Broncos won’t have fans watching training camp

With the Broncos in the midst of a renovation of their team headquarters, fans are going to be shut out of training camp.

Because construction of the new indoor facility won’t be complete, there won’t be room to park cars or safely seat fans. They’re giving fans three chances to see them, with practices at Sports Authority Field, with free parking and admission.

“Obviously it’s disappointing that we’re unable to host our fans at the training facility during camp this year due to all the construction,” team spokesman¬†Patrick Smyth¬†told Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “Unfortunately, there are a number of safety and logistical issues that led to the change for this year only.”

The Broncos averaged more than 2,800 fans per practice during training camp the last two years, so it’s feasible that they could actually outdraw with three workouts in their home stadium.

But it will take away some of the atmosphere and the ability for fans to get close to the team in a more casual atmosphere.

    Maybe they can just show a replay of the Super Bowl on the big screen… Oh wait…

    I hope they open it back up after the construction is done, but don’t be surprised if the team decides that it is best to always have closed training camp with only a few that are open to the public.

    Denver fans will get plenty of atmosphere during Super Bowl XLIX when they kick the butts of whoever the NFC sends up and down the field all night.

    What are you complaining about? Denver gave it’s fans an extra pre-season game to watch this year already…..back in Feb.

    I know. Put it on TV and charge for it. And have Soloman Wilcots do the color.

    What the Seahawks did to the Broncos was surgical, they methodically and systematically disemboweled Broncos, they terrorized the Broncos… In front of the worlds biggest stage, so of coarse I expect the Broncos to put themselves back together in private…Indeed…

    Seahawks are a really good team and they kicked our butts in the Superbowl, not taking away anything from their accomplishments.
    But keep it in perspective, we did not show up that day in ANY phase of the game and imploded. That day a high school team could have probably beaten us.
