Buffalo officials: Currently no plans for new Bills stadium
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Erie County executive says officials have discussed the possibility of a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills football team, but it won’t be coming soon.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said Monday that many public comments on a recent convention center study suggested building a combination convention center and football stadium. He says the idea wouldn’t save any money, as it would likely mean the convention center would be virtually unusable during football season due to the needs of the NFL team.
Poloncarz says team owners Terry and Kim Pegula haven’t asked for a new stadium, and that a brand new stadium could cost upwards of $1 billion.
