Broncos ready to spend in order to improve facilities.
Having already improved the team roster, the Denver Broncos have revealed they will also upgrade their stadium and training complex this off season, according to NFL.com.
The Broncos have spent $55m in free agency with plans to sign further reinforcements, but Denver Team President Joe Ellis has revealed he started planning upgrades two years ago after the new 10-year collective bargaining agreement was signed, which gave clubs a clearer picture of future revenue streams.
Ellis revealed that $35m would be spent on renovating the Sports Authority Field, including new high-definition scoreboards, a thousand flat-screen TVs and a refurbished concourse.
In addition, the franchise will replace the 22-year-old heating system beneath the grass football fields at their training headquarters, while Ellis is hopeful of potentially building indoor facilities in the future.
The work doesn’t stop there either, with plans to improve the wireless network at the stadium to cater for the growing social media presence within the crowds, and it is all part of enhancing the stadium experience with the danger of attendances dwindling with supporters opting to watch games at home.
However, the Broncos shouldn’t experience any problems in that department, considering the roster that they have constructed around Peyton Manning.
Denver will want to improve on last season’s achievements, and appear to be putting things in place for the facilities to be as beneficial as possible to both the players and the fans.
With the loss to the Baltimore Ravens still in the back of their minds, it all points toward a successful season next year.
