The Hard Rock Stadium is a place that has held five Super Bowls, two World Series, college football championships and spectacular world-class festivals and events. Home of the Miami Dolphins, it is located 16 miles northwest of downtown Miami in the city of Miami Gardens. The facility opened in 1987 as Joe Robbie Stadium and has been known by a number of names including Pro Player Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Land Shark Stadium and most recently Sun Life Stadium. The stadium accommodates groups of 50 to 75,000, from casual to formal, from intimate receptions to mega-experiences.
After a major investment by the Miami Dolphins organization, the stadium's new improvements include a state-of-the-art canopy, all-new improved audio system, 1,472-inch screens in every corner, 300 level patio bars and improved lighting.
