DENVER — The Denver Broncos will celebrate the NFL’s 100th season with a ‘Fantennial Weekend’ culminating in a recognition of Owner Pat Bowlen and cornerback Champ Bailey’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Sunday, Oct. 13 (vs. Tennessee, 2:25 p.m. MDT kickoff).

As part of the Fantennial celebration, Broncos fans will have the opportunity to help select the Broncos Top 100 Team through online voting and are encouraged to use #Broncos100.

Voting is now open by visiting denverbroncos.com/broncos100.

Fan voting will run through the month of May, and the Top 100 team will be announced in mid-June. Broncos alumni as well as Team Historian Jim Saccomano and Senior Digital Reporter Andrew Mason will also help pick the Broncos Top 100 Team.

Entering their 60th season in 2019, the Broncos have honored players and individuals throughout their history. The Broncos Ring of Fame was founded in 1984 by Mr. Bowlen and the Broncos 50th Anniversary Team was voted on by fans in 2009.

Select members of the Broncos Top 100 Team will participate in fan-facing events (Oct. 11-13) and be recognized on-field during the game against the Titans.

Pro Football Hall of Fame President & CEO David Baker will be at Broncos Stadium at Mile High to present Hall of Fame Rings of Excellence by Kay Jewelers to Bailey and members of the Bowlen family on behalf of Owner Pat Bowlen. Timing of the ceremonies will be announced at a later date.

More details about the Broncos’ ‘Fantennial Weekend,’ which includes a local high school football component, will also be announced at a later date.

The Broncos and United Way announced in April that they will be hosting the Denver Day of Service throughout the metro area on Friday, June 7. The Denver Day of Service is part of the Broncos’ Huddle for 100, a league-wide initiative that encourages fans to volunteer for at least 100 minutes during the celebration of the NFL’s 100th season.

More than 20 organizations have committed to hosting projects, and volunteers can sign up by visiting: https://volunteer.unitedwaydenver.org/event/104732-Denver-Day-of-Service.
