Few franchises can match the prestige and history of the Miami Dolphins. Winning Super Bowls VII and VIII established the Dolphins as an NFL powerhouse from its outset. In 1972-1973, the Dolphins became the only team ever to complete a perfect season with a Super Bowl victory. Legendary names such as Don Shula and Dan Marino, both of whom are among the greatest ever in their respective roles, characterize this rich history. While the Dolphins haven’t appeared in a Super Bowl in over 30 years, their luck would appear to be turning around, with the team returning to the playoffs in 2016. Led by young head coach Adam Gase and emerging stars such as cornerback Xavien Howard, running back Kenyan Drake, and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, the future looks bright in Miami.
When most people think of Miami, a few main ideas come to mind: warm weather, beaches, nightlife, and parties. These features of the city also evoke images of the Dolphins fan base: intense, passionate about their team, and always looking for a good time. Even throughout some difficult seasons, Dolphins fans have never abandoned their team. They have a strong record of game attendance, both at Hard Rock Stadium and on the road. Dolphins fans will never cease to have pride in their city and in their team.
