Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee and South Florida Super Bowl bid committee chairman Rodney Barreto took turns Thursday making major announcements regarding Sun Life Stadium and future Super Bowls.
Barreto spoke first and said the “core activities” for Super Bowl L would take place in downtown Miami, from the mouth of the Miami River north to the Adrienne Arsht Center.
Dee, back from the owners’ meetings in Phoenix, made a significant pledge on behalf of the Dolphins: Any stadium plan voted on by Miami-Dade voters would be contingent on South Florida being awarded a Super Bowl when the owners vote on May 22 in Boston.
With 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.
