If you were planning on going to Denver Broncos training camp at the Dove Valley facilities, forget about it.
Personally, I’d already scheduled a trip out to the Mile High City with my family to take in camp, but those dreams are no more. Here’s the bad news first:
“It is disappointing that the construction of the new indoor practice field and improvements to our existing building will not allow us to accommodate fans at the facility for training camp this year, but we are looking forward to hosting multiple practices at Sports Authority Field at Mile High that are free and open to the public,” Executive Director of Media Relations Patrick Smyth told Susie Wargin of 9News
The good news is included within the quote. The Broncos will host practices open to the public out at Sports Authority Field at Mile High to compensate for this disappointing news.
The practices at SAF will be Sunday, July 27th, Wednesday, July 30th, and Saturday, August 2nd (scrimmage).
The Broncos remain very excited about the new renovations.
“The improvements will significantly enhance the fan experience at the facility starting next season (with) better visibility, substantially more capacity (three times the seating) and improved restrooms,” said Smyth.
So, Broncos fans, adjust your schedules.
