As the Broncos make their final preparations for their much-anticipated season opener against the Ravens, it’s a perfect time for fans to have their own pregame walkthrough before heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High for the big game.
Here’s a look at some last minute considerations before the Broncos and Ravens kick off at 6:30 MST.
Public transportation is available in the form of Broncos Ride shuttles – running from Park-n-Ride Lots to the stadium started two and a half hours prior to kickoff — and both the Sports Authority Field at Mile High and Decatur-Federal light rail stations which provide service to the stadium.
The stadium can also be accessed by the South Platt Trail of the Denver bike trail system if you choose to bike to the game.
For those driving to the game, early tailgating spaces will open at noon and all stadium parking lots open 1:30 PM. Mountain Village, which is free to all fans with a ticket, opens at 2:30.
All stadium gates will be opened at 4:00 PM but United Club and suite ticket holders may enter Gate #2 or Gate #7 starting at 3:30 PM.
Fans are advised to get to their seats no later than 6:15 p.m. MST so that they may partake in the pregame ceremonies.
Remember that the new bag policy will be in effect for Thursday’s game. This means that fans are only permitted to bring clear plastic bags into the stadium. Either the 12” by 6” by 12” bag with a logo on the front or a standard one gallon disposal. Fans may also bring a small clutch about the size of a hand.
Fans may still bring all items they would normally bring to a game with the exception of seat cushions, however seat cushions without concealable areas are still permitted. The new policy is designed to both keep the in-stadium experience safer and make entrance into the stadium quicker.

As always, fans are reminded to respect each other and respect the game. To anonymously report an issue to security text “RESPECT” and your message to 78247 or call the Stadium Hotline at 720-258-3850.
