Buffalo Bills Tickets for Sale
The Buffalo Bills are based in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area and play out of the Ralph Wilson Stadium that is located at 1 Bills Drive in Orchard Park, New York and boasts a seating capacity of 71,870. The Buffalo Bills are owned by Terry and Kim Pegula their General Manager is Doug Whaley and head coach this year is former New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan is the son of former Eagles and Cardinals head coach Buddy Ryan and his brother is the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints. Ryan has announced that the Bills have not decided on a starting QB yet and are going to be rotating all three players until a decision is made. And while EJ Manuel is wondering about the cold shoulder he feels he is getting, GM Doug Whaley had great things to say about Tyrod Taylor and how he thinks Tyrod has everything the Bills are looking for in a QB. Coach Ryan said that all three players have a chance at this point. The Bills signed DL Red Bryant and RB Cierre Wood to start the season. Bryant spent last season with Jacksonville and ended with 23 tackles and a sack, coaches think he will bring depth, strength and control to the interior line. Wood was cut last season by the Texans in August so only time will tell if being off all season had an effect on his playing ability.
Ralph Wilson Stadium
The Ralph Wilson Stadium or “The Ralph” as patrons call the facility. Renamed after team founder and then-owner Ralph Wilson (1918-2014) in 1998. The open-air outdoor football stadium located in Orchard Park, New York, is home to the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL) and is used for a variety of other events, concerts and other sporting events. Cost of the stadium to build in 1973 was $22 million and opening day was August 17, 1973.
Originally the team played their first thirteen seasons at War Memorial Stadium or the “Rockpile” as that stadium came to be nicknamed. But the facility was in such disrepair and with the undersized seating capacity of only 47,000 which is 3,000 under the minimum dictated by NFL league mandated instituted after the NFL-AFL merger so the new Rich Stadium opened in 1973 and as of today boasts a seating capacity of 71,857 with larger seats and more luxury and club seating available. Due to Buffalo being downwind of Lake Erie, makes it one of the nation’s windiest cities, as a result the swirling winds make this a very bad stadium for kickers, on an unnatural surface that players already dislike playing on.
There is talk of a future new home for the Bills maybe an enclosed one? Whichever design they choose the facility will continue to be a great experience for sports, concerts and many other entertainment events.
