Broncos' HQs Construction Leaves Fans Without Chance To Attend Training Camp
The Broncos' $35M renovation of their Dove Valley HQs "should be completed by the time players report for the start of training camp around July 24," while the new fieldhouse should be "operational around midseason," according to Mike Klis of the DENVER POST. However, there "is no place for fans to park at training camp" until the upgrades are complete. That will force the Broncos to hold training camp "without the energy boost from their fans." To "help compensate for the missed training camp sessions," the Broncos will hold three open practices at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Parking "will be free for all three sessions." The Broncos the last two years "averaged 2,833 fans for their 15 camp days at Dove Valley, a total of 42,495 fans." The summer scrimmages at Sports Authority Field the past two years "drew an average crowd of 42,872" (DENVER POST, 4/25).
