Located in the heart of beautiful Miami, Sun Life Stadium is the home of the NFL's Miami Dolphins and college football's University of Miami Hurricanes. Because of the gorgeous Miami weather and the entertainment options in the city, Sun Life Stadium has hosted five Super Bowls, two World Series and four BCS National Championship Games since it opened in 1987.
Sun Life Stadium sits on 160 acres of prime real estate in the Miami Gardens suburbs of the city. With a maximum seating capacity of 80,000 screaming fans, Sun Life Stadium is one of the largest sports facilities in the United States. In addition to football, Sun Life Stadium has hosted multiple soccer matches and wrestling events.
When the Hurricanes and Dolphins are not in town, Sun Life Stadium hosts many concerts and sporting events. Rock bands like The Who and Guns N' Roses have performed at Sun Life Stadium. Other performers include U2, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Paul McCartney.
Visiting Sun Life Stadium
Although nothing beats the experience and excitement of attending an NFL game, Sun Life Stadium does offer tours of the facility for anyone who is not able to purchase event tickets. Per the Sun Life Stadium website, tours must be pre scheduled and are held daily between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The tour, which lasts 90 minutes, gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of an NFL player at Sun Life Stadium.
Because parking is limited at the stadium, fans are urged to take local transportation to Sun Life Stadium. There are multiple bus routes that will drop fans off directly at Sun Life Stadium. Given that it is located in a residential neighborhood, fans may even be able to walk to Sun Life Stadium on game days.
While at the game, be sure to indulge in one of the stadium's staple food vendors like the BBQ pulled pork sandwich slathered in your choice of three delicious sauces: citrus chipotle, Carolina-style or Everglades BBQ sauce.
