Pregame tailgating is a long-standing tradition for Broncos fans that continues to this day at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Tailgating is permitted in all stadium parking lots and we encourage fans to have a good time, but to do so responsibly.

First-Come, First-Served Tailgating Spaces

For fans without a parking permit, first-come, first-served tailgating spaces at the stadium are sold in lots C and N. Lot C sells for $30 / space and opens at 8am for 2pm / 2:30pm kickoffs, at 12pm for 6:30pm / 7pm kickoffs, and at 2pm for 8:15pm kickoffs. Lot N sells for $20 / space and opens for cash and permit parking 5 hours prior to the scheduled kickoff time. 
Fans are advised to arrive early if interested in purchasing a cash spot on game day, as these spaces sell out very quickly. Once these cash lots are sold out, vehicles without parking permits will be directed to off-site overflow lots at Pepsi Center & the Auraria Campus.

Additional Tailgating Information


The Broncos official pre game tailgate party takes place in the Mountain Village, free for all fans with a game ticket with entry permitted at Gate 4. Fans can catch early NFL action from around the country on high-definition, 55” flat-screen monitors and enjoy appearances by Broncos Cheerleaders, Alumni, and Miles the mascot. Other activities and entertainment including a DJ, face painters and caricature artists ensure every member of the family will have a great time. New this year is the All-You-Can-Eat Tailgate that fans can purchase inside Gate 4 for $25! Enjoy 2 for 1 beers, All-You-Can-Eat, and prizes!


The Noble Energy Sports Legends Mall offers a number of activities and pre game entertainment for fans of all ages.  Fans catch the early NFL action on a large, outdoor video board while enjoying pregame food and beverage specials.  Children will be able to play on a number of outdoor inflatables or participate in other activities including sign making, face painting, etc.


Fans can get some shopping done at the Denver Broncos Team Store which is located on the south end of the stadium directly below the main scoreboard.  The team store is open for fans from outside the stadium before stadium gates open.  Once stadium gates are open, the team store is only accessible from inside the stadium concourse by fans with a game ticket.


Cheer the Broncos players as they enter the stadium at the South/West Tunnel located below the Gate 10 area. This is a great location to see your favorite Broncos players in a setting different than on the field, however please note that due to pre-game schedule requirements for players, autographs are not likely at this time.


The new Ring of Fame Plaza outside the stadium’s south end, incorporates 24 8’ steel monuments in honor of 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 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.
