The new turf field is expected to be complete at Aurora Central this fall.

Krueger continued,
"We truly realize the positive impact that this will have on our community, the students at Aurora Central, and the many programs that will utilize the football field. We are incredibly thankful to the Denver Broncos and the NFL Foundation for their continued support of our schools and our community."The new turf may either be completely rebuilt or significantly renovated, with improvements including irrigation systems, lights, bleachers, goal posts, scoreboards, and turf. Since 1998, the NFL Foundation and LISC Grassroots Program has granted $46 million to 336 projects across the nation. Thank you, Denver Broncos, for supporting our local schools and communities!
