In a statement from the team, Bills' President and CEO Russ Brandon noted "Mr. Wilson has generously guaranteed the purchase of the remaining tickets for this weekend’s game.” Brandon added, “Through their energy and enthusiasm, our fans create an unparalleled home field advantage. It’s great to share that experience with the entire region.”
Wilson bought up to 5,300 tickets that remained as of Thursday afternoon, when the NFL granted the Bills a one-day extension to avoid a blackout. Those tickets were distributed at NOCO locations for a discounted price, with donations going toward breast cancer awareness. The team also is distributing tickets at a "Billieve" event in Niagara Falls later today with a donation of $20 or more. That begins at 8pm at the Pink Pod on O'Laughlin Drive in downtown Niagara Falls.
As a result, the game will be televised, and can also be heard on WGR Sportsradio 550.
Buffalo sold out its first three home games but has thousands of tickets remaining for the final three games to be played at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Buffalo's Dec. 1 home game against Atlanta will be played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
