Sun Life Stadium's Renovation Includes Seats Closer to Field, Really Good Food

On Thursday, the Miami Dolphins officially unveiled the newly renovated Sun Life Stadium with its sleeker, more fan-friendly look. And, so far, the reviews seem to be very good.

After failing to secure $400 million in tax money to fund the much-needed renovations, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross dipped into his own deep pockets and threw down $350 million to fix up the Stadium Formerly Known as Joe Robbie. The new-look stadium will eventually have a canopy and roof, but for now, the new digs are fresh, clean, modern, and stylish.

The biggest rave reviews from the local reporters who toured the stadium on Thursday seem to be on how much closer the seats are to the field, compared to before.

The other thing reporters are raving about... THE FOOD UPGRADES.

Stephen Ross has been desperate to get the NFL to allow Miami to host a Super Bowl. And from the looks of it, he might well be on his way to convincing the league to do just that.

Sun Life is also in the running to host the College Football Playoff in 2018. Executives from the committee visited and toured the stadium last Wednesday

Fans will get a glimpse of the new digs this Saturday, when the Dolphins host the visiting Atlanta Falcons for the Fins' third preseason game of the year.
