Sun Life Financial, a Canadian-based financial services company, is in serious discussions with the Dolphins about acquiring naming rights to Land Shark Stadium, two sources said Wednesday.
One source said talks are advanced and an announcement could come after the holidays, though both sources stopped short of calling it definite.
A Sun Life representative declined to comment, and the Dolphins declined to discuss the likelihood of the stadium becoming ``Sun Life Stadium.'' Team chief executive officer Mike Dee said, in a statement, ``We expect to have a formal announcement later in January regarding the stadium's name for the Pro Bowl, Super Bowl and beyond.''
The Dolphins had previously said the stadium likely would be called Dolphin Stadium for the Jan. 31 Pro Bowl and Feb. 7 Super Bowl, but that it was possible a new corporate name could be added before then.
