Miami Dolphins improve Wi-Fi service at Sun Life Stadium, add fan perks

A full house at Sun Life Stadium makes smart phone usage nearly impossible, but that may change starting with Sunday's home opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

Connecting to social media from a smart phone at a Miami Dolphins home game has frequently led to a fumble.

But things should get easier starting at Sunday’s home season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Dolphins front office announced this week they have enhanced the fan experience at Sun Life Stadium and among the changes is a technology upgrade, including improved Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the stadium and the parking lots, where hundreds gather to tailgate.

The new connectivity will allow live, real time sharing on social media. Updates have also been made to the Dolphins app that offer in-game Twitter chats.

Fans can also contact stadium staff on social media to report complaints.

As they approach the stadium, fans can also receive real time traffic updates via the Sun Life Stadium Twitter account @SunLifeStadium.

The team has also created new interactive photo stations where fans can share their photos with friends and family on social media platforms. Photo stations are located throughout the stadium and include Dolphins themed player murals, mannequins, Hall of Fame statues, bobble heads and cheerleaders.

Fans will also be able to watch as Dolphins players enter the stadium pregame at Gate A. Another new feature is the “Flag Over,” an oversized Miami Dolphins flag that will be unfurled in the lower bowl and passed around the stadium prior to kickoff.

Tri-Rail will partner with the Miami Dolphins to provide free shuttle service from the Golden Glades Tri-Rail Station to Sun Life Stadium for all Dolphins home games this season. Free shuttle service will start approximately 3 hours before game time to give fans time to arrive for tailgating.
