Invesco Field at Mile High has been the home of the Denver Broncos
since 2001 and is owned by the Denver Metropolitan Football Stadium
District (the Stadium Management Company). Located at 1701 Mile High Stadium Circle West, Denver, CO 80204, the stadium can hold more than 76,000
people and has featured near season sellouts for the last two seasons.
There are 106 luxury suites and 8,500 club level seats available
for fans of the AFC contenders and almost every seat offers a view
of some sort, most notably the Rocky Mountains nearby. The natural
grass surface and stadium cost the city $364.2 million through
an extended sales tax. A quarter of the cost (just over $91 million)
was paid for by Chief Executive Owner Pat Bowlen. Invesco Field
features twice as much space as Mile High Stadium, the old stadium
that played host to the Broncos during their two championship seasons. Invesco paid $120 million dollars for the naming rights.
The stadium also has wider concourses and seats, more restrooms,
elevators, and escalators, and is more accommodating to the disabled. The Broncos
also offer parking packages in addition to individual, season, reserved, and
club level tickets. Over the years, the Broncos have had a 96% renewal rate
of season tickets, showing that they can put a good product on the field and
that they also take care of the fans that come to watch the game.
