Broncos Spending $35M To Upgrade Sports Authority Field
In addition to their $55 million splurge in free agency and plans to sign left tackle Ryan Clady to a big contract this summer, the Denver Broncos are spending another $35 million to fix up their stadium and training facilities.
Team president Joe Ellis said Friday the enhancements at Sports Authority Field include new high-definition scoreboards, a thousand flat-screen TVs and a refurbished concourse. At the team's suburban headquarters, they're replacing the 22-year-old heating system beneath the team's grass football fields "so they'll look nice and green in December, which will be good for the players, better conditions for them," Ellis said.
Also in the blueprints are a better stadium wireless network to accommodate all 75,000 fans trying to send photos from their phones and a new indoor practice facility next to the team's outdoor fields so the players don't have to shuttle on buses to a cramped bubble during bad weather.
The stadium upgrades are all part of enhancing the stadium experience to keep no-shows to a minimum.
"It's a valid point," Ellis said. "...I know we have to do everything we can to make the in-stadium experience match that."
