For the third straight year, it will be getting more expensive to see Bills play at home.

Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News reports that the team is raising prices by an average of 4.6 percent in 2020. This will result in the average price per seat increase from $89.56 to $93.67.

The price hike, unlike last year, applies to all seats. Roughly a third will increase by only $1 to $2. Another 31 percent will move between $3 and $5. A fourth of the seats will go up between $6 and $8. The final 12 percent of the seats will increase by $9 and $13 per game.

The Bills have gone to the playoffs in two of the last three years, resulting in a heightened demand for tickets.

Parking passes for the season also will be more expensive, with cash lots bumping by 10 percent ($200 to $220) and premium lots spiking by 20 percent, from $250 to $300. The camper lot will increase from $700 to $750, a 7.1-percent bump.

In 2020, the Bills will host the Chiefs, Chargers, Rams, Seahawks, Steelers, Patriots, Dolphins, and Jets.

  1. Buffalo should build a smaller stadium because the current one is massive for a small market team (and they still sell out at 70-75k). Build a 60,000-65,000 seat stadium and then you can raise the prices all you want. Hardcore Bills fans will still go.

  2. i used to pay $29.50 per ticket, per game for my Patriots season tickets in 1994. Endzone a couple of rows up from the field.

    7 years later it had gone up to $49 a ticket in 2001. Gillette opened in 2002 and my tickets jumped to $75 each. This was coming off their first super bowl win.

    Now, i pay about $125 a ticket. It’s the price of winning i suppose. Unfortunately most people have been priced out. Or, they just don’t come to the games and sell them on the secondary market (i go to one or two games a year myself and sell the rest). Nice little profit.

  3. “Wow.,. And we get to pay for a new stadium too?”

    Not if the taxpayers and politicians are smart. With Vegas gone I don’t see a whole lot of markets left where they’ll build a billion dollar palace for a billionaire from tax money. Let the Pegulas pay for their own palace if they want one

    San Diego was the exception, not the rule. The Pegulas will get their government handout. Bank on it.

    I wonder, if the Bills moved to another city would I continue to be a fan? I really don’t know. I imagine for a while I would…

    They would instantly become my least favorite team. I’d root for the Patriots to beat them every time they played. But they ain’t going anywhere.

  8. My heart is in Buffalo, and the Bills are in Buffalo. I follow the Bills because they play for our city pride. If They move I would not follow them where every they go. they would be dead to me.
