Where do the Buffalo Bills Play?
The Buffalo Bills play their home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium, which was known as Rich Stadium until 1998. The stadium is an open air design and uses artificial turf. It is located in Orchard Park, which is a suburb of the city. The Bills have played here since the opening of the stadium in 1973 and before this time played at the War Memorial Stadium in Buffalo. The Ralph Wilson Stadium cost a total of $22 million to build and had a seating capacity of 80,020. The capacity has been reduced since the lease was renewed in 1998 and the stadium was refitted with upgraded seating. Today the official seating capacity is 73,079. Unlike many other football stadiums, the Bills are the only tenants of the Ralph Wilson Stadium. However, it is used for other sporting events and concerts.
Since the 2008 NFL Season the Bills have played one home game a year at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. This was the first time that an NFL team has used a home stadium outside of the United States.
