In March 1964, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that then Chicago White Sox owner Arthur Allyn, Jr. planned to purchase the Broncos and move the franchise to Chicago where they would play at Comiskey Park. Both Allyn and Broncos president Cal Kunz denied the deal and the Broncos remained in Denver.[1]
