For the first time in history, the Miami Dolphins are expecting to sell out all of their season tickets.
The sellout is expected to happen sometime this week, team representatives told reporters last week.
Once the sellout is complete, the team will create a season ticket waitlist for the 2023 season – also a first, representatives said.
The Dolphins were founded in 1966, and remain the only team in NFL history to have had a perfect season.
Related Companies founder Stephen Ross, the developer behind the One Brickell City Centre supertall and the Frank Gehry-designed redevelopment of the Deauville, has owned the team since 2008.
Another major developer – Related Group founder Jorge Perez – is a vice-chairman of the team.
Yesterday, Ross was fined by the NFL for tampering, after the league claimed he held talks with a coach and player without consent. The team also lost draft picks
Despite the fine, fans are excited about the upcoming season, with reporters describing an electric atmosphere at training camp.
