Report: Miami’s renovated stadium will be named Hard Rock Stadium

The home of the Miami Dolphins and Hurricanes reportedly has a new name.

According to The Miami Herald, “Hard Rock Stadium” will be the new official name of where the Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes will play. It will also play host to the Orange Bowl Classic and Super Bowl 54 in 2020.

Sports radio host Andy Slater first reported that a trademark image for the stadium’s logo was filed last week.

The Miami Dolphins are set to announce the new stadium name Wednesday afternoon, at 2 p.m.

According to a news release by the team, Dolphins representatives “will be joined by Hard Rock International officials as well as entertainment, sports, lifestyle and political” figures. International soccer news will also be announced.

Participants will include:

-Miami Dolphins President & CEO Tom Garfinkel
-Hard Rock International Chair Jim Allen
-Seminole Tribe of Florida Chair Jim Billie
-International Music Superstar Pitbull
-University of Miami Athletic Director Blake James
-University of Miami Alumnus Bernie Kosar
-Orange Bowl Committee CEO Eric Poms
-Miami Super Bowl Host Committee Chair Rodney Barreto

The stadium’s name change comes two years after the rights for Sun Life expired. The University of Miami will first play in the stadium on Sept. 3 while the Dolphin’s home opener will take place on Sept. 25 when they battle the Cleveland Browns.

The stadium has been renamed for the ninth time since it opened back in 1987.

It was rumored that the Hard Rock would take over the stadium for weeks. No financial terms have been disclosed.
