Invesco Field Tour
So you’ve been to a Broncos Game. Or a concert at Invesco. Maybe your high school prom was here. Then you’ve seen Invesco, well, you think you have. But if you want to line your toes up with the turf, the tour bus is waiting!
You will be taken to the press room, club level, locker rooms, keg rooms, field level and a few other areas sprinkled in along the way. And for those that came knocking for some trivia it’s handed right to you. Did you know that Invesco was built with just two more seats than the old Mile High Stadium? This one was finished with 76, 125 seats.
And what would this stadium be without the Rocky Mountain Thunder that Mile High was famous for igniting on game days? Fans stomped on the steel grounds to bring it on!
This stadium was built up with concrete, but you betchya there is steel placed on floorboards of some areas, that thunder still speaks. And the grass on the field isn’t all a la natural. There are 17 million strands of artificial stands sewn in to give the grass more traction.
So bring out the orange and blue, even if it’s not season. Call 720.258.3000 to schedule your tour. Tours start in the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame at Invesco, so plan a little time before or after to read up on the athletes inducted. It’s on!
