When it was just opened, Sun Life Stadium used to be called Joe Robbie Stadium, and later it was named Pro Player Park in addition to different other names such as Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, and Land Shark Stadium. The initial regular season NFL game to be hosted on the stadium was a game between Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs in October 1987 in which the Dolphins won. In December 1987, the first Monday Night Football game was played there in which the Dolphins also won over the New York Jets.

The founder of the football team Miami Dolphins, Joe Robbie, launched a campaign to raise funds to construct a new stadium for the team. Before the building of their new stadium, the team sued to play at the Orange Bowl. The stadium was intentionally built a bit large in what an NFL team is so it can be converted into a stadium for soccer or baseball. The stadium hosted also a lot of other playoff games in addition to Super Bowl such as the AFC Championship Game in 1992 in which the Buffalo Bills won over the Dolphins. Also in 2009, the Dolphins lost a playoff game at to the Baltimore Ravens.

In addition to sports games, the stadium hosted concerts of big artists. For instance, the Guns N' Roses performed at the stadium in December 1991. In March 1994, the Pink Floyd stopped there as part of their The Division Bell Tour. As part of her Sticky and Sweet Tour, the superstar Madonna performed at Sun Life Stadium with an attendance of 48,000 fans. Paul McCartney made a performance there as part of his Up and Coming Tour in April 2010. And the list performance that appeared there goes long.
