The grounds on which 5x NFL MVP, Peyton Manning trained himself to become the player that he was will no longer be there. The Denver Broncos ownership is all set to build a new facility for its team. They had already started the process of designing a new facility a year ago, as reported to Leech. To gain inspiration for the new facility, they had toured the training grounds of several sports teams, such as the Chicago Bears, Golden State Warriors, Las Vegas Raiders, and the Miami Dolphins.

After a poor 3-5 record mid-way through the season, the Broncos are coming out of a bye week. They have had plenty of time to replenish and build up their strength for their upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills. For the time being, till the new facility is built, you can still spot the team practicing at the existing Centura Health Training Center site in Englewood, Colorado.

Fans will also be able to watch their players sweat it out during practice. A new berm has been planned on the east side of the campus for this. For events, a new open-air mezzanine will also be constructed. But will all these new construction processes affect the Broncos’ day-to-day operations? According to the Broncos’ official website, the new constructions will not affect normal proceedings and they will continue to host fans. Hopefully, a new facility will also rekindle the Broncos’ fire and help them overturn their performance so far this season.
