About Hard Rock Stadium
Hard Rock Stadium
If you need one reason to visit Miami, it’s the nightlife. If you need two reasons, well, it’s the home of the Hard Rock Stadium. This multi-purpose football stadium might be located just north of Miami proper in the city of Miami Gardens, but this venue has been around so long that it’s seen some of the most dramatic sports events of the 20th and the 21st centuries!
History of Hard Rock Stadium
This venerable stadium was originally built in 1987, making it one of the oldest venues in the NFL that’s still open today. Not quite as old as the Orange Bowl that replaced it, considering that stadium was built in the 1930s, the designers of the Hard Rock Stadium thought ahead, making sure the arena would be able to accommodate both baseball and soccer games if necessary in the future. This helped out when the Florida Marlins moved in during the MLB’s 1993 season, though the Marlins would eventually move to their own digs.
What’s So Special About Hard Rock Stadium?
Hard Rock Stadium has one hell of a history associated with it. How many venues have hosted five Super Bowls as well as two World Series? Those two World Series games resulted in wins for the Marlins, by the way. At the same time, the venue won’t be around forever. It’s still going strong but it is starting to feel its age, so if you want to be part of this dramatic history, you might want to take in a Dolphins game or other event sooner rather than later.
