Today the Orange Bowl Committee formally endorsed efforts to modernize Sun Life Stadium with private funds, releasing the following statement:

“The Orange Bowl Committee applauds Mr. Ross and the Miami Dolphins organization for continuing to explore ways to modernize the stadium and improve the fan experience including at the historic Orange Bowl Classic.  Additionally under the new postseason College Football Playoff structure, College Football Championship Game sites are now being awarded via a highly competitive bid process.  South Florida and Orange Bowl Committee efforts to attract future College Football Championship Games will only be enhanced by a modernized stadium.  Our focus is to recapture the magic experienced with the 2013 BCS National Championship featuring Alabama vs. Notre Dame and the significant economic impact on our community.  We appreciate Mr. Ross’s personal commitment to optimally positioning South Florida to maintain its historic place in hosting championship college football.”
