The political arm of the Miami Dolphins, Friends of Miami First, has enlisted the aid of Cristiano Ronaldo to convince Florida voters to approve a May 14th referendum on a hotel tax hike that would pay for renovations to the Dolphins’ Sun Life Stadium. The Dolphins and their ownership have committed to hosting a slew of international friendlies as part of the incentive for the renovations – Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is behind the newly renamed International Champions Cup, formerly known as the World Football Challenge.

In addition to the video spot, Ronaldo is also being used as part of a robocall campaign and in radio spots on Spanish language stations.

Want to see Ronaldo and his famous footballing friends in Miami? Vote “yes” on the referendum (says Ronnie, who is being compensated for this efforts).

Here’s the English translation of Ronaldo’s message:

“Hi, I’m Cristiano Ronaldo. Me and many professional soccer players love Miami. We know that Miami has many fans. The modernization of Sun Life Stadium in Miami will establish the center of professional football in North America.

“Please vote yes to modernize Sun Life Stadium on May 14 in Miami so I can come back every year to Miami to play.”

Some of the messages emanating from the Dolphins in regards to their soccer interests is a little disingenuous, like the radio spot that says they are “committed to hosting World Cup games” despite the fact that the U.S. can not host the World Cup again until at least 2022, and it’s up to U.S. Soccer is Miami would be home to any matches.
