Each year the Buffalo Bills Schedule Challenge, presented by Ellicott Hotels, offers fans an opportunity to weigh in on the team’s regular season schedule. This year over 15,500 participants who took the short quiz, were entered for a chance to win a prize pack which included a pair of Club Season Tickets, on-field passes to the home opener and an autographed helmet. David Marciano, the winner of the popular contest, was in disbelief when he found out he’d won.
“I enter it every year,” explained Marciano. “I never imagined that I would actually win. When I saw [the prize was] season tickets, I started texting my wife and a couple of my friends.”
A passionate Bills fan, proud husband and dedicated father of three, Marciano explained that he doesn’t always get to attend as many games as he’d like, but winning the Schedule Challenge will help.
“I always go to the Kids Day Game with my kids and I try to at least get to one or two of them throughout the year,” said Marciano. “It doesn’t always happen… I have three kids at home. I don’t get to as many games as I want to.”
Ecstatic that he’ll now be able to spend each home game at New Era Field, Marciano is excited to see what the 2017 season holds and is looking forward to Buffalo’s home opener against the New York Jets.
“The Jets,” said Marciano when asked which game he’s most excited for. “I already have my friend asking me if I’m bringing my wife or one of my kids because he really wants to go to the home opener, so I’m pretty excited about that one.”
