The Dolphins-Falcons preseason game is being moved to Orlando -- but not for the reason most assumed.
Construction on the Dolphins' home stadium remains on track.
"The league asked us if we would move the game up there," Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel told the Herald. "As part of the Pro Bowl announcement, we agreed to do it."
Season-ticket holders will receive a full refund for the lost home game, scheduled for Aug. 25.
Some have reported that the Dolphins wanted to move the game because their half-billion dollar construction project won't be finished in time.
That was not the motivation, the Herald has learned, and construction is on schedule. Members of the South Florida media will get a chance to tour the currently unnamed stadium on Thursday.
Dolphins-Falcons will be held at the Camping World Stadium, formerly known as the Citrus Bowl, which has recently undergone a $207 million renovation of its own. The facility will also host the 2017 Pro Bowl, the league announced Wednesday.
