Invesco Field Denver CO Hosts Various Sporting and Entertainment Events
Invesco Field Denver CO is best known as the home of the National Football League's (NFL) Denver Broncos. However, it is also used for other sporting and entertainment events throughout the year. The naming rights of the venue were sold to Invesco for $120 million. However, it was a controversial decision, since many fans had hoped the facility would be named Mile High Stadium, which was the name of the venue it replaced.
The Outlaws, major league lacrosse club, also plays its home games at the venue and several college and high school football games have been held there. The complex sits in the city's Sun Valley neighborhood. There's a light rail transportation system that serves it. The capacity for football games is listed as 76,125 and it has a natural grass turf. There are numerous private and luxury suites in the venue which enables the capacity to fluctuate.
Construction on the building began in August of 1999. It opened just over two years later in September of 2001. The cost to build the facility was approximately $365 million. The first event held at the new location was a concert by the American rock/country band The Eagles. The Broncos played their first game there on Sept. 10, 2001.
It is believed that the largest crowd ever at the stadium was about 100,000 for a concert by American rockers Metallica in August of 2003. The record crowd for a football game was 77,160 back in 2007 when the Broncos lost to the Green Bay Packers in a Monday Night Football telecast.
Invesco Field Denver CO also saw Barack Obama accept the nomination from the Democratic Party for president there in 2008. About 84,000 supporters showed up at the facility to hear his speech as the Democratic National Convention was moved from the city's 20,000 capacity Pepsi Center due to the size of the crowd.
