About Miami Marine Stadium

Designed in 1962 by 27-year-old architect Hilario Candela, then a recent immigrant from Cuba, the 6,566-seat Miami Marine Stadium is a marvel of design and engineering. With a football field-length roofline that was the longest span of cantilevered concrete in the world, the stadium was built to view speed boat racing at a time when Miami was the epicenter of the sport. The stadium also hosted stars like Gloria Estefan, Jimmy Buffett, Dave Brubeck, the Beach Boys, and Ray Charles on its dramatic floating stage. Flamboyant enough to serve as a set for Elvis Presley’s film “Clambake,” it was also majestic enough to host religious services and political rallies. Miami Marine Stadium has been recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the World Monuments Fund, and the Getty Foundation, which recently awarded the iconic structure a grant under its “Keeping It Modern” program along with the Sydney Opera House.

About Friends of Miami Marine Stadium

Friends of Miami Marine Stadium is a not-for-profit organization formed in 2008 to advocate for Miami Marine Stadium. In 2012, Friends of Miami Marine Stadium entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Miami to develop a plan to restore and operate the stadium. To date, Friends of Miami Marine Stadium has raised approximately $13 million of the estimated $30 million restoration cost. For more information, visit www.MarineStadium.org.
