Sun Life Financial bought the naming rights to the stadium for 5 years starting in 2010, with an option to extend the naming rights for an additional 5 years minimum. Sun Life bought the naming rights a week before the NFL Pro-Bowl and Super Bowl will be played there.

Land Shark had the naming rights to the stadium for the previous 8 months, but their rights ended after the January 5, 2010, FedEx Orange Bowl game.

The stadium has had 7 different names since it first opened as Joe Robbie Stadium in 1987. The other names were: Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Dolphin Stadium and Land Shark Stadium.

There are 3 teams that call this stadium home: the Dolphins, the Marlins and the University of Miami. The Marlins will be moving into their own stadium in 2012.
