NEW YORK — The Miami Dolphins will unveil new bathroom tiles in their new digs at Sun Life Stadium.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and team president Kevin Coyle will unveil the tiles to the press Tuesday morning.
The Dolphins will be the first NFL team to show off new white bathrooms, a feature that has become a staple for teams in recent years.
White bathrooms have become a hallmark of NFL teams in an effort to boost locker room visibility, improve team health and make the stadiums more welcoming to fans of all races and ethnicities.
The Dolphins also will debut a new, $60,000 white toilet seat that will feature a “white, high-density foam-like material” that is “designed to absorb and dissipate water to the body” as well as an additional “drip-type” feature that “will reduce the chances of water getting into the toilet bowl,” according to the team’s website.
The stadium also will receive a “new, high volume, energy-efficient water pump” to improve the stadium’s ability to handle the high volume of visitors.
The toilet seat will also feature an “electronic flushable toilet seat cushion that is removable to provide an optional shower area for fans to enjoy the cleanliness of the facility and to relieve the pressure of a toilet seat.”
The team’s new white toilets will cost $1,000, the most of any team in the NFL.
The rest of the money will come from ticket sales, concessions, security and advertising, the team said.
The team also will use $1 million from the $500 million stadium renovation plan to pay for the tiles.
The stadium renovation was approved by the Dolphins owners in July.
The plan calls for $1.1 billion in renovations to the stadium.
The plans were released last week as part of the $1 billion stadium overhaul plan unveiled by Ross and Coyle last month.
The project is expected to be completed by 2022.
The team will hold a public meeting to discuss the plans at 2 p.m.
ET Tuesday at the stadium and the NFL Network.
