Colorado currently has a franchise in each of the major professional sports leagues, with championship wins in basketball, hockey, and football. The Centennial State is also home to multiple minor league clubs, college sports organizations, and individual athletic teams.

However, Colorado has not always had the same sports teams. Some teams and leagues stuck around for several years, while others just a season or two. Whatever the reason was for their departure, these defunct teams are now just a part of Colorado's action-packed sports history.
