The playing surface at Sports Authority Field at Mile High is a 100 percent natural grass field made up of four different Kentucky Bluegrasses, overseeded with perennial ryegrass. The grass surface is stabilized by a network of polypropylene fibers that were sewn vertically into the sod every 3/4”. This process took three weeks, with crews working 24 hours a day. The technology was developed by DD GrassMaster out of Holland, and has been used at over 100 stadiums worldwide. Underneath the sod is a sand root zone laid above an extensive drainage and soil heating system. After heavy rain, in a matter of minutes, surface water can be drained with a strong suction system called Sub-Air. The ground is also heated during the winter months by a network of 21 miles of underground hot water tubing. Sports Authority Field at Mile High is proud to utilize all of these components which make up this world-class playing surface.

"The Broncos," a gift to the people of Colorado from Pat Bowlen and the Bowlen family, is located on the south end of the stadium. Created in Florence, Italy, by world-renowned sculptor Sergio Benvenuti, this sculpture consists of five broncos, one mare and one colt. The horses are 1-1/2 times life-size and depict horses running up hill in an alpine mountain setting. The sculpture looks like a snapshot in time. The water feature, which resembles a raging stream, pumps 850 gallons per minute and is slightly heated so in the winter, steam rises from the stream. Special lighting illuminates the sculpture at night.
