The passion for sports in Denver runs deep. The Sporting News declared, “The Best Sports City [in 1997] is Denver, where the sun shines 300 days a year and the sports possibilities are cloudless year-round … Denver comes together as a unique setting for sports of all kinds." And if you're in town to catch one of the many exciting Denver sporting events, the JW Marriott is where you want to be.
With eight professional sports teams and several college programs, there is a strong, established base of season ticket holders and fans that know the value of supporting sports in the Metro Denver area. The full compliment of professional franchises includes the Denver Broncos, the Denver Nuggets, 2007 National League Champion Colorado Rockies and the Colorado Avalanche.
Not many cities can boast of having eight or more major league teams, let alone the sheer number of other professional league and college teams. Our community is proud of its ability to support all the teams that call Denver home.
