Sports Authority is racing to post its name around the home of the Denver Broncos after winning the naming rights for the stadium.

The Colorado-based retailer began working Wednesday to take down the old Invesco Field signs at what will now be known as Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Stadium officials voted unanimously Tuesday to let Sports Authority take over the naming rights from Invesco, a mutual fund company.

The company is taking over the last 10 years of Invesco's $120 million contract. It will pay the roughly $32 million still owed under the deal.

Sports Authority also plans to provide video booths where fans can record messages to players and invite high school teams to hang their helmets inside the stadium.

    I moved and lived in this area for almost 25 years knowing the stadium as Mile High. It will always be Mile High

    How about asking the taxpayers what to name it since they have provided nearly all the revenue to build the stadium? No matter who "buys the naming rights", it will always be known as "Mile High Stadium". Period.

    Why couldn't we have just named it Mile High Stadium like it has been known for for years. Why is it that owners of large buildings and complexes have to have their names showing, it's not like we don't know who owns them.

    @Um ok: Interesting that you say that as every Denver Broncos home game continues to sell out.
