DENVER (AP) _

Barack Obama's campaign is considering having the Democratic Presidential nominee make his acceptance speech at Invesco field at Mile High instead of the Pepsi Center, according to two people in a position to know details of the idea.

The two people told the associated press on Thursday that the plan is under consideration, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

The Pepsi Center is hosting the democratic national convention from august 25th through the 28th.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Shannon Gilson said no decisions have been made.

Representatives for the convention host committee and mayor John Hickenlooper declined to comment or said they did not know about the proposal.

The Pepsi Center's web site says it can hold 21,000 people for Special events.

Invesco field at mile high, where the Denver Broncos play, can seat more than 76,000.
