The home of the Denver Broncos‘ will be seeing a variety of developments with over $100m being directed towards upgrading the stadium.
Empower Field at Mile High will gain upgrades to the video boards, premium hospitality areas, technology, concessions, the Broncos Team Store and elevators. The project will begin after the season and conclude before the 2023 campaign.
“This significant investment in Empower Field at Mile High – the largest in the stadium’s history – demonstrates the deep commitment by the Walton-Penner Family Ownership Group to immediately and continually provide the best possible experience for our fans,” stated the club’s President, Damani Leech.
“As we look toward the future with the long-term plans for our stadium, we are equally focused on the present to ensure Empower Field at Mile High remains a premier sports and entertainment venue.
“We are excited to announce these upgrades to Empower Field at Mile High and are grateful for the support of our ownership group, the Metropolitan Football Stadium District and the NFL.”
The Metropolitan Football Stadium District approved $12m in funding for the project, while the remainder of the cost will be assumed by the Broncos with G-4 financing.
The scoreboard above the south stands will be expanded by 70%, which will create a video board that would currently be the fourth largest in any NFL stadium.
It will be better equipped to display statistics, high-definition replays and improved in-game entertainment. Denver will also upgrade that videoboard, two other in-bowl video boards and the ribbon board to High Dynamic Range-quality displays.
Furthermore, Broncos will renovate suites and surrounding corridors. The upgrades will also feature an all-inclusive hospitality space on field level, and a ‘revamping of the United Club with improved A/V technology and larger HD video displays’.
Finally, as well as wifi and concession enhancements, the Broncos will expand the Team Store by 25% and increase the space by 3,000 square feet.
