Invesco Field (Currently Sports Authority Field at Mile High)

In Denver on October 22, 2011 by Todd Cardon Tagged: , , , , ,

Years prior, before Invesco Field was built was the Mile High Stadium. Originally able to host 30 thousand in the early 50’s and 60’s, eventually grew to hold around 60 thousand people. Oddly enough, The Rockies played at this stadium until 1995 where they moved to Coors Field.

Soon as the newly developed stadium was built, the new name was changed from Mile High Stadium to Invesco Field. This created quite the discrepancy. For the longest time, local newspapers would still call it Mile High Stadium.

Costing around 453 dollars, this grand structure has hosted a variety of events, primarily football. First game the Broncos played against the New York Giants, the day before 9/11 in 2001. Ever since the stadium opened, and even before, football games are known to sell out every game.

Other than football, other events have taken place such as concerts from mainstream bands. The Eagles were the first to perform in 2001. Two years later, Metallica played a killer concert with a sold out venue of over 100,000 people. And U2 performed this year in May.

Pro’s and Con’s to an outdoor stadium:

Pros’

You get a great view.

It’s new.

It’s Bigger.

Con’s

It’s cold in the winter!

When it rains it pours.

The name isn’t Mile High Stadium.

Whether good or bad in whoever mind, this stadium isn’t going anywhere for quite some time. It is here to stay and will host thousands of games, concerts and campaigns throughout generations.
