So Stephen Ross' stadium renovation has paid off as Miami will be hosting the Super Bowl in 2020.
In a perfect harmony between roman numerals and night club, the 54th Super Bowl in NFL history will aptly be named Super Bowl LIV. Miami beat out Tampa.
There's not only a Club LIV in the Fontainebleau on Miami Beach but there's been one inside the stadium's upper end zone since 2010.
The stadium was expected to cost $450 million but Ross confirmed that number is closer to $500 million...
Ross jokes, when told he wrote a $450 million check. "I wish it was a $450 million check." It's more like a half-billion.— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) May 24, 2016
Final stadium renovations are currently being completed in advance of next season, with the highly anticipated canopy and upgraded video boards. Last year's phase of renovations featured upgraded seating, luxury suites, and new vendors.
While many will say the game is expected to bring the city $500 million in revenue, some think that number is closer to between $30 million and $90 million.
