Empower Field at Mile High opened in 2001 to replace the old Mile High Stadium. The stadium has had several names over the years. When it first replaced Mile High Stadium in 2001, it was called Invesco Field at Mile High. It was then known as Sports Authority Field at Mile High from 2011 to 2018 and then briefly as Broncos Stadium at Mile High before being renamed Empower Field at Mile High in 2019.

Denver Broncos Tickets

The Denver Broncos sell their tickets via Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket outlet for the NFL.

For most teams, Ticketmaster sells tickets on behalf of the team and resells tickets on behalf of ticket sellers. You can tell the difference on the site as the Blue dots are tickets from the team themselves, and the pink dots are from verified sellers.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown may have further selling platform fees added, so take time to read my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the team’s Mobile App to your phone as it contains much Gameday information for the stadium.
