Just over a year after officially taking over as owner of the Denver Broncos, Rob Walton has made his first serious investment in his team’s home stadium.

The Broncos unveiled $100 million worth of upgrades to Empower Field at Mile High ahead of their final preseason game. Team officials said the renovations, completed this offseason, were some of the most extensive in the stadium’s history.

“As we look toward the future with the long-term plans for our stadium, we are equally focused on the present to ensure Empower Field at Mile High remains a premier sports and entertainment venue,” said Broncos president Damani Leech.

The crown jewel of the project is a 72-foot tall, 225-foot wide video board looming over the south end zone. Additionally, there are 11 new LED boards throughout the stadium. The stadium also improved its elevators, added WiFi service, and made changes to the team store and premium hospitality areas.

Concessions also got a boost: There are new food items on offer, and 12 local restaurants have a presence in the concourses. There will also be several “autonomous markets” to buy food and drink throughout the stadium.

New Venue Debate

The multimillion-dollar improvements should satisfy fans as the team’s new owners debate whether or not to construct a new stadium. Besides Walton, other parties in the ownership group include former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.
