Season ticket-holders will have first priority to purchase ticket bundles and single-game tickets.

The State of Colorado and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) have approved a plan that will allow the Denver Broncos to host about 5,700 fans for the team's six remaining home games at Empower Field at Mile High. The decision extends previously approved capacity guidelines that were put in place to allow a limited number of fans to attend the game between the Broncos and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 27.

Team officials said they will continue to monitor the situation and make necessary adjustments to fan attendance and capacity limits based on recommendations of public health officials. In the event seating capacity can be increased, the team will offer first priority to season ticket-holders.

The Broncos' next scheduled home game is October 18 against the Miami Dolphins. Season ticket-holders will have the opportunity to purchase six-game, regular-season ticket packages weighted by priority number. The team will also reserve a ticket inventory for single game presale that is set for October 13.

Seating will be limited to the 100 level, the 300 level, United Clubs, and suites/premium areas. 

Safety guidelines that were implemented for the September 27 game will remain in effect, the team said. Those include:

  • Seats will be sold in pods of two or four tickets, and fans will be required to attend with known family and friends. 
  • Sections are separated into smaller groups with designated entry, concession, and restroom areas to limit exposure among fans. Each section will be limited to 175 people in accordance with Colorado's outdoor event guidance.
  • Face coverings are required at all times, unless eating or drinking. Fans who fail to comply will be asked to leave the stadium. 
  • No tailgating will be allowed.
  • Congregating inside concourses, parking lots, and the stadium bowl is prohibited.

In addition, the stadium has made upgrades to help protect fans, including eliminating cash transactions by facilitating mobile payments for parking and concessions; installing reverse ATMs for fans who bring cash; installing touchless restroom features, including toilets, sinks and paper towel dispensers; improving air purification systems; installing UV-C lights to reduce or eliminate bacteria on widely used handrails; adding more than 500 hand sanitizer stations throughout the venue; and regularly disinfecting high-touch surfaces. All stadium staff will be required to complete a health screen prior to beginning their shift.
