The Miami Dolphins denied a report that the team’s $500 million stadium renovation might continue until November and said the team still expects to play its final preseason game there September 1.

South Florida sports broadcaster Hank Goldberg told CBS News that the two-year renovation of the stadium in Miami Garden formerly known as Sun Life Stadium might not conclude before November.

“Getting a project of this scale done in this time frame is unprecedented, and the contractor is working diligently on a 24/7 basis to complete the canopy structure,” Bill Senn, senior vice president of the Dolphins, said in a prepared statement.

“While we will still be doing some ‘non-football critical’ elements and final touches into the season, similar to Phase 1 last year, at this point in the process we still expect to be ready to play football September 1.”

A delay until November in the stadium renovation would require both the Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami Hurricanes to move four regular-season games to other locations.

Goldberg reported that the UM Hurricanes may move their October 8 game against Florida State University to Orlando. [Palm Beach Post] — Mike Seemuth
