“DOERS” Save the Stadium

In March of 1967, the Denver Broncos faced a crisis when Metropolitan Denver voters turned down a bond issue to construct a new stadium for the team. Local fans came to the rescue, immediately organizing a non-profit group called the “DOERS” as a fundraising drive to improve the Bears Stadium and keep the Broncos in Denver.

The group raised $1.8 million to purchase Bears Stadium from its private owners, and presented the deed to the city.
