The neighborhoods around the stadium have strict “no parking” policies enforced, so you’ll need a place to park. The lots closest to the stadium are usually reserved for season ticket holders, though there are a limited number of first-come, first-served non-reserved cash spots. OrangeForceOne parks in the RV side of lot C (The “Tailgating Lot”) to the South of the stadium. There is also parking East of I-25 and the Platte River at Ocean Journey, Auraria Campus, Pepsi Center & Six Flags.
RTD offers several inexpensive alternatives to get to the game. The Broncos Ride costs $8 round trip, and has more than 27 park-n-ride pick up locations. There is also the Light Rail C-Line, which stops at the stadium. More details about each of these systems can be found at http://www.rtd-denver.com
Tailgating at the stadium is what we’re trying to bring back, as a way to pump the spirit up before heading into the stadium. There are many activities to check out. The lots open around 8 am for afternoon games & noon for evening games. Keep in mind – if you want to drink, there is no liquor sold on Sundays in the state of Colorado (without special license, such as at bars & sporting events) so buy your beer & such on Saturday!
• OrangeForceOne – located in Lot C, RV spot #31, just south of the stadium. From there you can check out the previous week’s winners of the MVT (Most Valuable Tailgater) award, the Barrelman & Hatman Jay’s tailgate, and many other groups.
• The Bronco Barn – for $5, you can go into the “tent” set up to the east of the Player’s lot. They have big screen tvs to watch the early games, visits/autographs from cheerleaders & Broncos Alumnae, Miles the mascot, and radio personalities. There is usually a band playing as well.
• There are usually various vendors set up along the “Walk of Fame” around the south/west sides of the stadium, with contests, giveaways and activities for families.
• You can tailgate too – whether it’s you and your family or a group of your friends, there are many places to park your car or truck & pull out your grill. There are dumping places available for hot coals when you’re getting ready to go to the game, and port-a-potties throughout the lots. Price for parking ranges, starting at $30 a spot.
Alumnae and cheerleaders are available for autographs in the Broncos Barn before the game. To get autographs of current players, the best bet is to stand at the tunnel that leads to the players lot before and after the game. All the players pass through there and many will stop to sign things or pose for pictures with you. It is located to the South side of the stadium, just west of the Broncos Stadium Store.
