Dolphins sell out all 32 'living rooms' in renovated stadium

The Miami Dolphins' gamble of bringing the living room to the stands has paid off.

Team president and CEO Tom Garfinkel told ESPN.com on Monday that the team has sold out the 32 "living rooms" the team is building as part of its stadium renovation.

"We wanted to create an end-to-end luxury experience, and the response has been tremendous," Garfinkel said.

To create the areas, which were sold as pods of four seats with 30-inch recliners and the option of added TVs, the team knocked out seats on the 30-yard line in the lower bowl on the south side of Sun Life Stadium.

The four seats cost $75,000 per season and include food, drinks and access to a lounge area. Garfinkel said fans bought all the pods in the past 10 weeks on one-, three- and five-year contracts.

Expecting to have more interest in the area, where fans can watch the plays in front of them on the field and on personal full-sized TVs, the team has started a waiting list.
