Description

Westword's Description

Sports Authority Field at Mile High is the major sports venue in the city, but Mile High is the only part of the football stadium's name that's stayed consistent during its history. The previous football arena was known simply as Mile High Stadium, and when a new facility was built in 2001, gridiron fans across the city lobbied to keep the old name for the new stadium. Corporate interests won out, and it was dubbed Invesco Field -- but at least they were smart enough to keep part of the old name in a nod at the end: Invesco Field at Mile High. In 2011, Sports Authority claimed the right to name the field, and kept the Mile High part. A few other notable stadium consistencies: The Broncos still play here, and there's still a contrasting bar of seats around the stadium to show you exactly where the mile marker works its magic.

Merchant's Description

Sports Authority Field at Mile High totals 1.8 million square feet with five levels of seating and a capacity of 76,125, including 8,200 club seats and 132 luxury suites.

Tips from foursquare

  • HISTORY on 04/05/10

    A sculpture called "The Broncos" features seven larger-than-life horses running up a mountain, through a stream. A ring of fame honors the great Broncos of the past, including quarterback John Elway

    INVESCO Field’s opening event was an Eagles concert that occurred on August 11, 2001.

  • ESPN on 08/14/12

    Welcome to the House That Elway Built. Big John’s name sits right smack in the middle of the Broncos Ring of Fame, in between goalposts of the North end zone

  • Sports Authority on 11/11/10

    Be sure to join in on the "Incomplete Chant!" After the announcer states the incomplete pass, fans complete the chant by saying "In-com-plete!" followed by the infamous "sad trombone" sound effect.
