STADIUM TRADITIONS

Horseshoe Shape
Sports Authority Field at Mile High is designed in the Broncos legendary and traditional horseshoe shape.








South Stands
At Mile High Stadium, Broncos fans in the South Stands created an intimidating and deafening background every home game. Located directly above the Visitor's Locker Room, visiting teams could feel the south stands and the intensity of the crowd before even taking the field. At Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the South Stands continue to honor and represent all Broncos fans, the most loyal and supportive of any in sports.



Rocky Mountain Thunder
13,500 tons of steel treads of risers and a severely pitched seating bowl allow Broncos fans to recreate a hallmark of Mile High Stadium, a metal clamor known as "Rocky Mountain Thunder".







Bucky
Whether called Bucky or Bucko, this Denver icon has maintained his lofty perch since 1975. Modeled after Roy Rogers horse Trigger, the 1,600 lbs. 27' high statue was fully refurbished after the final home game at Mile High Stadium before retaking his position at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on August 11, 2011.





Ring of Fame
Created in 1984 by team owner Pat Bowlen, the Ring of Fame honors the greatest Broncos players and administrators in the history of the franchise.







"Stadium Within a Park"
The park like area on the east side of the stadium integrates the landscape of the South Platte River with native grasses, creating the feeling of a loose, undulating plain. Autumn Blaze Maples are placed in cocentric circles, forming "pass through the land" a public art project incorporated in the east side.





Counties Gateway Plaza
The Counties Gateway Plaza on the stadium's west side was designed as a ceremonial entrance featuring Colorado native hackberry shade trees and individual monuments to each of the six counties of metropolitan Denver whose residents helped to fund the construction of Sports Authority Field at Mile High.





Noble Energy Sports Legends Mall
On the south end of the stadium, a grand lawn, normally home to the Broncos Barn, provides an on-site festival and event area with a permanent stage, utility service and other necessary requirements for activities to take place.






Ring of Fame Plaza
The Ring of Fame Plaza outside the stadium's south end, incorporates 8’ steel monuments honoring each of the Broncos Ring of Fame inductees. Symbolizing the historical pillars of the franchise, the monuments were forged from the same type of steel as original as used to construct Mile High Stadium, the Broncos original home of 50 years and one of the most beloved and storied stadiums in NFL history. Ring of Fame Plaza is located adjacent to the Broncos Fountain outside the stadium just behind the main scoreboard.
