Sports Authority Field at Mile High Parking

Off-Street Parking (parking lots) 

Sports Authority Field at Mile High special event attendees who choose to drive should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

If you are not parking in one of the parking lots on Sports Authority Field at Mile High property, choose only those locations that 1) display a special event parking sign issued by the City & County of Denver, or 2) are existing approved parking lots clearly managed by reputable companies.

The signs display the seal of the City & County of Denver and include the address of the parking location. These signs were issued because of the proliferation of illegal parking lots taking drivers’ money, only to have the drivers return to their vehicles to find it ticketed and/or towed.
