AP source: Dolphins' stadium will be named for Sun Life Financial

NEW YORK -- Sun Life Financial has purchased naming rights to the Miami Dolphins' stadium in time for the Super Bowl.

A person familiar with the deal confirmed that Sun Life has reached a five-year agreement with the team. The stadium, called Land Shark Stadium last year, will be renamed in time for the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31 and the Super Bowl the following Sunday, the person said on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been announced.

Previously, the Dolphins' home has been called Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Stadium and Dolphin Stadium.
