Ralph Wilson Stadium is a wonderful venue
After attending the awesome Rolling Stones Concert at Ralph Wilson Stadium on July 11 and walking around over half of the outside of the stadium and inside a restaurant bar area, sitting in very comfortable seats and visiting restrooms, I can say that we residents have a stadium that we can be proud of.
The $130 million spent for the recent renovation has created a wonderful place for fans. The new cement work is extensive, well planned and excellent. The numerous areas of landscaping are beautiful and very well maintained. The stadium has an overall wow factor. Even the parking lots were in great shape.
It has been estimated that the taxpayers’ share of a new stadium would be over $230 million and after seeing what we already have, I’m doubly convinced that we already have a stadium that we can be proud of. It’s big enough, beautiful enough and more than enough!
