Bills granted 24-hour extension to avoid blackout

Posted Oct 10, 2013

Approximately 5,300 tickets remain on sale for Sunday's Bills-Bengals 1 p.m. game at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The NFL has granted the Buffalo Bills a 24-hour extension to sell enough tickets to lift the local television blackout of the Sunday, October 13 game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Ralph Wilson Stadium.  The team has until Friday at 1 p.m. to sell approximately 5,300 general tickets. 

The Bills encourage fans interested in attending Sunday’s game to purchase tickets by Friday at 1 p.m. at buffalobills.com, ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-877-BB-TICKS (1-877-4257).

As a part of the NFL’s month-long Crucial Catch initiative, Sunday’s Billieve game will promote breast cancer awareness through a number of gameday activities, a gate giveaway, player and fan gear, and pink on the field and throughout Ralph Wilson Stadium. The first 50,000 fans will receive a pink ECMC and ADPRO Sports Yowie rally band. Breast cancer survivors will be recognized on the field during a pregame ceremony celebrating their years of survivorship, and two of those survivors will be a part of the commemorative pink game ball delivery. The Akron and Albion 10-11 year old youth football teams of the Niagara Orleans Football Association will scrimmage in pink gear at halftime, mirroring the gear worn by Bills players during the game. Billieve breast cancer awareness merchandise will be sold throughout the stadium with a portion benefitting the fight against breast cancer, as well as pink ribbon cookies sold in the club seating areas, to benefit the ECMC Lifeline Foundation’s Mobile Mammography Coach.
