Posted Aug 13, 2013

Friday’s Kids Day game will feature a youth-themed tailgate and interactive activities, an exclusive kids gameday giveaway, postgame fireworks and more.


Friday’s Kids Day game against the Minnesota Vikings at 7 p.m. at Ralph Wilson Stadium has not sold out and will be blacked out on local television.

The Bills encourage fans interested in attending Friday’s game to purchase tickets in advance online at buffalobills.com, ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-877-BB-TICKS (1-877-4257). Tickets for children 14 years of age and under are only $15.00 with an accompanying adult ticket purchase. Club seats and other premium seating opportunities are also still available for purchase.

The Kids Day game will kick off with a youth-themed tailgate party including interactive games, face painting, a magician, a live animal show and much more. Kids will receive an exclusive gameday giveaway as they enter the stadium, and have the chance to visit with Buffalo Jills Cheerleaders and Billy Buffalo. The game will conclude with a postgame fireworks show.

Kids Day is presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, the Official Health Plan of the Buffalo Bills, Kiss 98.5 and WKBW-TV, the official TV station of the Buffalo Bills.

In honor of USA Football Month, the Buffalo Bills, BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York and USA Football will host more than 4,000 youth football players, coaches and their families at Ralph Wilson Stadium to reward those leagues that participated in Heads Up Football - a nationwide movement to teach proper tackling techniques to youth players to keep our game safe for future generations. In addition to those guests in the stadium, the Bills will host members of the Geneva Jr. Panthers organization from the Finger Lakes Youth Football League, who will take the field first to form Stampede Row, and the Brighton Jr. Barons from the Rochester American Youth Football League, who will line up on the Bills sideline during the National Anthem. At the conclusion of the first half, the Orchard Park and Hamburg Little Loop 10-11 year-old youth football teams – both of the Empire West Youth Football League – will square off in a halftime scrimmage.
