Owners of Buffalo Bills tickets are among the National Football League’s hardiest souls. Other Northern cities have built climate-controlled indoor palaces for their teams. Not Buffalo. The Bills still play amid the elements in Ralph Wilson Stadium, located 30 minutes from downtown. It can get cold and blustery on the eastern edge of Lake Erie when fall turns to winter. But like their team, Bills fans are known for their toughness. Their stadium suits them just fine.
The Bills’ home field was known as Rich Stadium when it opened in 1973. The team had previously occupied War Memorial Stadium, a spartan facility known to generations of upstate New Yorkers as “the Rockpile.” The Bills defeated the New York Jets, 9-7, in the first regular-season game in their new home, foreshadowing the franchise’s later success. The stadium was renamed in honor of Bills owner Ralph Wilson Jr. and has undergone several growth spurts since its debut with the addition of luxury boxes, indoor club seats and a JumboTron scoreboard that was the largest in the country at the time of its installation in 1994. A seven-month renovation project in 1999 added even more seating, including 6,000 heated seats for those who want some relief from the chilly weather. You can find Ralph Wilson Stadium tickets at GoTickets.
The Bills have proven as durable as their fans. They are best known for their great teams of the early 1990s, teams led by Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. Buffalo won four consecutive AFC championships from 1990-93. On Jan. 3, 1993, the Bills made history with the greatest NFL playoff comeback of all time. Trailing the Houston Oilers 35-3 early in the third quarter, they went on to tie the score and later won in overtime, 41-38, en route to the Super Bowl. Ralph Wilson Stadium never sounded so loud as it did that afternoon.
Then again, maybe it has sounded that loud. The stadium has also been a popular concert venue ever since Eric Clapton played the first show there in 1974. Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead and the Rolling Stones have all played Ralph Wilson Stadium. For your Rolling Stones tickets and other concert tickets, visit GoTickets.
Buffalo knows it can count on the support of a capacity crowd. Sellouts are a tradition, one that shows no sign of abating. But while Buffalo Bills tickets are rare and precious commodities, they are available if you know where to look. For your game day needs, turn to GoTickets.
