Bills fans are expressing their optimism about the team with their wallets.
According to Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News, the Bills have realized an increase in season-ticket holders of 5,912. That’s a 15.8-percent increase over 2011.
The Bills now have 43,267 full-season customers.
Per Gaughan, the upcoming preseason game against the Steelers will be televised locally, and three regular-season home games also have been sold out — September 16 against the Chiefs, September 30 against the Patriots, and October 21 against the Titans. The preseason home opener against the Redskins was blacked out locally.
The remaining home games played in Buffalo will feature the Dolphins (November 15), the Jaguars (December 2), the Rams (December 9), and the Jets (December 30). If the Bills get off to a hot start, those games undoubtedly will be sold out, too.
