2017 #MetLifeTakeover Photos

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Ignoring everything that happened after 1pm, yesterday was a tremendous success. We had over 1000 Dolphins fans sit together, threw one hell of a tailgate and raised a TON of money for charity. I just wanted to quickly thank everyone who came out especially our volunteers and everyone who helped us get stuff on and off the busses. The day went very smoothly right up until the moment the game started.

Huge shout out to Urban Tailgate for their help with the party. We had a few tiny hiccups (the Jets wouldn’t lets us park our busses by the tailgate!) but overall it was amazing. We had some complaints about the cost before the tailgate but I didn’t hear a single complaint afterwards. I have a feeling we are not gonna have any trouble selling tickets next year.  This tailgate was fairly last minute and I can’t wait until next year because we are gonna up the game on everything. Next year should be epic.

Thanks to DJ Tropic for playing music and Solo D and DWA for playing a few songs and keeping the crowd going long after the performance.

Thanks to Joe Rose and the team at Cup Of Joe for taping their show live at our tailgate.  Nat Moore and Tom Garfinkel were guests on the show and hung out a bunch. Thanks to Jason Jenkins who helped put that together and has been at pretty much every Takeover. He’s a huge supporter of what we do. Jim Jenson came by the tailgate too just to hang out. That was pretty amazing. Thanks Crash!

And finally thanks to our liquor sponsor Sailor Jerry. They have sponsored the last few tailgates and we really appreciate the love. I think they actually have a bar at Hard Rock Stadium.

I am sure I am missing some people but we will thank them all in the wrap up video. We will also have an update of all the money we were able to donate to charity thanks to this weekend, but I should mention that the Cam Wake signed helmet raffle raised nearly $1800 alone for the Miami Dolphins Foundation and we donate $500 to Kiko Alonso’s hurricane fundraiser after the raffle we did at the party at Slattery’s Saturday night.

I gotta be honest and tell you that after the tailgate last year I was completely burnt out and ready to never do this again, but this year I am just sunburnt and ready to start planning the 2018 Takeover!

Phins up, Jets still suck, check out all the pictures below!

2017 #MetLifeTakeover Details

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

We have officially sold out of tickets! We have nearly 1000 Dolfans coming with us to the Jets game with us this weekend making it the second largest #MetLifeTakeover of all time!  Now that we are done selling tickets let’s breakdown the plan for this weekend. Hopefully this will answer everyone’s questions. Read it carefully!

SATURDAY NIGHT:

We are having a party Saturday night at Slattery’s Midtown Pub from 7-9pm. We do this so people who aren’t from the area can check out our bar and meet people before the game. DJ Tropic will be spinning and Solo D is going to perform and we will be selling merch and doing raffle prizes and all that. It should be fun, come hang out!

SUNDAY MORNING:

If you are taking the bus with us to the game (and already bought bus tickets from us, we are sold out!) you will  need to meet at Slattery’s at 7am. It takes a while to get everyone signed in and we are boarding the busses at 8am so please come early. Slattery’s will have bagels and coffee for everyone. Please don’t bring coffee or other opened drinks into the bar.

TAILGATE:

Our tailgate starts at 9am and will be held at L4 in the bus lot. If you are driving and meeting us there you should look for a yellow parking pass and then walk over from the car parking area.

We offer an all you can eat/drink tailgate option from our friends at Urban Tailgate who are taking care of all of that. Tailgate tickets are available for $55 using the coupon DolfansNYC but only until 5pm Thursday. After that you can buy a ticket at the game but the price goes up to a staggering $85 so get your ticket no!

That being said, you do not need to pay for a tailgate pass to party with us! It’s optional. Feel free to bring your own food and drink and party with us. Bring a grill, bring anything. Let’s blow this thing out!

Joe Rose will be taping his Cup of Joe show live from our tailgate! He filmed from Slattery’s last year and it was a big success so they are back. That should be really fun.

We also will be having another performance from Solo D and DJ Tropic will be DJing as well. Tons of games will be set up and we will be selling merch and raffling off a Cam Wake signed helmet. Should be a hell of a party.

GAME TIME:

The game starts at 1pm and it’s expected to be sunny and in the 80s! Hell of a change of pace from the last few years. We are completely sold out of tickets but we have sections 345 & 346 plus a lot of seats in 344 so if you can find any of those on the secondary market come get crazy with us.

Last week at the Chargers game Dolphins fans made the news for taking over the new LA stadium, so let’s do the same. Let’s get loud as hell but save your voice for big moments. We gotta last all game. Watch for us to lead chants and bring rally towels (we will be selling some too). Let’s get crazy.

Oh, make sure you remember a clear bag for your stuff because the they won’t let bags in the stadium. We will be selling those too.

After the game if you are on the busses get back quickly because we will be leaving soon after the game. We will be dropping off at Slattery’s and hanging out and watching the late games and hopefully celebrating!

SOCIAL:

Finally, please use the hashtag #MetLifeTakeover as much as possible on any of your social accounts. We wanna get it trending again. Tag the players and the team and let them know what we are doing. Tag us as well. We are @DolfansNYC on everything. Oh, and we are working on a Snaphchat filter for the game so watch for that too!

 

#MetLifeTakeover Partners With Urban Tailgate!

Friday, September 1st, 2017

We hope you’re as excited about #MetLifeTakeover as we are!! In a little over 3 weeks we will fill our sections with aqua and orange, giving our Dolphins a TRUE home field advantage!!

If you haven’t signed up it’s not too late! Sign up here! If you have signed up and haven’t paid yet get your money in ASAP!

Dolfans NYC is excited to announce a new partnership with Urban Tailgate! As you know, in the past we have done our own tailgates and while they’ve been fun, they’ve grown so big that it’s beyond the bandwidth of what we can put together. We almost decided not to do one this year, but then we were approached by Urban Tailgate to do something custom JUST FOR DOLPHINS FANS.

Urban Tailgate has built up a very cool brand and they have a great relationship with the stadium. They have all the permits needed to set up a full-service tailgate with tons of food and various drink options and they’ve been doing this at quite a few stadiums for different teams.

They are setting up a custom Dolfans NYC tailgate in the bus lot and are giving us a promo code for $20 off each ticket just for Dolfans NYC members!! Plus, a portion of each ticket sale will go to our charity.

The tailgate is all you can drink and eat! Fully Catered hot food including sausage and peppers, chicken marsala, BBQ pulled pork, penne a la vodka, hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken scarpiello, veggie burgers, and more!

Plus there will be tons of games set up, music from DJ Tropic and all the other stuff you associate with the #MetLifeTakeover only taken to another level.

They will be set up in the bus lot, next to where our buses will be parked and they will have everything up and running by the time we get there.

Now this is a lot more expensive than in years past but we think this is still a great deal.  Instead of a hamburger you get some serious food and instead of a couple of beers we will have a bar set up with beer, liquor and wine.  The regular price is $75 per ticket ($45 for kids/non-alcoholic option), BUT, if you USE THE PROMO CODE DOLFANSNYC YOU WILL GET $20 OFF!!! And  part of each ticket sale goes to our 501(c)(3) for charity!

For more details and to purchase your tickets, please click here! 

REMEMBER – Promo code is DOLFANSNYC to get your $20 off!!!
Can’t wait to see everyone at the game!! GO DOLPHINS!!!
