The Dolphins’ stadium is an integral component to South Florida’s tourism infrastructure, in which the public must invest. In order to guarantee that Miami keeps the storied Miami Dolphins franchise, stays in a regular rotation for the Super Bowl and College Football Championships, and hosts FIFA soccer matches, the suggested renovations to the stadium must be completed.
The calculable revenue that would be lost by not supporting Steven Ross’ renovation plan dwarfs the public investment made toward the project. Moreover, the resulting promotion of Miami as a tourist destination when it hosts such globally televised events is priceless, and will ensure that Miami remains a prime time player in the sports tourism industry. We all win big by supporting the proposed game plan of renovating the stadium.
