Programming Miami Marine Stadium
If the Marine Stadium is designated historic and repaired, how can it be used? This is one of the threshold questions that must be answered.

Over the last several months, we have spent a considerable amount of time talking with potential event producers and promoters and other potential Stadium users. We have been extremely gratified with the response.

The attached document briefly summarizes our results and we are quite pleased that the Stadium will clearly have a wide variety of quality uses. We are continuing our investigation of opportunities.

Please turn to the "Letters of Support" section of this website to see information on specific stadium users. We are adding to this list on a regular basis.
