Dolphins Officially Annouce Marc Anthony as a Limited Partner with the Club

As was reported here on Dolphins Gab and other various outlets last week, the team today officially announced that singer Marc Anthony has become a limited partner with the club.

“Marc approached us about joining the team as he expressed his excitement and enthusiasm about the direction of our franchise,” said Owner Stephen Ross said. “We were very receptive to having Marc involved with the organization and quickly put something together to maximize the expertise of this dynamic businessman and performer.”

Anthony’s real role in the team is not known, but some say that he could end up doing some sort of concert at halftime of one the teams home games.

“Marc is one of the most celebrated international entertainment stars who continues to have a massive appeal across all cultures worldwide,” added Ross. “The association between the Miami Dolphins and such an iconic performer will reinforce and strengthen the connection between the game day atmosphere at Land Shark Stadium and fans of the music and passion that Marc represents. It is important that we continue to add fun, unique and diverse elements to enhance our game day experience and adding a person and entertainer of Marc Anthony’s caliber is a boon for the organization and entire South Florida community.”

“It is truly an honor to become part of the Miami Dolphins. I have been a sports fan all my life and I respect, share and believe in Steve’s vision,” said Anthony. “This is a really exciting time and I look forward to getting into work right away and embracing the Miami Dolphins family as my own”

The NFL and ESPN will also be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15) with a series of special events surrounding the New York Jets at Dolphins Monday Night Football game on Monday, October 12 (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN and ESPN Deportes). The game is the signature event of the NFL’s “Futbol Americano” initiative celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, and a major component of ESPN’s month-long campaign and programming efforts on ESPN Deportes recognizing the accomplishments of Hispanics.

The moves comes on the heels of several exciting business announcements, including Emilio and Gloria Estefan joining the team as limited partners, the renaming of Dolphin Stadium to Land Shark Stadium through a partnership with Jimmy Buffett.
