Ross PhoenixWith a referendum to decide the fate of the Sun Life Stadium modernization plan looming, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross spoke to the media at the annual NFL owners meetings in Phoenix.

The proposed modernization would, among other things, bring seats closer to the playing field and add a canopy atop the existing structure. If the plan is approved and renovations are made, Ross said, “it’s really going to be a new stadium.”

Regardless of what the timeline for the implementation of those proposed modifications could be, there will be some technological enhancements made at Sun Life Stadium prior to the start of the 2013 NFL season.

“This year we will be the only team in the NFL that has high density WiFi and we’ve been wired and we’re be ready to go in September,” Ross said. “Your cell phones will work in the stadium and you’ll be able to do a lot of the streaming and multi-tasking that you want to do. It’ll be things like when I had FanVision, which was terrific, but it wasn’t a cell phone, and we’ll be able to offer that as an app this year. Everyone’s talking about fan enhancement and we’re the only team that has that and there are a lot of other areas where we’re on the cutting edge of doing things.”
