Being a part of the Denver Broncos organization has always been much larger than just being an employee. You join a tight-knit family and work for the classiest owner in all of sports.
As Mike Klis of 9 News first reported, the Broncos will be picking up the tab to send all of their employees, including interns and several part-timers, to Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
In total, the Broncos will descend on Santa Clara with a contingency of over 300 people.
The Denver Broncos now embody what Pat Bowlen stood for as an organization, even if he remains sidelined as a result of Alzheimer’s since July of 2014. He will continue to be represented at the game on Feb. 7 by his wife Annabel, his seven children and other Bowlen family members.
Bowlen’s values have been carried on by CEO, President, and longtime friend, Joe Ellis.
Broncos employees involved with the game, including the likes of John Elway, the coaching staff, and players, will fly out Sunday for Super Bowl week. The team is scheduled to arrive at San Jose Airport at 3:30 p.m. MST.
Business people will begin arriving Thursday of next week. Employees will be provided with transportation, hotel accommodations and tickets to the game.
For the Broncos, this will be their 8th Super Bowl appearance, including seven under Pat Bowlen, which stands as the most appearances by a single owner in the NFL.
As Klis put it:
“Bowlen believed success is better enjoyed when shared.”
For myself and for Broncos Country I can say we would all like to see John Elway after a Super Bowl victory saying “this one’s for Pat.”
