Well, as we reported earlier today the Bills have renewed their agreement with the Rogers Centre to continue playing regular season games in Toronto for the next five years. Not surprisingly, this was met by incredible resentment from many fans in Buffalo.
The terms of the deal have not been released, but it is known that the deal will include a regular season game each year as well as one extra exhibition game. It is thought that the team is receiving far less money than they did when the agreement first came into place.
We will not know which game will be played in Toronto this season until the NFL schedule is released sometime in April. Ticket prices are the same as last season’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Bills held a press conference at the Rogers Centre today to announce the deal. Russ Brandon and Doug Marrone were both in attendance. Brandon stressed the importance of the series to the longevity of the Bills’ future in Buffalo.
The Bills have made many moves of late to try and extend the team’s footprint, including hosting training camp at St. John Fisher and the games in Toronto. Do you think these really do help the team remain stable, or they are just a money grab? We will have more reactions from the announcement coming here on Buffalowdown, so make sure to check back!
