Now that the 2022 NFL schedule has been released, out-of-state Miami Dolphins fans can continue with travel plans, accommodations, PTO requests and long weekends in South Florida. Florida.
One of the most enjoyable parts of football for any fan is planning the games they’re heading to, but especially in the Dolphins community, fan club weekend has always been a hyped game.
Last season, before the game against the Houston Texans in Week 9, Dolphins fans from all over Florida and around the world flocked to several gatherings, including a memorable night at Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill and, of course, victory the next day. .
It’s a weekend where names and faces come together from social media interactions, and even podcast co-hosts meet for the first time. The 2021 weekend was an absolute success, and it just so happened to be the start of a seven-game winning streak on the court for the Dolphins.
The weekend was such a success that it led to a week-long stay for many Dolphins fanatics, as five days later another victory came in the form of the demolition of the Baltimore Ravens.
As for 2022, Week 6 is the one to circle for fans. This game sees the Minnesota Vikings come to Miami after a two-game road trip that includes a Thursday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals and a trip to their AFC East rivals, the New York Jets.
It will be a welcome homecoming after a difficult opening slate and, like last year, there is a national prime time game after Fan Club weekend, the Pittsburgh Steelers come in town for a Week 7 Sunday Night Football game with the Dolphins.
Like last year, two consecutive home games, including one in prime time, could be a spark, just like last season. The only hope is that this year’s version of the Dolphins avoids a start like 2021, which saw a seven-game losing streak after the season opener.
