These 25 celebrities are Broncos fans

From actors to comedians, MMA fighters and various athletes, the Denver Broncos have plenty of celebrity fans. Here’s a list of 25 of the NFL team’s most famous supporters.


Former NBA All-Star Chauncey Billups grew up in Denver and played for the University of Colorado. He describes himself as a "lifelong" Broncos fan. "John Elway's done a phenomenal job," Billups told the team's official website in 2016. "[He's] one of my friends, I'm so happy for him." On "NBA Countdown," Billups said the Broncos are the greatest team in NFL history.
After a wild season with the Broncos in 2011, Tim Tebow was traded to the Jets for a mere seventh-round pick, and Denver signed free agent superstar Peyton Manning. Despite being dumped by Denver, Tebow still pulled for the Broncos when they played the Panthers in Super Bowl 50. "I’m kind of partial rooting for them," Tebow said during an appearance on "The Ellen Show."
Olympic gold medalist skier Lindsey Vonn has lived in Colorado since she was 12, and she's been a Broncos fan ever since. Vonn has spent time with linebacker Von Miller in the past, and she told the team's official website in 2016 that the Broncos are "a great team, so it’s fun to watch them."
Actor, filmmaker and author Don Cheadle has made it no secret to those that follow him on Twitter that he's a Broncos fan. Cheadle went to high school in Denver and has talked about the "Orange Crush days" and former coach former coach Dan Reeves on NFL Network, so he's clearly not a bandwagon fan.
Mixed martial arts fighter Holly Holm told the team's official website in 2016 that her parents "were always" Broncos fans, so she grew up watching the team. "We went up to a Broncos game, and it was actually John Elway’s last regular season game before they won their back-to-back Super Bowls," Holm said. "That was a cool game to be at and I’ve followed them ever since."
Stock car race driver Kyle Busch is a "longtime fan" of the Broncos, according to Fox Sports. Busch has attended several games in Denver over the last few years, and it's very easy to tell from his Twitter page that he loves all things orange and blue.
Actress Jessica Biel grew up in Boulder and she tweeted "Yeah Broncos!!!! It's our year!!!!" back in 2014. Denver didn't win it all that season, but they did defeat the Panthers in Super Bowl 50 one year later.
Actress Kate Hudson has made it known on Instagram that she's a big Broncos fan. "I grew up in Colorado. So when Peyton Manning found his way [to] the Broncos, our whole family was like aaaah!" Hudson told the "TODAY" show in 2016. Hudson attended Super Bowl 50 and posted "And then.....we won!!!!!!" on Instagram following Denver's victory.
The mother of Kate Hudson, it's only logical that Goldie Hawn is also a Broncos fan. She tweeted a video celebrating the Broncos' win in Super Bowl 50 with the caption "Congrats! #Broncos so happy for you #PeytonManning and the amazing team!"
Broncos fandom runs in the family. After the Broncos won Super Bowl 50, Hawn tweeted "Kurt is out of his mind happy! Champagne time!" with a video of Kurt Russell showing off his signed Peyton Manning jersey. "That's right, that's right," Russell exclaimed.
Tim Allen was a Lions fan on "Home Improvement," but he's a Broncos fan in "Last Man Standing," his most recent television show. Allen was born and raised in Denver, so he's always had a soft spot for the Broncos. Allen told CBS Sports in 2016 that he has watched all of Denver's Super Bowls, including the blowouts. "Before Elway did that pinwheel into the end zone and I think he won the game for the team – the two Super Bowls before that when the Broncos were in it, they weren’t even in the game," Allen recalled.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of "South Park," are both big Broncos fans, which is why many of the charters in the show are also Broncos fans. The duo also claims to be responsible for Denver's first Super Bowl win. "Energized by our success on television, the Broncos went to the Super Bowl once again -- and won!" the duo says in an ad for NFL Network. "The Broncos have never thanked us for our help. Go Broncos!"
The Denver Nuggets knew Paul Millsap is a Broncos fan, which is why they used former Denver linebacker Brandon Marshall to help recruit him during free agency in 2017. Marshall got a jersey as a thank you for his service and some NBA tickets.
NBA All-Star Paul George is a big Broncos fan. "My dad ended up following John Elway all the way through college and ultimately to the NFL, and that just became his team," George told the team's official website in 2016. "Growing up watching football with my pops, the Broncos became my team. I've been a fan since I was about maybe 9, 10 years old."
Amy Van Dyken is an Olympic gold medalist swimmer, and she's married to former Broncos punter Tom Rouen. She was recognized at the AFC Championship game in 2016 between the Broncos and Patriots as a "Broncos Country Hero" for her courage following a 2014 accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down. After the accident, Van Dyken "vowed to continue rehabilitation and not let the accident redefine her," according to CBS4 in Denver.
NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler is friends with ex-receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Von Miller (of course), which makes him a pretty notable Broncos fan. Butler predicted in 2016 that Denver would win back-to-back Super Bowls, but the Broncos failed to make the playoffs that season.
Actor Patrick Warburton has told fans on Twitter that he's a Broncos fan and he tweeted "Different team than two years ago!!!!" when Denver defeated the Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Two years earlier, the Broncos lost to the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.
After a win in the Australian Open quarterfinals in 2017, Tennis star Victoria Azarenka asked if the Broncos had beaten the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. “Yes!” she said when told that Denver won 20-18. “I’m so excited!” The Broncos posted the clip on Twitter and it received more than 1,500 retweets.
Actress Amy Adams said in 2016 that she's a "lifelong Broncos fan," which explains why she attended Super Bowl 50. In a tutorial video for Vanity Fair on how to throw a football, Adams starts with, "Hi, I'm Amy Adams. I'm going to teach you (sort of) how to throw a football. Go Broncos."
Joining Paul Millsap, Paul George and Jimmy Butler in Bronco fandom is fellow NBA star Isaiah Thomas. Since at least 2013, Thomas has been tweeting in support of the orange and blue and he wasn't just a Peyton Manning bandwagon fan. "I will always be a Broncos fan," Thomas tweeted in December, 2016.
Actress Lucy Hale posted a photo of herself in Broncos apparel with the caption, "I'm late. But YAS Denver Broncos" after the AFC Championship game in 2016.
Billionaire Warren Buffett "calls the Denver Broncos his favorite team," according to
