Number of seats
Million pounds of reinforcing steel used
The “Broncos Experience” is retained through the seats’ proximity to the field, the horseshoe-shaped bowl, and the use of steel risers and treads for fans to create “Rocky Mountain Thunder.” This new forward-thinking stadium replaced the Broncos’ beloved, if archaic, home of 48 years. Officials selected HNTB Architecture and Fentress Architects to design the 14-story, 76,000-seat stadium, which became an instant Denver landmark.
