’t forget about the Broncos. They’re aiming to bring a playoff game or two to Sports Authority Field this fall. If they succeed, they and their fans will surely feel, well, mile high. You can be a part of it by buying your Sports Authority Field tickets at Gotickets.
