Surprise, Bills fans are excited for 2015 — near record season ticket sales
With March almost over the Bills’ current season ticket total sits at better than 52-thousand, already up 5,000 from the 2014 season ticket total (47,482). With season ticket renewals rates at 95 percent and new season ticket sales pacing significantly higher than last year at this time, the Bills have a chance to break the franchise record for season ticket sales set back in 1992 (57,132).
“Obviously with where we are right now at better than 52-thousand the franchise record is certainly within our sights,” said team President Russ Brandon. “There is a lot of work left to be done. We certainly have points coming up here with the draft, players coming back for OTAs and minicamps and the schedule release, which will be factors when fans consider their choices. We obviously have a great bundle of benefits that come with purchasing season tickets, starting with price and value so we’re certainly going to take a run at it.”
“To be at 95 percent (season ticket) renewal is a high water mark for us. To be pacing at more than 200 percent in new season ticket sales is a high water mark,” said Brandon. “In club seat sales we’re double where we were a year ago. Suite sales we should be in a sold out position as well with a potential waiting list, so all the business arrows are up, but we all know it’s about what happens on Sundays and that’s what the football department is focused on.”
