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.
