*ENGLEWOOD, Colo. *— The Denver Broncos and their newest partner, UCHealth, are teaming up to encourage and improve the health of fans throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
As part of the long-term partnership agreement, the Broncos will name their practice facility in Englewood the "UCHealth Training Center."
"We are very excited to team with UCHealth in this very important partnership," Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis said. "We are all committed to helping communities in Colorado, and through this relationship we’ll encourage fans to be active and focus on their health."
