Land Shark Stadium Is No More

January 18th, 2010

The naming rights to the Miami Dolphins’ home field have been sold again. The team is expected on Wednesday to announce a five-year deal with Canadian-based Sun Life Financial that will give the stadium its second name change in as many years.

The move was not unexpected. When the deal with Land Shark Lager, a Jimmy Buffett branded beer brewed by Anheuser-Busch, was signed last May, the parties made clear it was a one-year deal that would end at the conclusion of the Orange Bowl.

The deal with Sun Life is reportedly worth $7.5 million per year.

In May, Jimmy performed at a press event announcing the deal. He also played a show outside the stadium before the Monday Night game on September 21st when the Dolphins hosted the Colts.
