SOMETHING f o r
EVERY SPORTS FAN
Why watch a game on television
when you can see it live in America’s top
sports city that boasts seven major sports
teams and three state-of-the-art stadiums?
With spectator sports that include hockey
(Colorado Avalanche); lacrosse (Colorado
Mammoth and Denver Outlaws); soccer
(Colorado Rapids); baseball (Colorado
Rockies); football (Denver Broncos); and
basketball (Denver Nuggets), finding
something to do is easy.
From football and baseball to lacrosse,
soccer, hockey, and auto racing, the
metro Denver area offers sports fans
countless opportunities throughout the
year to watch their favorite professional or
collegiate team. In fact, more than 6
million fans attend sporting events each
year in the metro area.
The Metro Denver Sports Commission
was formed in 1991 to attract the world’s
top sporting events to metro Denver.
Thanks to commission efforts, Denver has
hosted such events as the 2007 NCAA
Men’s Ice Hockey Western Regional
Tournament and the 2008 NCAA Frozen
Four Hockey Tournament. From professional to college, Denver has it all.
