NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has joined the choir of voices urging Miami to generate the $200 million to renovate Sun Life Stadium, the Sun Sentinel reported. Without it, the commissioner warns that Miami’s chances of hosting a Super Bowl are slim.

“It is important for us to play the game on the best possible stage and the stadiums are getting better and better,” Goodell told the Sentinel.

Currently Miami is a finalist to host Super Bowl L in 2016 and a decision from the NFL is expected by May. However, Related chairman and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has stated that he is sure that the bid will go to San Francisco unless the public agrees to bankroll half of the $400 million project to renovate the privately owned stadium.

“Without a renovated or modernized stadium, Miami is not going to get Super Bowls, and I don’t want us to become another San Diego,” Ross said. “People love going to San Diego. They didn’t do anything to the stadium, and they haven’t had a Super Bowl there in what? 15 or 20 years? Even though they love the experience there.” [Sun Sentinel] –Christopher Cameron
