This has been a training camp full of shattered practice attendance records for the Denver Broncos. Today’s stadium scrimmage is no different.
The previous record of 20,782 attendees, set on August 7, 2010, is expected to be broken with ease as some reports suggest as many as 15,000 to 20,000 fans were already lined up outside the stadium an hour before the scrimmage began. Gates opened 40 minutes early to meet the demand.
The scrimmage begins at 3:50.
UPDATE: As of 3:30 p.m., the attendance total was over 29,700. We’ll update this post once a final attendance count is announced.
UPDATE: Final count? 41,304. 97% more than the previous record set in 2010.
PARKING LOTS FULL
The stadium parking lots are full, and the I-25 Colfax exit is jammed. If you are approaching the scrimmage from the south, take I-25 to Speer and park at the Pepsi Center. If approaching from the north, take I-25 to Auraria and park at Auraria Campus, the Broncos suggest. RTD Light Rail is also offering an increased level of operation for the event.
