Buffalo Payments might be taking part in faculty soccer stadium within the close to future
The Bills are reportedly planning to build a new stadium in Orchard Park, a southern suburb of downtown Buffalo.
The construction of the open-air stadium is expected to take 3-5 years. While the new digs could be ready to house the Bills as early as 2025, the more likely welcome will come in 2026 or 2027.
This timeline creates an interesting topic. The franchises’ current lease with Highmark Stadium, the team’s home since 1973, ends in 2023 – leaving the Bills without a home for at least a couple of seasons.
While the franchise is likely to start contract negotiations with Erie County to extend the lease, they also reportedly have some more creative solutions in mind.
According to reports from RochesterFirst.com’s Thad Brown, the Bills are considering a temporary move to Penn State’s Beaver Stadium in Happy Valley.
If you are choosing a college football stadium to house an NFL team, the Nittany Lions home is a fantastic option. With a capacity of 106,572 people, Beaver Stadium is the second largest venue in the country.
Moving to Toronto temporarily is also a possible option.
The Bills aren’t the only team looking to move into a stadium anytime soon. Earlier this week, the Bears announced that they had placed a bid for land an hour north of downtown Chicago. While Buffalo must find a temporary home, the bears face the opposite problem. The franchise is forced to break its current lease with Soldier Field, which is holding them for the next 13 seasons.
Wherever the Buffalo team plays, it looks like the team has a bright future ahead of them.
After the organization’s best season in years with a rising superstar quarterback in Josh Allen, the Bills are poised for a strong 2021 season.
