Owner and Managing General Partner of The Miami Dolphins, Stephen M. Ross, and celebrated singer songwriter Jimmy Buffett have announced that Dolphin Stadium will be renamed LandShark Stadium. This unique branding will bring Buffett’s Margaritaville and LandShark to enhance the game-day experience for Dolphans.
Today Jimmy will unveil the new lyrics to his iconic song “FINS”, written expressly for the team and all Dolphin fans in South Florida. In addition, in recognition of this unprecedented relationship, the stadium will be renamed LandShark Stadium.
“Jimmy Buffett is known and loved worldwide for his music and for his portrayal of the tropical lifestyle that is synonymous with South Florida, and we are honored to have him bring his unique culture to our organization,” said Ross. “It’s an exciting day for our franchise and our fans; this partnership will help create a memorable game-day experience at our home games for everyone.”
“What a cool thing to be doing and especially at home in South Florida,” said Buffett. “I am honored and look forward to working (not that hard) with the Dolphin organization. I just want to thank Steve for having the idea to think a little out of the box and including us in his vision of more fun for the fans. All I can add is, Let the Fin begin!”
“We’re thrilled that Jimmy has created a song expressly for the team,” continued Ross. “I can’t think of any other franchise that has been honored in such a way. Because of our unique partnership, we are giving the stadium a name that is symbolic of the tropical lifestyle that Jimmy is synonymous with and underscores the unique and exciting image of South Florida that is admired throughout the world.
“This is just the start of the many projects we will be introducing in the coming months that will appeal to the varied nature of our fans. South Florida is one of the most diverse areas in the country and we want to make LandShark Stadium the place to be on Sunday and Monday nights,” concluded Ross.
