    Facility Friday: Miami Open at Hard Rock, Minnesota State Bubble

    Interesting facility flip: Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium will play host to the Miami Open for the first time after $70 million went into transforming the facility from a football-first venue to a world-class tennis facility. The facility features 29 permanent courts (11 competition and 18 practice), an entertainment plaza and a space for live music and dining. The 14,000-seat Stadium Court is a temporary structure built inside the stadium, between the football field’s 30-yard lines. Designed for intimacy, the temporary space uses none of the building’s permanent seats. — Miami Herald
