Buffalo Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon has released a statement about the team's relationship with Rogers Media in Toronto. Buffalo News reporter Mark Gaughan wrote this morning the Bills will not play there in 2014.
"The Buffalo Bills and Rogers are committed to delivering a first-class NFL experience to Canadians. As such, we have postponed for one year the scheduled 2014 regular-season game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, and that game will return to Ralph Wilson Stadium. We will use this time to collectively evaluate opportunities and build on the foundation to enhance future games.
"We are committed to continuing our partnership and have secured a robust sponsorship agreement for the 2014 season that will bring Canadian NFL fans visibility and access to the Bills. The sponsorship includes ticketing, merchandising, media exposure and a newly created Canada House, near Ralph Wilson Stadium, that will serve as the official pre-game Canadian tailgate zone for all Bills home games.
"The NFL remains very popular in Canada and we are dedicated to enriching the experience for the fans."
