Denver Sporting Events
In Denver, sports run deep. Denver is one of only two U.S. cities to have seven professional sports teams, including Super Bowl 50 Champions - The Denver Broncos. Three of Denver's sports stadiums, Coors Field, Pepsi Center and Sports Authority Field at Mile High, offer tours to the public. Dick's Sporting Goods Park is one of the world's largest professional soccer complexes. The Mile High City truly has it all.
Sports Authority Field at Mile High - 4 miles
- Denver Broncos - Congratulations to the 2016 World Champions!
The 76,000 seat Sports Authority Field at Mile High is where the three-time World Champions Denver Broncos call home. Here in Denver, being a Broncos fan isn't just a hobby - it's a way of life. On game days, you'll see the entire city "United in Orange".
Sports Authority Field at Mile High has sold out every Denver Broncos' home game since its inception in 2001, carrying over the "sold-out" tradition from Mile High Stadium, where every home game had been sold out since 1970. The fans are known for creating their own 'Mile High Thunder' by stamping their feet on the stadium's floors.
- Denver Outlaws can also be found Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Denver Outlaws are the men's Major League Lacrosse professional field lacrosse team since 2006. Since joining the league, they have been one of its more successful teams, having appeared in the championship game five times with their first MLL Championship in 2014.
Pepsi Center - 3 miles
- Colorado Avalanche face off at Denver's Pepsi Center (capacity 18,000). The team is led by Coach Patrick Roy (one of the greatest goaltenders of all time), and general manager Joe Sakic, a former NHL star. Known by the fans as the "Avs", the team has won nine division titles - including their first eight in a row in Denver, the longest such streak in NHL history.
- Denver Nuggets tip off at the Denver's Pepsi Center (19,000 capacity). The Nuggets are part of the Kroenke Sports Enterprises and have been thrilling Denver basketball fans since 1976. After 18 seasons as the "supermascot" of the Denver Nuggets, Rocky has been inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame.
- Colorado Mammoth have proven that lacrosse is gaining a fervent following in The Mile High City. The team is part of the growing National Lacrosse League and plays home games at the Pepsi Center. The Mammoth took home the league championship in 2006.
Coors Field - 4 miles
- Colorado Rockies have entertained Denver locals and MLB fans since Coors Field opened in 1995. Fun Facts: While most of the seats in Coors Field are dark green, the seats in the 20th row of the upper deck are purple to mark the elevation of one mile (5280 feet) above sea level. During construction, workers discovered a number of dinosaur fossils throughout the grounds, including a 7-foot-long, 1,000-pound triceratops skull. This later led to the selection of a dinosaur as the Rockies' mascot, "Dinger".
Dick's Sporting Goods Park - 10 miles
- Colorado Rapids came to Denver in 1996 as a founding club of Major League Soccer. The team has advanced to the playoffs several times, winning the MLS Cup in 2010. The Rapids moved to the new Dick's Sporting Goods Park in 2007, a large complex consisting of 24 full-size soccer fields that also hosts games for local youth and recreational leagues.
