  • Broncos, Stadium District to spend $30 million on Mile High improvements Read more:

    Heck yeah!!!
    When the Super Bowl committee looks at Denver as a possible host for the NFL championship game, the Broncos will have something new for the committee to consider.
    About $30 million in improvements will be made to Sports Authority Field at Mile High in time for the 2013 season.
    Most of the money will be allocated to updating the stadium's video boards.
    "It's not really tied to the Super Bowl bid," said Andy Gorchov, general manager of the stadium management company, the operating arm for Sports Authority Field. "The potential year for a Super Bowl is pretty far down the road. This is more about a need to provide the best fan experience we can today and tomorrow."
    The cost will be shared by the Broncos and the Metropolitan Football Stadium District and won't involve new taxes.
    "Funds are paid into the account on a yearly basis and are used for stadium upgrades and renovations to prolong the life of the facility," said Stadium District spokesman Matt Sugar.
    The largest video board behind the south stands will be high- definition LED (light emitting diode) and three times larger at 8,800 square feet.
    The video boards in the stadium's northeast and northwest sections will be 43 percent larger. The "ribbon" boards that run along the third-level façade also will be replaced.
    "The original boards that are installed at the stadium are still good boards, obviously, but they really have a life expectancy of about 10 years for that type of technology," Gorchov said. "The other issue is we have to upgrade the entire stadium to high definition."
    TV monitors in the concourses will also be replaced by HD flat screens. And the overall audio system throughout the stadium will be upgraded.
    Also, upgrades will be made to the concourses throughout the stadium and in suite-window replacement.
    "These are improvements that will benefit everyone that's in attendance," Gorchov said. "It doesn't matter what section you are in, seating area you're in. Everybody benefits from these improvements."
    The improvements can't hurt the Broncos in their attempt to bring the Super Bowl to Denver. The team and city of Denver submitted an application to bid on hosting the Super Bowl for the 2018, 2019 or 2020 season.

              Ha Ha Ha! You can thank me (and probably a few thousand others). I'm a season ticket holder and we got a survey a couple of months back asking (among other things) about what could be down to improve the Mile High experience.

              I SAID A BIGGER SCREEN OVER THE SOUTH STANDS (of course, my seats are in the North Stands, so I would benefit).

              You're welcome....

                    I would be absolutely furious if Denver ever made a dome. It's not football if it's in a dome in my opinion

                        I was talking to a guy at the stadium after an Outlaws game in June, and he said something about making the jumbotron bigger this offseason... I didn't realize it was going to be 3x bigger I can't wait to see it

                          If we really wanted a dome... We'd just go watch basketball instead.
