As expected, the Buffalo Bills have shattered a 23-year-old record for season-ticket sales, team president Russ Brandon announced Monday.
The Bills have currently sold about 57,500 season seats, easily eclipsing the previous mark of 57,132 set in 1992, when the Bills were on their way to a third consecutive AFC championship. The team is looking to break a 15-year streak without a playoff appearance.
“Since we agreed to purchase the Buffalo Bills in September 2014, we have been humbled by the fans and their outpouring of emotion when they learned this team would remain in Buffalo," Bills owner Terry Pegula said in a release by the team. “Bills Season Ticket Members passionately support this team year after year and are the most loyal fans in the National Football League. We truly thank them for their commitment to this franchise. Like our fans, we are looking forward to a great 2015 season with our Head Coach Rex Ryan, the coaching staff, the players and the entire organization.”
Brandon also said that all but the Jan. 3 regular-season finale against the New York Jets are sold out.
Additionally, Brandon said the Bills plan to cap season-ticket sales at 60,000, "if we get there."
He said a small number of club seats and suites are available for purchase.
