How to flip through the best brands from Buffalo Bills to Buffalo Sabres
On the heels of their historic Super Bowl win, the Buffalo Bills are now preparing for the next phase of their rebuild: to move to a new stadium.
The team announced Wednesday that it has signed a lease to open its new stadium in 2019, with a goal to have it completed by 2020.
The deal will keep the Bills in the state of New York for at least 20 more years.
The news comes on the heels, however, of the NFL’s latest round of deals with two new teams in Miami and Baltimore, which will begin in 2020 and be followed by two more in 2021 and 2022.
The Bills are also set to be among the new owners of a brand new arena in downtown Buffalo.
The new arena will be built on the site of the current Pegula Center, which the team had originally announced it would leave for years.
In addition to the lease, the Bills have signed a letter of intent to use the building for an NFL-sanctioned event for three years.
This is the third major stadium deal for the team in the last three months, according to an ESPN report, with the Bills signing a two-year lease for a stadium in Las Vegas in March.
