Coors Field History
When it became known that Major League Baseball was looking to expand its National League by
two teams, Denver was one of many cities vying to welcome a new baseball organization. Denver voters helped seal the deal
with money for a new stadium and Coors Field broke ground in 1991. The Colorado Rockies began their existence at Mile High
Stadium, home to the cross town Denver Broncos, while their new, state of the art stadium was being completed. Originally
designed to house 43,000 fans at capacity, Coors Field was expanded to seat 50,000 fans mid-build when it was clear by the
numbers of fans at Mile High Stadium that the Denver Area fans were ready to pack their new home. Since its opening, Coors
Field has quickly become a fan favorite with picturesque views of the Rocky Mountains and all of the in-stadium amenities
you could ever need.
