The Denver Broncos temporarily have changed the name of their home stadium for the upcoming season, the team announced Wednesday.

The Metropolitan Football Stadium District approved the name "Broncos Stadium at Mile High" at its quarterly board meeting on Wednesday morning.

"With the season fast approaching, we're pleased that the MFSD has approved the temporary name of 'Broncos Stadium at Mile High," Broncos Chief Commercial Officer Mac Freeman said in a statement. "While fans will notice some new signage going up around the stadium reflecting this change, we remain completely focused on securing a long-term naming rights partner.

"We've had many productive conversations and are confident we'll identify the right partner, which is critical for ongoing improvements to our stadium. In this interim period, we'll continue to provide all the necessary resources to ensure our stadium remains a great place for fans and one of the top facilities in all of sports."

The Broncos removed old signage from the exterior of the stadium -- formerly known as Sports Authority Field at Mile High -- in January.

Sports Authority went into bankruptcy and the team regained control on the naming rights in 2016.
