Dolphins' Stadium Public Funding Approved In Florida Senate, But Expanded For All Sports

SUPER-SIZED: South Florida Super Bowl Bid Committee member Nicki Grossman said that the group "expects the overall tab" to host Super Bowl L in '16 to be about $21M. In Miami, Douglas Hanks notes the cost of the event "could be twice as much" as it was for Super Bowl XLIV at Sun Life Stadium in '10, but less than the $25M "cited by rival" S.F. in the bid for Super Bowl L. Plans submitted last week "include an expensive cluster of pre-game activities in downtown Miami, including barges anchored on the waterfront to create more space for the events." The "bulk of the money would come from corporate sponsors" in the area in South Florida." Grossman said that the committee "fell about 4,000 hotel rooms short of the 14,000 the NFL wants reserved for Super Bowl, in part because of ill-will generated" by the Dolphins' bid for money to renovate Sun Life Stadium. South Florida Super Bowl Bid Committee Chair Rodney Barreto said that he "expects to have more hotel rooms reserved by the time the final bid is officially due May 1" (MIAMI HERALD, 4/2).
