SEATTLE — Hundreds of die-hard Broncos fans are in Seattle ready to cheer on their team. Many of them gathered near the Space Needle ahead of Monday's game to show their love for Broncos Country.

Some of the fans live in Seattle but their heart belongs in Colorado.

“This is a community that a lot just grew up Broncos fans. There’s a lot of people that are from Denver,” said David Johnson, one of the founders of the Denver Broncos Fans of Seattle.

“It just grew and grew and grew, we kept outgrowing different bars and meetups," added Ian Iddings, a member of the group who moved from Aurora to Seattle 13 years ago.

Miles the Mascot even made an appearance.

The Broncos kick off the 2022 NFL season on Monday Night Football against the Seahawks Monday, as Russell Wilson returns to Seattle in a highly-anticipated matchup that will air on Denver7.

“We’re excited. I think its going to be a cool atmosphere. I have no idea how they’re going to react to Russel Wilson out there, so interesting to see that," said Helen Artz, a fan from Lakewood who traveled to Seattle for the game. "Honestly, I think we’re a stronger team with him on it, and I'm looking forward to them showing that on Monday Night Football."
