ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Thousands of fans made their way to the UCHealth Training Center for the first day of Broncos training camp on Thursday.
“I can’t think of a better way to spend our day,” fan Jesselyn Sutter said.
Camp rookies, long time vets and everyone in between were out in full force too see their favorite team take the field.
“It was everything I thought it would be,” Dana Chamber said.
He drove 10 hours from Missouri for the first day of camp.
In order to really enjoy what goes on, fans have to come prepared.
“If the parking lot opens at 7, try to get here at 6:30 so you’re in line quick,” Chamber said.
Make sure to arrive early because the lines get long quickly. The regular game rules apply: No outside food, alcohol, or glass containers.
“Bring a blanket; those fields are a little wet,” Sutter said.
Fans say it pays to bring a blanket, water bottle, sunscreen and sunglasses.
Lastly, don’t forget the autograph essentials.
“Your pen and your Broncos gear,” fan Brayden Agasa said.
One camp no-no: Never wear gear from another team.
Camp starts at 9:30 a.m. each day. The parking lot opens at 7 a.m. and gates at 8 a.m.
