Sun Life Stadium Facing Possible Name Change, According To Report

The home of the Miami Dolphins could have another new name soon.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the building currently known as Sun Life Stadium, which has been renamed four times since 2005, will likely have to change it's signage again at the end of its current naming rights deal.

After a strategic review by new CEO Dean Connor, Sun Life says it will no longer sell life insurance and variable-rate annuities in the U.S. The company is expected to turn its sights toward Asia.

And that means that in three years when the naming rights agreement between the Dolphins and the financial giant expires, the name Sun Life will come off the stadium the Dolphins call home.

I can't confirm this, but I'd assume that also means the end of this charming commercial series.

The stadium, which also hosts the Miami Hurricanes football team and the Discover Orange Bowl was known as "Land Shark Stadium" as recently as 2010, but Sun Life earned the rights shortly thereafter. It looks like that, too, will be history soon, though.
