Despite being located in a city that can be prone to some fairly serious weather from time to time, the Denver Broncos do not have a functional indoor facility at their headquarters to utilize in inclement weather conditions.

However, it appears as though the franchise is exploring options to end that problem.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos have talked about building a new indoor practice facility for the team.

“We’ve had several discussions about building an indoor facility and are giving it strong consideration,” Broncos president Joe Ellis said. “While nothing is finalized, we certainly understand how important it is for our team to have an indoor facility at some point in the very near future.”

When weather has become a hindrance to being able to practice, the Broncos have been forced to bus to an indoor location a few miles from team headquarters that is generally used for soccer. That facility isn’t even big enough to house a regulation football field. The Broncos were forced to practice there on Wednesday as wintry conditions forced them to take practice indoors.

According to Klis, the team has not had an indoor practice field since 2003 when their inflatable bubble blew away during a windstorm in training camp.
