America’s top sports city boasts seven
major sports teams and three state-of-the-art
stadiums. Denver’s spectator sports include
hockey (Colorado Avalanche); lacrosse
(Colorado Mammoth and Denver
Outlaws); soccer (Colorado Rapids);
baseball (Colorado Rockies); football
(Denver Broncos); and basketball (Denver
Nuggets). Don’t watch the game on TV
when you go cheer on your team in person!
Sports fans have countless opportunities
year-round to watch their favorite teams.
From football and baseball to basketball,
hockey, and soccer games, 6 million
Denverites cheer on their teams each year.
In 1991, the Metro Denver Sports
Commission was formed to attract the
world’s top sporting events to the city.
Thanks in part to the commission’s
work, Denver has hosted several major
sporting events, including the 2007
NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Western
Regional Tournament and the 2008
NCAA Frozen Four Hockey
Tournament. You won’t get bored with
these many teams to root on. The
following listings provide information
about sports venues and teams in the
metro Denver area.
Denver’s numerous sports venues are
primarily located in or near downtown,
and are credited with contributing to the
revitalization of lower downtown.
