The #MetLifeTakeover is DolfansNYC's yearly trip to the Dolphins at Jets game in New Jersey. We take over multiple sections of MetLife Stadium and average over 1000 fans all sitting together. We throw a massive tailgate before the game, as well as a pregame party at our bar Slattery's Midtown Pub.
With the money raised from ticket sales, the tailgate and Dolfans NYC merch & raffles, we have been able to donate over $100,000 to different charities. We are even a non-profit charity ourselves.
Past tailgate guests have included Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, CEO Tom Garfinkel, SVP and Dolphins legend Nat Moore and players such as The Marks Brothers, Sam Madison, Kim Bokamper, Jim "Crash" Jensen, Joe Rose, Shawn Wooden, Terry Kirby, OJ McDuffie and many more. We've had plenty of Miami media figures and podcast hosts out as well. We even had Fergie show up one year! In 2023 we were featured on episode 2 of HBO's Hard Knocks: In Season with the Miami Dolphins.
In addition, Joe Rose regularly films his pregame radio show live from our tailgate and we have DJs and a live performance from Solo D keeping the party going until kickoff.
The 2023 Takeover was a huge success and we will be back next summer with info for the 2024 edition! In the meantime, see you at Slattery's Midtown Pub for every Dolphins game!
