They may not put out a consistently winning product, but the Dolphins are among the league leaders in technological advancements.

Beginning Sunday, fans attending Sun Life Stadium will now have the option of virtually upgrading their seats using LiveSeats.

The new smartphone app, which will be rolled out for the Jaguars-Dolphins game, allows each fan the opportunity of changing where they sit -- no matter the reason -- on the day of the game.

Allow CEO Andrea Pagnanelli to explain ...

“In short, Leap Seats is an in-venue seat upgrade app that allows fans to upgrade and improve their seats right from their smart phone. And this weekend will be the first live launch with the Miami Dolphins,” said Pagnanelli, via the team's official website. “Fans now have a platform to upgrade their seats at Dolphins games and the process is simple. Once you have downloaded the app to your mobile device all you have to do is scan in your tickets and for a fee select your new seats.”

Season ticket holders will be emailed with further instruction and are encouraged to utilize the app. Whereas some of these stadium-centric ventures are gimmicky (hint, hint), this particular innovation is actually pretty nifty. With the touch of a button, you could organize a block of seats in the same row or move down from the nosebleeds to a better locale.

As Pagnanelli notes, Miami is the first club to deploy an in-game seat upgrade app. Based on its capabilities, they're unlikely to be the last, either.
