Hard Rock Stadium
Hard Rock Stadium, formerly known as Sun Life stadium is a multi-purpose venue north of Miami in the suburb of Miami Gardens, Florida. The stadium is home of the Miami Dolphin’s NFL team and the Miami Hurricanes NCAA college football team. The photo you see above is no longer the look of the stadium. Some big changes have taken place since my last visit, and I’m looking forward to enjoying them for myself!
The Hard Rock Experience
Now that Hard Rock has taken over, they’ve made some enhancement to make it an experience like no other stadium offers. They’ve made it a “global entertainment destination” to include not only sports, but concerts, shows, music festivals and more! Renovations include new and improved seating options with The 72 Club and suites like The Nine, Signature Sideline Suites, Signature Mezzanine Suites, and Red Zone Suites.
The 72 Club
The 72 Club is a nice deal to make your stadium experience as convenient and enjoyable as possible. Club members have their own lane to access the stadium and their VIP parking. Midfield double-padded seats with more leg room are also a part of the deal. The 72 Club package also has an exclusive indoor area with food and drinks included. In-seat service is also available for those who don’t want to miss a moment of the game.
Like with the suite experiences, there a multiple club levels. Each will suit different game experience preferences. One of my favorite additions is the 72 Club Living Room Box. With this, you can reserve a section for up to four with the same comfortable seating and televisions to enjoy playbacks of moments during the game. This option also comes with all of the great amenities offered with the 72 Club experience. Check out their website above to find out more about Hard Rock Stadium’s club memberships and suites, or to schedule a virtual tour.
The Game Experience before Hard Rock Stadium
I must say that even during my visit, we had a blast at the old version of the stadium. A large crowd surrounded the stadium inside and out full of spirit for their team! Fans covered the lawn with tents, chairs, coolers, and snacks to tailgate and enjoy game moments with friends.
Guests could eat and snack as much as their hearts desired. There were vendors outside the stadium serving food and drinks. Inside the stadium, there were also concessions and more vendors. One interesting snack was the mini grilled cheese sandwiches that looked like pancakes. Food, energy, and sports. What else does a person need?
There was not a dull moment from inside the stadium either with Miami fanatics who were die-hard fans of their football team and their city. We also enjoyed the band that marched around the stadium with spirit for their school. The festivities makes it an experience to look forward to again and again!
