Dolphins to sell Sun Life Stadium seats

Posted July 7, 2015

Kevin Nogle - SB Nation -

 

Fans have been asking about the possibility of buying the orange chairs from Sun Life Stadium since the Miami Dolphins began renovations on the 28 year old stadium this year. Every seat in the stadium has been torn out, with new, aqua colored, seating being installed. The Dolphins have heard the requests for an opportunity to buy the seats, and are now going to make some available.

A limited number of full seats will be available starting on Wednesday, with season ticket holders being able to purchase them first. The selling window will open based on longevity of owning the tickets, with anyone who first bought their season tickets in the 1960s or 1970s able to start purchasing at 11am ET on Wednesday, the 1980s and 1990s group at 12pm, anyone from 2000 on at 1pm, and the general public at 2pm.

According to the team, the seats were rear-mounted in the stadium, so keeping them intact required reassembly using special mounts to allow for the ability to sit in them. The will be available in either single or double seats. Seats will be limited to two per season ticket account and will be available on Wednesday at Dolphins.com/seatback. No price was announced for the full seats.

The Dolphins will also make thousands of seatbacks available for sale as well. Seatbacks will be available for $20 and can be picked up at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday, July 18 or can be purchased online anytime at Dolphins.com/seatback and shipped for $35.

The team will also begin auctioning seats autographed by Dolphins greats. The auctions will run throughout July, with a final auction in December. The schedule, and opening bid, for each player is:
