Sun Life Stadium Information:

Sun Life Stadium is entering its 21st year of operation this year. The stadium was formerly known as Joe Robbie Stadium and Dolphin Stadium, and was the first stadium in its class to be constructed entirely from private funding. Joe Robbie led the financing committee for the stadium, overseeing the construction and completion of the structure. The stadium opened in 1987, and featured a Club Level, as well as Executive Suites. Season ticket holders basically became investors in the construction of the stadium, and received ample reward for their commitment in the first-class facilities and amenities housed at the stadium. Sun Life Stadium is still a model for stadium construction across the country.

The First football game was played at Sun Life Stadium in 1987, when the Miami Dolphins met the Chicago bears for a preseason game. Two years later, the stadium would host Super Bowl XXIII, which marked the return of the Super Bowl to South Florida after a 10-year hiatus. The Miami Marlins hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers for the first ever baseball game at Sun Life Stadium in 1993. The Marlins since moved on to a newer venue, but spent 18 years there.

In 1997, Sun Life Stadium hosted four World Series games between the Marlins and the Cleveland Indians. The Marlins won in game seven, which was hosted at the stadium, marking their first ever World Championship in baseball. The Sun Life Stadium is the home of the Orange Bowl Classic game, a football bowl match-up between the ACC champion and another college team. In 2008, Sun Life Stadium will be the site of the BCS National Championship Game, which will determine the FBS Division-I NCAA football National Champion. Currently, the stadium is undergoing a face lift to make it one of the most innovative stadiums in the world.
