The Miami Dolphins football team makes quite the impact on its Florida community—and there are several ways that groups can work with them.
Yes, fans cheer on players on the football field every season, but even more, the Miami Dolphins Foundation does a ton to help out the community year-round. Case in point: To date, the Miami Dolphins Special Teams powered by AARP Foundation has completed more than 254,000 community service hours and packed more than 3 million meals that were then distributed to members of the community. Groups interested in giving back to their host destination can contact the teams to see how they can work together, or they can even make a donation to the foundation that will benefit local non-profit organizations.
Of course, the team’s Hard Rock Stadium—which underwent a massive $500 million renovation that debuted in 2016—can now host a wide range of events in its more than 20 event spaces. As of August, those spaces include 10 decked-out club areas, suites, locker rooms and even the field (on non-game days, of course). And for those who want to incorporate a glimpse of the Miami nightlife scene, LIV provides a nightclub atmosphere inside the stadium.
As if the football excitement didn’t provide enough of a backdrop, the stadium also touts one of the largest indoor street art collections, with 19 murals and 17 fine art pieces from 10 different countries. Meeting planners can also incorporate unique experiences such as Dolphins alumni appearances, performances by the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, mascot interactions, and skills and drills team-building competitions.
It’s no wonder why the stadium is set to host Super Bowl LIV in 2020 and the College Football Playoff National Championship in 2021.
