DENVER, CO — This Friday, the CU/CSU football game will be played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High which has Denver Public Works reminding drivers to have a game plan when it comes to parking. Be mindful and keep an eye on posted parking restrictions around the stadium. If you or guests are attending, please follow posted neighborhood parking restrictions.
On Street Parking
Denver Public Works Right of Way Enforcement Agents will enforce posted parking regulations in the area including surrounding neighborhoods during stadium events.
Posted signs in the stadium area restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 12:00PM to 9:00PM on Friday. Those vehicles that park without appropriate permits will be cited and towed to a temporary impound lot in Denver at 2000 W. 3rdAvenue.

Sports Authority Field at Mile High Parking
New this season, there will be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Anyone who would like to park in these lots will be asked to show proof of their handicap placard registration before they will be allowed to enter.
Off-Street Parking (parking lots)
Sports Authority Field at Mile High event attendees who choose to drive should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.
Choose only those parking lot 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.
When parking in a lot with the City & County of Denver sign posted, drivers can be assured that they will be parked legally and are not in danger of tickets, tows or being “parked in” (blocked or trapped in a space by other vehicles).
Use of public transportation to the game is encouraged. Sports Authority Field at Mile High is easily accessible by light rail or bus. Please check with RTD on schedules prior to planning your trip. Go to rtd-denver.com or call the RTD Telephone Information Center at 303-299-6000.
