played at the Capital One Orange Bowl stadium at Sun Life Stadium
but the current home is the Hard Rock Stadium.

If you're in Miami over the New Year period then you will be competing with all of the new year's eve visitors for accommodation, and as new year in Miami is a huge vent these days thanks to Pitbull and his Bayfront Park party then this does meand that the accommodation in the best places is very much at a premium, so you can expect to pay top dollar for anywhere in and around the city, and expecially at the Miami Beach region.
