DENVER (AP) - The Broncos are planning to build a miniature version of the old Mile High in the parking lot of Sports Authority Field to bolster the stadium’s special events program.

The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/xxObUx ) the 11-foot-tall Mile High Monument will be a one-eighth replica of Mile High Stadium, where the Broncos played from 1960 to 2000. The mini stadium will have 176 original seats surrounding a 1,250-square-foot padded AstroTurf field.

Planners say the venue could host up to 300 people.

Mac Freeman, the Broncos’ head of business development, says the monument will “celebrate where the Mile High magic was born.”

The team hopes to begin construction in April, pending city approval. Planners hope to have the project completed by August, in time for the Broncos’ first pre-season home game.
