The naming rights for the stadium that the Miami Dolphins play in have been given to Sun Life Financial for $7.5 million per year for 5 years. This ends the one year deal signed in May 2009 with Jimmy Buffett for Landshark Stadium.
From the Palm Beach Post: “Miami Dolphins’ home will have a new name: Sun Life Stadium”
Dolphin Stadium has another new name, but this one should last for the next five years. The Dolphins have reached agreement with Sun Life Financial — a Canadian financial-services company — to rename their home Sun Life Stadium just in time for the team to host the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31 and the Super Bowl on Feb. 7.
The stadium last season was named Land Shark Stadium, after the beer marketed by Jimmy Buffett. The stadium was named Joe Robbie Stadium after then-owner Joe Robbie when it opened in 1987. It later was known as Pro Player Park (when a clothing line bought the naming rights), Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium and Dolphin Stadium.
From the Miami Herald: “Dolphin Stadium officially becomes Sun Life Stadium on Wednesday“
