Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez's statement on Sun Life Stadium renovations
Miami-Dade County is known as a “big-ticket” event destination; including having hosted ten Super Bowls. The economic impact of these events cannot be overstated, and therefore we always want to remain competitive as a host for the Super Bowl and other such events.
I have met with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and we agree that unless renovations are made to Sun Life Stadium, Miami-Dade County will lose the opportunity to host another Super Bowl. Mr. Ross’ proposal is better than last year’s.
However, there are still hurdles that the Dolphins organization must overcome before I feel comfortable with the proposal. Throughout this process, we will continue to seek ways to enhance our competitiveness while protecting the interests of our community.
