ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos are closing their training camp to fans this summer because of ongoing construction at team headquarters. Instead, they’ll have three open practices at their stadium.
The Broncos’ Dove Practice facilities are undergoing a $35 million face-lift that includes the installation of an indoor practice facility and renovations to the existing complex, a project that won’t be finished in time for training camp in July.READ MORE: Colorado Gets First Excessive Heat Warning On Record With Highs Set To Near 110 Degrees
