History

The Denver Broncos are members of the American Football Conference in the NFL. The franchise came into existence in 1960 as a charter member of the upstart American Football League. Bob Howsam who had owned the Denver Bears of the Continental Baseball League, which was to be a third major league, founded the Broncos. The Continental League folded in 1959 and left Howsam with a stadium in Denver but no team to play in it. So, he decided to form the Denver Broncos, who began playing in 1960 in the AFL. The Broncos struggled during the 1960’s and were the only club to never appear in the AFL Championship game.

During the 1970’s, the franchise moved from the old Bears Stadium into Mile High Stadium. This move was due to the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. The NFL required its teams to play in stadiums which have capacities of at least 50,000 for football games. The new stadium was funded by the city and by donations -- the team’s players went door to door in Colorado and surrounding states fundraising for the stadium project. 

In 1977, the Broncos appeared in the first of their seven Super Bowls, losing the game to the Dallas Cowboys. However, this was the beginning of four decades of consistent winning for the Broncos, which few other teams have matched. It was also during this era that the famous nickname “Orange Crush” emerged, referring to the Broncos team colors and their crushing defensive style of play.

During the 1980’s, the franchise won three FC titles led by quarterback John Elway. Elway holds many NFL records and is regarded as one of the top QBs of all time. Though the franchise failed to win a Super Bowl during the 1980’s, they would win two consecutive titles in 1997 and 1998. At this time, running back Terrell Davis was one of the NFL’s top rushers. In the ’97 Super Bowl, Davis overcame a migraine headache and rushed for 157 yards while scoring three touchdowns. The following season, he became just the fourth player in NFL history to gain 2,000 rushing yards in a single regular season. 

The 1998 season was John Elway’s last in the NFL and the Broncos successfully defended their Super Bowl title that year. The club would not make it back to the Super Bowl until 2014. This time it was Payton Manning as QB who the Broncos acquired from the Colts the previous season. Manning dominated the regular season breaking the record for touchdown passes and winning the MVP.  However, the Broncos suffered a crushing loss to the Seattle Sea Hawks in the Super Bowl.

In 2011, the Broncos began playing their home games at Invesco at Mile High. The stadium was funded mainly through the city of Denver and has the same capacity of the original Mile High Stadium.
