Sun Life Stadium / Miami Dolphins recently hosted an Aventura Marketing Council Chairman’s Roundtable Luncheon, where they invited senior-decision makers from the Miami-Dade business community into their very own Dolphins locker room, to provide a better understanding of their intentions on renovating and expanding the stadium, and how it will develop the future of the community at large.
In true Dolphins style, guests were welcomed by Dolphins CEO Mike Dee and staff, individual photo-ops were taken next to Super Bowl trophies on their way in, and all attendees had their names prominently featured on their very own locker for the afternoon. Networking, lunch and football were the talk of the day.
Once guests were settled into their locker seats, Dolphins CEO Mike Dee explained “We’ve been out in the community and have received a lot of positive feedback based on the financial commitment we’re willing to make. Dolphin’s owner Steve Ross has pledged to privately fund the majority of the construction cost to modernize the stadium, ultimately placing no increase on taxes of Miami-Dade residents and with Super Bowl 50, BCS Championships and international soccer on the line, we believe that this investment will be a winning proposition for the community in terms of the economic impact generated by blockbuster events.”
“The creation of corresponding jobs coming from Super Bowl 50, subsequent Super Bowls, international soccer events, college championships, as well as other big events, we believe makes this referendum sensible and necessary. We want to be sure that everybody understands the economic development and activity that’s on the line, as well as the quantifiable return on investment we’re offering Miami-Dade County. We are confident that the voters of Miami-Dade will make the right decision for the future of our community.”
Miami is going up against San Francisco and the new stadium being built in Santa Clara for the right to host Super Bowl 50, which also falls on the 50th anniversary of the Dolphins. Whichever team does not land that historic Super Bowl will immediately compete with Houston for the right to host Super Bowl 51 and that also will be voted on in Boston on May 22nd.
