The Denver Broncos recently partnered with Millennium Sports Technologies and Sports Contracting Group to undertake a major turf renovation at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. The upgrade will occur during the offseason, and the field has already been removed to make way for new grass. Just in time for the preseason, the renovation should be completed in early April. The first game scheduled to be played on the new field is a home opener match in early May with the Denver Outlaws playing the Charlotte Hounds.
The former turf at Sports Authority Field, installed when the stadium opened in 2001, consisted of a synthetic blend. The new playing surface will be 100 percent Kentucky bluegrass sod grown by a turf farm in Fort Morgan, Colorado. This renovation will benefit not only the Denver Broncos, but also a number of college and high school football teams that play at the stadium as well.
