Best Local Public Sports Facility 2014

Albertsons Stadium

Readers' Picks

Obviously we love our Broncos very much (see: Best Sports Team), but how much do you really know about the blue turf on which they play? Here are some fun facts to tide you over until the next kickoff. The stadium first opened in 1970, originally playing the role of a track and field facility as well. It didn't get its signature blue turf installed until 1986, and became the first non-green playing surface in football history. Today it seats more than 36,000 people. In May, Albertsons LLC committed $12.5 million over the next 15 years for the naming rights to the stadium.
