Sports Authority Field at Mile High, home of the Denver Broncos, will have a new and improved feel and look for the start of the 2013 season as the stadium has been under construction this offseason while crews work to add a number of improvements.

The most notable improvement is a new Daktronics high-definition LED video board above the south end zone that is three times bigger than the current Thundervision screen.

The Broncos posted a number of pictures on Broncos.com showing the offseason improvements.

The entire third-level facade will have LED ribbon videos boards, and the original analog television sets throughout the concourses will be upgraded to flat screens.

The overall sound system used in the stadium will be replaced, including the 12-year-old technology and original seating bowl speakers.

“We take great pride in providing the best possible gameday experience for our fans,” Broncos Senior Vice President of Business Development Mac Freeman said. “As technology continues to evolve, we want to ensure Sports Authority Field at Mile High incorporates the latest advancements in order to remain a state-of-the-art facility.”
