Behold, the Miami Dolphin’s Big New Stadium Gets Built in One Epic Time-lapse Video
The massive reconstruction and renovation of the Miami Dolphins’ Stadium, formerly known as Sun Life Stadium, Pro Player Stadium, and Jo Robbie Stadium, and now officially just Miami Stadium, is at the end of the 4th quarter, with seconds left on the clock. Going into overtime is not an option. Set on a stadium completion date of September 1st, in time for the first game of the season, the high performance, genetically modified playing turf went down on the field two days ago, at breakneck speed, as one of the finishing touches, reported the Miami Herald. Called Platinum TE Paspalum, it’s durable, shade tolerant, and soft enough that players might even “enjoy” cutting, landing, and being tackled on. It’s the future of lawns.
The entire stadium construction has been a highly choreographed, almost-theatrical spectacular however, long before grass installation became sexy. Luckily, somebody time-lapsed the whole thing into about two minutes of pure, gatorade-hydrated speed. The final product, created by a YouTuber known only as Ian693, is a mind-racing, wicked rush.
