Broncos to visit the White House to honor Super Bowl 50 victory


ENGLEWOOD, Colo.** — The Denver Broncos will travel to the White House on Monday, June 6, to be recognized for their Super Bowl 50 victory.

President Barack Obama will welcome players, coaches and staff to honor the Broncos' third world championship.

"This visit will continue the tradition begun by President Obama of honoring sports teams for their efforts to give back to their communities," the White House said in a press release.

In all, close to 100 members of the Broncos organization will be present in D.C. for next week's ceremony.

Former quarterback Peyton Manning will make the trip to the White House, as will other contributors to the Super Bowl 50 team who are no longer in Denver.

The Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers, 24-10, in February in Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, California.
