DENVER – For the first time in the 36 seasons of ABC's Monday Night Football, the network will showcase fans in the home stadium to open the game broadcast. Fans attending the Denver Broncos' game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Sept. 26, will open the broadcast for viewers in the United States, Canada, U.S. Armed Forces and 135 other countries around the world.
The Broncos are urging fans to be in their seats by 6:30 p.m. to prepare for the open. All fans will have an orange pom-pom in their seat, and fans seated in the lower level of the east side will be performing a card stunt showcasing the Broncos logo. Fans will rehearse making "Rocky Mountain Thunder" by stomping their feet on the stadium risers, an orange pom-pom wave and the card stunt before doing it live.
There will be fireworks and a video montage of Denver Broncos mascot Thunder running through the city and approaching the stadium. Thunder then will enter the stadium with a large flag that reads "Are You Ready." A "mystery guest" will lead the crowd in a chant right before the Broncos take the field.
Fans attending the game are encouraged to arrive early and be loud for this historic broadcast event to show everyone watching on television that Denver has the number one sports fans in the country.
