Eyes surely started to roll when news trickled out a few weeks ago of the Miami Dolphins being behind schedule with stadium renovations, potentially forcing preseason games and the start of the Miami Hurricanes' football season to be hosted elsewhere.
Yikes -- as if our struggling football teams need even more of a disadvantage.
However, Miami Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel assured a follower on Twitter this afternoon renovations are "currently on schedule."
Tentatively titled New Miami Stadium as the team looks to lock down a new naming-rights sponsor, the initial phase of renovations was completed before last season, highlighted by new seats (goodbye orange), concessions, and club levels.
The current phase of construction will be the most impactful, with the installation of new scoreboards and a canopy leading the latest improvements.
Hosting the Hurricanes and the Dolphins, the first pro game scheduled in the new-look stadium is a preseason game on August 25, while the Canes are set to open their season at home on September 3.
