Today, the Loews Miami Beach Hotel endorsed the proposal that bring the Super Bowl back to Miami-Dade by modernizing Sun Life Stadium with private funds. Loews Miami Beach Hotel Managing Director Alex Tonarelli released the following statement: “Those of us in the hospitality industry know the value of hosting world-class events in Miami-Dade County. They drive economic growth, support jobs and provide our community with far reaching publicity. We applaud Steve Ross’ commitment to privately fund the modernization of Sun Life Stadium, and look forward to bringing the Super Bowl, College Football Championships and other high profile events back to South Florida.”
“I have made clear I want the stadium modernized because it’s right for our fans and it’s right for Miami-Dade and South Florida. I have decided the best way to get this done is to pay for the project with private funds. All we ask in return is that we are treated the same as all franchises in the state of Florida. A world-class city needs a world-class stadium. “We haven’t won a Super Bowl bid in Miami-Dade in far too long, and we know that with the stadium as an issue, we never will unless it is modernized.
