The Miami Dolphins are moving from their Davie, Florida training facilities to the newly constructed facilities in Miami Gardens, alongside Hard Rock Stadium this year. There was question about if the facility would be ready for a full training camp in July, but those questions were put to rest on Monday. Vice Chairman and CEO of the Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium Tom Garkinkel tweeted pictures of the facilities as they are coming together, and included in the tweet that they will be ready for camp.

The Dolphins had been holding camp at the Baptist Health Training Facility on the Nova Southeastern University campus in Davie since July 1993. The new Baptist Health Training Complex is on the northwest side of the team’s stadium, with construction beginning in August 2019. The $135-million complex was a necessity as the Dolphins had outgrown their headquarters and training facilities in Davie.
Back in April, The Athletic’s Josh Tolentino took a short video of the facilities:
The Dolphins have also built a tennis complex on the stadium site, hosting the Miami Open annually, and announced a deal with Formula 1 racing this year to begin hosting the Miami Grand Prix on a street course around the stadium.
Miami’s training facility at the stadium will become their fourth training site, beginning in the 1960s at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca, then moving to St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens in 1970, before the move to Nova Southeastern University in Davie in 1993.
