Broncos’ headquarters will play host to Colorado State football’s second scrimmage of the spring. The Rams will take the field at the Denver Broncos’ Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre at Dove Valley at 10 a.m. Saturday.

“This is an excellent opportunity for us to bring our team to a first-class NFL facility and interact with our great fans in the Denver area,” CSU head coach Mike Bobo said. “We’re very grateful that Joe Ellis, John Elway, Gary Kubiak and the Denver Broncos organization have made this opportunity available to us.”


The scrimmage will be open to CSU season-ticket holders and Ram Club members (renewed prior to March 31).

It continues a partnership between CSU and the Denver Broncos Football Club that already includes the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown being played at Sports Authority Field. The Denver Broncos Sports Management Institute was also launched at CSU in December 2014.

“We are very excited to host Colorado State’s spring scrimmage at our recently upgraded training facility,” Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis said. “The scrimmage also will give us a chance to review the logistics of hosting a public practice following our facility upgrades as we prepare to welcome back fans for 2015 training camp.”

CSU began spring practices on March 10 at its on-campus practice fields. Spring drills conclude with the annual Green and Gold Spring Game, which is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 18.
