The Denver Broncos have some of the loudest and most diehard fans in all of the NFL which can be proven by the fact the Broncos have sold out every home game since 1970. When you enter Mile High, the first thing you’ll notice is a sea of orange and navy as all the fans come to the game decked out in Broncos gear. Once the game starts, you’ll hear the roar of the Broncos fans as they cheer on the team to victory.
The South End Zone is home to the most passionate fans at Empower Field at Mile High. This tradition dates back to the original Mile High Stadium where the visiting team’s locker room was located right in the South End Zone stands. The most raucous fans would sit in the South End Zone stands to strike fear into the opposing team before they even took the field.
Broncos fans are very passionate and loud when it comes to cheering on their Broncos, however, don’t be afraid to attend a Broncos game as a fan of a visiting team. The fans at Mile High are pretty well behaved and at worst you’ll receive some good-natured ribbing as long as you act respectfully. A visit to Mile High should be on the list of any die-hard NFL fan as you’ll struggle to find a better experience almost anywhere else.
