NFL American football franchise the Miami Dolphins has partnered with Florida-based toll collection system SunPass to provide a new parking payment option at New Miami Stadium.

The deal names SunPass as the exclusive provider of electronic parking payment at the venue, formerly known as Sun Life Stadium.

Dolphins fans that have a SunPass account can benefit from the collaboration by selecting the ‘Easy Pay’ automatic replenishment option on when using a credit or debit card.

Supporters will become a SunPass Plus member, which grants them access to cheaper parking at New Miami Stadium. SunPass Plus members will be required to park in the areas with SunPass logos on match days to take advantage of the offer.

“We seek to have our pulse on ways to improve the fan experience at our stadium,” Dolphins senior vice-president of operations Todd Boyan said. “This innovative partnership with Florida’s SunPass prepaid toll program allows our fans to enjoy the convenience of utilising a widely-adopted service in the community while also enjoying a price savings.”

The deal also covers the University of Miami’s college football team, the Hurricanes.

New Miami Stadium is currently undergoing a $450m (€399.5m) revamp and is facing a race against time to be ready for the Dolphins’ first home fixture of the 2016 NFL season on September 25. The club remains confident that the stadium will reopen in time.
