Broncos owner Greg Penner excited for ‘terrific’ new training facility

Last fall, the Denver Broncos announced $175 million plans for a new, state-of-the-art practice facility at their Dove Valley headquarters.

The team will begin construction this spring and the project aims to be completed by 2026. Once the new facility is finished, the old building will be removed and replaced with a berm for fans to watch training camp.

One of the biggest motivations for building the new facility was getting all of the team’s employees under one roof at their Centura Health Training Center. Players will also now have shorter distances to go from the locker room to the indoor practice facility.

Our building right now is actually great,” team owner/CEO Greg Penner said during an end-of-season press conference on Jan. 9. “The challenge is as it gets older, we kept putting more and more money in it to keep it up to the standard that it needed to be at. It has also gotten small, and it’s very difficult to expand. We really wanted to have an opportunity to bring more of our business folks down from the stadium, get people in one building, and then have a building that’s really player-focused and central.

“It’s all about the players. Instead of having the main building, the strength and conditioning area and the practice facility, we’ll pull it all together. The spaces are going to be terrific. We think it’ll raise the expectations for the players and the organization.”

Here is a rendering of what the new facility will look like, provided by the team. The team plans to put in temporary bleachers so fans can attend training camp practices in 2024 and 2025 while the site is under construction.

Last year, the Broncos announced their training camp schedule in June.
