The demise of Sports Authority has reignited a fight in Colorado over the future of the Denver Broncos’ stadium, a place long tied to the city’s identity. Sports Authority hopes to sell off its naming rights to the stadium, but the Broncos and officials appointed to run the taxpayer-built stadium are fighting that in bankruptcy court.
