Dolphins Announce Celebration For 40th Anniversary Of The 1972 Perfect Season

Posted Aug 8, 2012

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Miami Dolphins 1972 Perfect Season, the organization has announced a host of unique events, activities and promotions in honor of this singular achievement.

To commemorate this historic anniversary, every fan attending the season opening game at 1:00 p.m., September 16, against the Oakland Raiders will receive a commemorative 40thAnniversary 1972 Perfect Season cap. Titled “Still Perfect”, the high quality caps will be presented by Publix. Additionally, members of the 1972 team will be at stadium gates greeting fans as they enter the stadium.

Members of the 1972 team will also play a key role in the 2012 Alumni Weekend festivities, starting Friday, December 14, 2012 with the 40th Anniversary Perfect Season Team Dinner at the Westin Resort, Fort Lauderdale Beach. On Saturday, December 15, the Perfect Season Golf Tournament will be held at Doral Blue Monster. The weekend will culminate at Sun Life Stadium with the Official 40th Anniversary Perfect Season Team Celebration as part of the Dolphins game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at 1:00 p.m., Sunday, December 16.

The organization has also commissioned a film to be created on the 1972 Perfect Season team and its impact on the Miami area. Bombo Sports & Entertainment in cooperation with NFL Films, will produce this documentary, tentatively titled “Perfect in the Magic City”.  Bombo has created more than 60 sports films, including features on Manchester United, Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Eagles.

“This will be much more than a highlight film,” said Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee. “This project will not only tell the story of what this team accomplished on the field – milestones that have never again been accomplished in 92 years of modern professional football – but will also serve to tell the story of what this team meant to the city of Miami and to the emergence of South Florida four decades ago.”

“We are very enthusiastic about this project,” added Bombo Sports & Entertainment CEO Bob Potter. “The opportunity to tell this unique story about what this historic team accomplished and the lives that they ultimately impacted is a filmmaker’s dream. We intend to shed light on this time through the eyes of a diverse set of fans who witnessed this historic run at Miami’s iconic Orange Bowl. ”

This project underscores the commitment of Owner Stephen Ross to honor the great history of the organization. In recent years, the Dolphins have created a Don Shula statue and renamed the street leading into Sun Life Stadium to 347 Don Shula Drive. The organization has also recommissioned a long time statue of Joe Robbie and created the Joe Robbie Alumni Plaza and Alumni Walk of Fame.
