Hard Rock Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami Hurricanes, has been recognized for its high safety practices by being awarded a SAFETY Act designation from the Department of Homeland Security.
The accreditation, known as the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act, is applied to all areas of the stadium including the seating bowl, suites, gates, locker rooms, parking areas and perimeters.
It offers venues with the certificate a significant level of liability protection in the event of a terrorist attack and applies to all ticketed NFL and non-NFL events.
The designation, the second highest safety accreditation from the DHS, applies to the Hard Rock Stadium until June 2023, when in that time it would have played host to Super Bowl LIV in 2020 and College Football Playoff Championship in 2021.
The venue also is home to a number of concerts and soccer matches, which will also be covered by the SAFETY Act.
