Last week the Buffalo Bills revealed their schedule for the 2009 NFL season. With the addition of Terrell Owens to the team and a Monday Night season opener against New England (commemorating the 50th anniversary of the founding American Football League), this season has the potential to really wow Bills fans.

For those of you thinking about making a trip to Ralph Wilson Stadium this Fall to catch a game, here’s a few visitor tips:

  • TICKETS: Bills game tickets are some of the lowest in the league with an average per game price of $51.24.
  • PARKING: For alternative parking options, try the ECC (Erie Community College) lots across the street on Abbott Rd. Prices are always cheaper than the main lot.
  • HOTEL: The stadium is located in Orchard Park (a suburb 15 min. south of the city). Here’s a list of the closest hotels, although no hotel is truly that far.
  • WEATHER: If you’re sitting behind the Bills bench and the sun is shining, don’t forget your hat and sunglasses! The sun lingers for a majority of the game so be prepared. A Bills game in the snow is truly an experience and something Bills fans look forward to, if the mercury is dropping, layer up!
  • TAILGATING: No matter what time kickoff is or what the weather is outside, Bills fans love to tailgate so join the party! Food finds range from deep friend turkeys to chicken wings to the most elaborate of feasts. Take a tour of the parking lots to witness the fun!
  • GROUPS: Coming with your entourage? Group discounts are offered for parties of 15 or more.
