On the north side of Sports Authority Field at Mile High, between Gates 4 and 5, fans that already have a game-day ticket can enjoy the Mile High Mountain Village. The village is a section of the lower level concourse where fans get a true feel of the Colorado lifestyle.
Dennis Moore is the vice president of sales and marketing for the Denver Broncos and explained why they wanted to give a nod to the Colorado mountains in a section of the stadium.
"We are putting a lot of effort into it. Whether it is food and beverage options which are very much local," Moore said. "As well as bringing beetle kill wood and bring a Colorado mountain feel into this area. The Colorado mountains are uniquely Colorado and our brand is a Colorado brand."
In order to keep the theme going, the first 200 fans who arrive in the village will receive a ski pass to either Winter Park or Steamboat. The gates to the village open at 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon. There will also be Broncos alumni signing autographs, Bronco cheerleaders and Miles the Broncos' mascot.
"[You can also watch] all of the games going on early in the day, you can come down and watch early. There will be beer and food specials. We are putting on the tailgate for fans to come down and watch the Broncos experience," Moore said.
The Broncos season begins on Sunday, Sept. 9 when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
