Qatar Airways Could Lose Dolphins Stadium Name Bidding Due To Political Tension

The Dolphins are hesitant to sign a stadium naming deal with Qatar Airways due to political tension, according to The Deep End Miami’s Matthew Cannata.

Both Qatar Airways and Hard Rock are said to be in negotiations to name the team’s stadium.

While Qatar Airways “could likely offer more money” than Hard Rock, the team faces a backlash from fans. Numerous season ticket holders have threatened to cancel if Qatar wins the bidding, giving Hard Rock an edge.

The first event at the remodeled stadium might not take place until September 3, the website is reporting.

The Dolphins registered two additional domain names in April: alipaystadium.com and tclstadium.com, both Chinese companies. For the full list, click here.
