Hey all, My name just came up on the season ticket waiting list, and I purchased some seats. I'm in section 503. How are the seats, and the view?

Considering there are probably about 20 rows in that section, that info could make a big difference as well.

Honestly, my seats are in 506 and they're HIGH. But thankfully, you rarely have the problem of saying 'down in front!' since the slope is pretty steep. 503's not bad at all and you'll no doubt have chances to move down or closer to the 50yd line in time.

Yeah they are pretty high I'm in section 503 row 23. I'm excited, and suprise that my seats became available so quickly. I was expecting a 10 year wait and only had to wait 6.

I think i've sat in just about every section in the joint. In the fall you'll lose the sun on a hot Sunday, but in the winter you'll be cold in the shade. There isn't a bad seat in the house though. We used to party at the top of 502 and beat on the wall.

You were lucky to get in this year. Through the Orton years, they were burning through the line pretty quick, which is why it didn't take you so long. But I don't think many people got in this year.

Congratulations. ^5

welcome to the club

I am in 505 and couldn't be happier, row 21...the way they build these places anymore it's hard to get a real bad seat and I can at least see the whole field which I love

Well, here is a post from 2010 from one of our original Broncos' fans and I think you can know that this is pretty accurate for how high you are in 503, row 21:

Was just letting some of you Broncos fans know that I am right above your seats and even though my wayward son Josh McDaniels has been described as Satan, please don't lump me in with him and refrain from using my name in vain.

The seats are as good as any in the stadium. The view is a different story.

Seriously though, I was in 503 when I first got my season tickets. Mine were also high up but the view was decent.

I always sat in the 500's when traveling to games in Denver - last time I was in 517 and the view is great. I also like seeing the whole field like that - Once I saw a pre-season game in Milehigh about 20 rows from the field and didn't like it. Too close to see the plays and a bunch of stand up-sit down stuff - I'd rather be up high enough to see everything. I'm guessing the 300's are the best seats in the house (never been in those sections for a game)

If it were up to me, I'd stand all game. It's not nearly so steep in the SS though.

I've sat in the 300's before, back when we had to resort to tix from scalpers. The view was good. The crowd up there more than made up for the view though. :)

We had seats in 502 for years...we would raise some serious hell up there. Decent view, get to see all the plays develop, we were up at the top so we could stand up as well. Getting to the bathroom sucks, need to buy 3-4 beers at a time due the walk down.

I prefer getting to the game late and drinking Cristal now

The McDaniels' experiment opened up a LOT of season tickets over the last couple years, dropping the waiting list down to only five years or so, but at least temporarily that's changed. They claim about 98% renewal this year. If you figure there are about 24,000 season ticket accounts, that means at most about 500 people on the 23,000+ waiting list got tickets this year.

Assuming the team goes back to being an annual competitor, that's probably going to be the norm.

Also, for the first time in several years, all the club seats were sold. They were sold out within 24 hours of the Manning signing, based on what a friend that tried to get a couple was told.

I believe it. Last summer I was able to move down 7 rows in my section. This summer? Nothing.

05-26-2012, 10:43 PM
I wanted that side so I didn't have to deal with the sun. And so I was on the broncos sideline. This is actually going to be the first time I've even been to a game.

huh??
05-26-2012, 11:13 PM
Some decent binoculars are a good idea. I got my season tickets last year in 524 (two rows from the top). I took what I could afford. The first few games were pretty warm and we were able to assess where we would try to move when given the opportunity. This year, we got the chance to get about mid-pack in 516 and are looking forward to the seats. We'd rather be on the home side of the field, and figure dealing with the cold isn't usually going to be much of an issue.

Congratulations! It feels pretty good to be a season ticket holder.

There are quite a few access points that are very reasonable w/o being too time consuming. Even when the light rail gets crowded, it still seems more worthwhile than stadium parking.

There's a one-season "second chance" policy where you can potentially wait a year and then get in the next. I think you have to ask them though. Or maybe you did that last year.

quite a few lots for $10 nearby..so if head down with a full car (4) it ends up being cheaper and quicker than any of the public transportation options.

my number came up in 2009 after about a 10 year wait. I started out in sec 539, row 29.

in 2010, I was able to move to sec 539, row 10 - a pretty big improvement.

In 2011, moved to sec 501, row 3, on an isle. IMO, that was a big jump. I think that the best seats are the front row of the upper deck - no one in front of you, great view, not all that expensive. row 3 is pretty close to that and I'm pretty happy here.

I was not able to upgrade in 2012. I could have had a chance to move into a low in one of the south stand sections, but hesitated and they sold out pretty quickly. maybe next year.

so yeah - there wasn't nearly the upgrade chances this year that there has been in the past couple of years; I'm glad I got in when I did.

Yes light rail or buses like has been mentioned Bronco Rides
I like the bus because after the game you can get home easier and quicker unless you want to party with all the folks at the light rail station plus the buses are closer to the stadium.

RhymesayersDU
05-27-2012, 08:57 AM
You know, I don't know that the bus is any faster, to be honest. It is true that the buses are closer if you don't want to walk, but the with the buses 2 things:

1) You have to wait for the bus to fill up before it leaves, then you sit in the same traffic as everybody else. Then you get taken to the drop off point, then you go home. It can be kind of a process.
2) If I remember correctly, it's still like $8 a person. So if you have 4 people, it's still going to add up to basically a premium parking spot.

I guess it depends on what you're looking for. If it's purely economical, you can drive for cheaper. I park in a $10 lot every game, and I do have to walk a little bit of course, but it's easy in and pretty easy out. I sit in some traffic but not a ton.

Conversely, if you just plain do not want to deal with driving, then the bus is a good option. Light rail is there too, but as mentioned it can be kind of a pain in the ass when leaving.

See the attached screen shot from Google Maps. I circled the lot I park in most of the time. It's a bit of a walk, maybe 10 minutes, but I love the spot.

I generally show up 1-2 hours before kick off, I don't do any super early tailgates or anything. I can't speak to if the price goes up or not. It's always been $10 any time I've showed up. But for me personally I like the price and then I get out onto Auraria or Colfax and to Speer and get right home.

I don't think I've sat on the west side of the stadium.

My season tickets are Row 2 of section 536 (east side, near the 40 yard line), and I 've sat in the south stands and in section 115 (north side).

I wouldn't know, but having that sun in your face sure is nice in the winter. I always come out of the preseason sunburned, though.

I always took the light rail when I was at DU. The "Mile High" station for the light rail is still like a 30 minute walk though. It sucks.... now I just park in my dad's spot at Republic Plaza downtown and walk.

Thanks. Good to know. Probably the same price no matter what time. Might be a good spot for a guy coming up and driving

My dad and I park at Lincoln HS but instead of taking the Broncos' Ride from there (which is about $4.50 per person), we walk two blocks and take RTD bus #31 at Federal and Evans for about $2 per person.

For anyone staying in the 16th street area, while a little more expensive, this was very convenient. Last season there was a company called CoJitney, Colorado Jitney (I think I have that right), that was running shuttles from the downtown Marriott to Mile High. I think it was something in the $12-14 range per person, but am going by memory on this.

You set a reservation for the time you wanted to leave, which started about 3:00 or so before the game. They dropped off and picked up from a parking lot kind of W/NW from the stadium. I 'think' it was across the street from the C lot, but I might be wrong about it being C. It was in the parking lot of an office building, maybe like a urology office or something like that.

Since I was staying downtown, it made the trip there and back VERY painless.

so yeah - there wasn't nearly the upgrade chances this year that there has been in the past couple of years; I'm glad I got in when I did.

My name came up last year, after five years on the waiting list, and I opted to get two seats in the South Stands. They had my email address wrong, so I didn't get immediate notification, but had to wait for them to mail me the flyer saying my name had come up.

At that time, there were a number 10+ of options in the South stands for 2 or 4 seats. There were also a LOT of options in the 500 level, and not just in the last couple rows of each section.

This year, when it came time to upgrade, and I was hoping to move down as well as on or closer to an aisle, I was afraid there wouldn't be as much available as there was from the McDaniels years.

I was right. Early in the offseason, I had opted to add a third seat (since I now regret not just going with 4 seats) and I was told I should have no problem during the upgrade period to move to three seats together.

Since I was a new season ticket holder, my priority number had me in the very last group to get a chance to upgrade. I logged in immediately when my period opened and there wasn't a single seat open in the south stands, nor in the 300 level (non-club). I kept checking over the next 10 minutes or so, just in case something would open and even emailed the ticket office to see if they had inventory to get three seats together that I didn't see.

I was about to give up and all of a sudden 4 seats opened up in the south stands, three next to each other that were two seats off of an aisle and two rows lower than my current seats, so I quickly grabbed them.

I was leaving for the airport to leave the country on business, but I continued to check on the drive to the airport and while at the airport to see if anything else opened up, and nothing did. After getting to Europe, I continued to check, and there were ZERO seats in the south stands until about five days later when briefly two seats high up in 229 opened up for a few hours.

Bottom line, you never really know how much is marketing hype and how much is true about the renewal rates the Broncos tout, but clearly this year the renewal rate must have been very high. I consider myself real lucky to have my name come up when there were openings in the South Stands, since I prefer to be lower/closer to the field.

I upgraded my pair from 133 to 132 and moved down 2 rows. But when I looked in section 132, there were only 4 seats (2 pairs) to upgrade to. Thankfully, both pairs were close to my dad's set of 4. I was displaced from the south stands to the north stands when the Broncos moved into the new stadium. It's taken me 10 years to get my seats back close to my dad.

Last time we used the rail we took the line downtown to have a few more drinks instead of waiting the insane line. There was virtually no line waiting to go that way. Was a lot more fun to take in some brews and watch highlights than wait in line for an hour.

Not sure what keeps people from hopping the train downtown though and then just jumping the next train back.

I just walk downtown. I used to love going to Josephina's out on Larimer, but I think it's some crappy Starbucks or something like that now.

There's this place next to Paramount Cafe that is pretty legit.

I just dont like eating out in my hat/shorts/Broncos jersey. After living in Europe I've gained an appreciation for the art of dining. Anywhere other than fast food/casual dining should be, at a minimum, closed-toe shoes, non-frayed jeans and a collared shirt. I was eating with a client the other day at the Brown Palace, and a dude came in wearing sweats - at the freaking Brown Palace.

Sorry, lol...

Depends which direction the Broncos go from here. When I put my name on the list in early '06, I was expecting a 10-13 year wait and figured I would be in a position then to go to Denver for 4+ home games plus playoff games. When my name came up after 5 years, I was surprised and the timing wasn't great, but I couldn't pass and have my name go to the back of the line.

I just dont like eating out in my hat/shorts/Broncos jersey. After living in Europe I've gained an appreciation for the art of dining. Anywhere other than fast food/casual dining should be, at a minimum, closed-toe shoes, non-frayed jeans and a collared shirt. I was eating with a client the other day at the Brown Palace, and a dude came in wearing sweats - at the freaking Brown Palace.

Sorry, lol...

/rant.

After the Pitt game last year, we had a reservation at an Italian place, but didn't feel right going in with our jerseys and stuff. The guy running the shuttle said it was no problem, this was Denver, it was ok to go just about anywhere casual, any time, but especially after a Broncos game. We weren't convinced, so we hurried to the hotel, changed and went to the restaurant a little late and a couple tables had people wearing jeans and Broncos jerseys.

How long a walk is it from the stadium to downtown, 16th street area? Is it a safe walk?

About two mile from 16th street mall to Mile High along Colfax. Fastest is Colfax but might be a safer walk along the drive that borders Pepsi Center

Can't remember if Colfax has a walkway over I-25

my number came up in 2009 after about a 10 year wait. I started out in sec 539, row 29.

in 2010, I was able to move to sec 539, row 10 - a pretty big improvement.

In 2011, moved to sec 501, row 3, on an isle. IMO, that was a big jump. I think that the best seats are the front row of the upper deck - no one in front of you, great view, not all that expensive. row 3 is pretty close to that and I'm pretty happy here.

I was not able to upgrade in 2012. I could have had a chance to move into a low in one of the south stand sections, but hesitated and they sold out pretty quickly. maybe next year.

so yeah - there wasn't nearly the upgrade chances this year that there has been in the past couple of years; I'm glad I got in when I did.

I agree. I'm in the front row of the upper deck on the 40 yard line, and I don't think there are many better seats than that.

JUST GOT MY EMAIL!!! Been waiting for a loooong time.

Was thinking section 524 or 525 (NE corner of stadium) (can barely afford those).

I was thinking I really like that corner angle, and thought it might be nice to be in the sun.

But this thread has got me worried. Should I be looking at 517 or 518 (NW corner of stadium) instead?

I can't help you with the seat selection, but out of curiosity, when did you put your name on the season ticket wait list?

Went on the list in 2006. Got tickets last year. Section 505 Row 15 one seat from the aisle (that is often empty). Couldn't do any better this year.

One thing about the aisle that you want to be careful of. We are on the 20 yard line in the south end. When the LOS is on the other side of the field you have to look to your left and across the aisle to see the game. Farktards in the upper deck don't often realize that you should wait for breaks in the game before going up and down the stairs. Therefore, I am often looking at some fat lady's arse instead of the game on the field because I have to look across the aisle.

I wanted to get out of that situation this year, but nothing better opened up. I scored row 15 in my first year thanks to Kyle Orton and cannot upgrade thanks to Peyton Manning. I won't complain.

Took me over 10 years on the waiting list. I've had tickets for 4 years now. Probably would have been sooner but I needed four. We are in 526, Row 16...and I can't afford to move down now. To all of those who are asking/wondering about the distance and walk/ride times from various places...I say that the very best times that I've had at the old or new Mile High have been enjoying my fellow fans and occasionally rival fans at my own or another's tailgate. Stop by sometime...:wave:

A friend of mine who's a Steelers fan (I know) was at the playoff game. He somehow lucked out on Ticketmaster and got 100-level tickets in the North EZ believe it or not.

Anyway, he had to go to the bathroom at the end of regulation, so he ran thinking he'd be back in plenty of time for OT. Long story short, he missed the first (and last) play of OT.

Why wouldnt you just have your season seats scoot over 1 to be on the aisle? Is that one aisle seat a season ticket holder seat?

BTW, in 1994 I put myself on the list thinking it would be 15 years to get them. I got a call 9 months later and didnt want to pass up the opportunity. South Stands waaaay up there but have upgraded twice to middle of South Stands and around 12th row.

No idea, but the seat isn't available when I have the chance to upgrade.

Wouldn't want it anyway. I sat in it for about 15 minutes during one game last year and being directly on the aisle is definitely worse than being one seat away when people are going up and down. Besides, I get to put my stuff there.

133 row 31 i think. Moved 2 seasons ago. I talked to my old compadres there and they are pissed at me. Seems some guy all year long just stood up all game long and yelled "Teeeeeeebboooooooooow" for 4 quarters. Now I know it was you. :curtsey:

I use to have seats in Sec. 503 Row 13 and enjoyed those seats. It is a good view.

I was able to move down to the north end-zone last year, with the small renewal rate. This year when I tried to upgrade to get a lower row there was nothing to choose from. You could definitely see the difference in renewal rates from last year and this year.

I never thought about 4 tickets slowing down the waiting list. I was pretty shocked to see someone who signed in 2006 get in already. But maybe that's the difference?

You'd think they'd give the people signed up for 4 the option though if 2 were available.

I don't remember if it was in this thread or another (or on another forum), but someone was suggesting putting your name on the waiting list requesting one seat, because your name was more likely to come up sooner. Not sure if that's because they pick x number of people requesting 4, x number requesting 3, etc. or if it's because your name will come up to get the single seats.

The key to this was that when your name comes up, regardless of what you said when you put your name on the list (how many seats you wanted), you will be able to choose between 1-4 seats when you actually get them.

I've had my season tickets for 17 or 18 years now.

Sat in the the old south stands at Mile High and my current seats are still in the south stands.

I have no idea how my name was called so quickly on the season ticket waiting list.

I think I put my name on the list in February or March and got a call that same summer asking if I wanted tickets for the south stands.

That is where I wanted to sit most of all....so it felt like I hit the lottery, as I figured I would have to wait years to get a call.

Back then the season tickets cost me less than $500 for the entire year....a ticket in the south stands was under $25, if I remember correctly.

I think they doubled in price in 2001, when Invesco was opened.

Tickets in the south stands are now $73.00 each in my section....I think they are $1460.00 for the year. (EDIT: $80.00 each....$1600.00 for the year)

They have more than tripled in price in the last 17 or 18 years....back in the mid 90s, $20 some bucks for a ticket seems like one heck of a deal, especially considering the run the team was getting ready to go on.

Southstand is up to $80 a game, $800 for the year, after this offseasons price increase. They were $77/$770 last year.

It didn't matter this year, because there were no upgrades available, but I was debating moving from 236 to the 300 level corners (the first couple sections past the club seats) if they were available. My thinking was that the angle seems like a better view, and that some of the other things like the covered concourse if it's raining, more than just one bathroom (and things like that to keep the wife happy) might be better than the south stands.

In the end, it was moot, because there was nothing in the 300 level to move to, but for those familiar with the corners of the 200 level (228, 229, 235 and 236) and the 300 level (non club) corners (316, 317, 318, 328, 329 and 330), which do you think is a better view/better experience?

Yep....you're right....I looked at my email invoice and they were $1600 this year, which is $80 a ticket.

It seems like they creep up the price every other year or so.

My seats are in Section 232....one of the first few rows in the section.

I like them because they are almost in the middle of the field with a good view. I am literally a few steps from the bathroom and concessions, as I only have to take a few steps down, and a few more steps out to the restrooms and food/beer. Easy to get to and easy to get out and take a leak and get back to your seats.

My seats are in the club corner. Sec. 328. I like the seats I have a good view of the field and I was able to move down from the 5th level. Use to be in Sec. 503. So the difference for me was very noticeable. A bunch of the seats are under cover and that is nice, didn't have any bad weather last year though.

I moved down last season, like most people there were no upgrade opportunities for me this year.

The concourse area is pretty good, doesn't seem to over crowded but the bathrooms on the level are small and not many of them. For such a new stadium I would have thought they would have done better having big bathrooms and more of them.

I was on the waiting list for 7 years and got my season tickets in 2007. Like someone said earlier you get to choose the number of seats you want and I picked 4

Has anyone got there renewal invoice in the mail yet? I got my email notification that an invoice is on the way and they will be doing the same seat upgrade process online last previous years. But I don't know my priority number so just waiting on the hard copy invoice to come in the mail.

I am hoping to move down a couple rows but doubt that will happen.
