South Florida Super Bowl Committee Divided Over Boat Show Date Conflict
Published December 18, 2012
SAVE THE DATE: South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee Chair Rodney Barreto said that he is “in talks with boat show organizers about moving to another weekend for 2016.” But if those negotiations "fail, Barreto is also floating aggressive moves to let Miami accommodate the Super Bowl while the boat show takes place on Miami Beach.” Amid the “tension, the Dolphins and Barreto have established a vetting process for the 2016 Super Bowl that in some ways pits Miami against Fort Lauderdale.” Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said that while past Super Bowls have “purposely straddled the county line to justify receiving upward of $6 million from Broward and Miami-Dade governments, the NFL wants a smaller footprint for 2016.” Hanks noted that “helps explain why, for the first time, Broward and Miami-Dade’s tourism bureaus made separate proposals to the Super Bowl host committee this year, rather than collaborating on a single plan” (MIAMI HERALD, 12/15).
