To kick off the partnership, BlueRock Energy will serve as the Game Week Sponsor of the Bills home opener against the New England Patriots. Throughout the week leading up to the game, BlueRock Energy will be featured on the John Murphy Show, in both pregame and postgame shows, within the Bills GameDay Magazine and on Buffalobills.com.
“BlueRock Energy was a company we knew we wanted to partner with from our first meeting,” said Bruce Popko, Bills Senior Vice President of Business Development. “BlueRock Energy has a vast knowledge of the energy market in New York State and that knowledge is going to serve Ralph Wilson Stadium well in the future.
