Come Super Bowl Sunday, the offices of both the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers will be empty.

Both team owners are sending their team's employees -- interns included -- to Super Bowl 50 in California to watch their teams face-off on Feb. 7.

The Denver Broncos confirmed to ABC News that team owner Pat Bowlen will be taking care of Super Bowl accommodations for all of the team’s full-time employees, interns and some part-time workers.

Bowlen also brought all of the team’s employees to New Jersey two years ago when the Broncos played the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48 at MetLife stadium.

Bowlen, who has Alzheimer's disease, stepped down from day-to-day operations of the team in 2014. The team is currently operated by the Bowlen Family Trust and team CEO Joe Ellis.

Likewise, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson will pay the way for staff members and interns to attend the team’s second Super Bowl appearance, according to the team's president.

“Mr. Richardson understands that this memorable season would not have been possible without harmony and a complete team effort. ... It’s an incredibly gracious gift,” Panthers team president Danny Morrison said in a statement to the Charlotte Observer.

Morrison, who did not reply to ABC News' request for comment, also said in the statement that Richardson did the same for the Panthers’ first Super Bowl appearance, in 2004 in Houston.

Super Bowl 50 will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
