Sun Life Stadium is an American football stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, a suburb of Miami as its shown in Sun Life stadium map. It is the home stadium of the Miami Dolphins National Football League team, and the University of Miami Hurricanes football team. It also hosts the Orange Bowl, an annual college football bowl game. It was the home to the Florida Marlins baseball team from 1993 to 2011. Originally named Joe Robbie Stadium, it has also been known as Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, and Land Shark Stadium. Since its construction, the stadium has hosted five Super Bowls (XXIII, XXIX, XXXIII, XLI and XLIV), two World Series (1997 and 2003), and four BCS National Championship Games (2001, 2005, 2009, 2013). The stadium served as host for the second round of the 2009 World Baseball Classic, and hosted the 2010 Pro Bowl. It was also the site for WrestleMania XXVIII, the flagship event of WWE.
Although it was designed from the ground up to accommodate baseball, Sun Life Stadium is not a true multipurpose stadium as its mentioned in Sun Life stadium map. Rather, it is a football stadium that could convert into a baseball stadium. Most of the seats are pointed toward center field – where the 50-yard line would be in the football configuration. As such, the sight lines were not as good for baseball. This was particularly evident during the Marlins World Series appearances in 1997 and 2003. Some portions of left and center field were not part of the football playing field, and fans sitting in the left field upper-deck seats were unable to see these areas except on the replay boards. Aside from baseball renovations, the stadium has undergone some permanent renovations. In April 2006, the stadium unveiled two large video boards, the largest in professional sports at the time. The east display measures 50 feet (15 m) high by 140 feet (43 m) wide, and the west end zone display measures 50 feet (15 m) high by 100 feet (30 m) wide. A new 2,118-foot (646 m)-long LED ribbon board, again the largest in the world at the time, was also installed. These have since been surpassed in size.
