May I use the Bills logo to promote my event?

The use of the Buffalo Bills word mark, charging buffalo, and standing buffalo logos are reserved for use by official team partners only. Only team partners may use these marks to promote their events. All signs, banners, displays, advertising, and printed materials for an event at RWS must be approved in advance by the Buffalo Bills.

What are the costs?

Costs of renting an event space at the stadium vary, depending on the space and length of time of an event.  In addition to the event space rental fee, additional costs may include security, cleaning, or other staffing. Food and beverage costs are not included in event rental fees. For more information on event costs, please email an Event Services representative at events@bills.nfl.net

Do I have to sign a contract?

The Buffalo Bills do require an Event Licensing Agreement to be signed, which outlines the rules and requirements of using an event space at the stadium.  

Can I hold a space?

Event spaces at the stadium will only be held when an Event Licensing Agreement is in place, and a 50% deposit has been paid.   Due to the high volume of event requests, we cannot hold space without the agreement and deposit.

Is a security deposit required?

For some events, a security deposit is required. The Buffalo Bills retain the right to request a security deposit for any event, details of which would be written out in the Event Licensing Agreement.

Do I need to provide insurance?

Proof of insurance is required to rent event space at the stadium. For more information on insurance requirements, please email an Event Services representative at events@bills.nfl.net

Depending on availability, event spaces can be rented for any length of time.

Do you provide food & beverage?

Catering and concessions are available through Delaware North Sportservice, the official food and beverage provider of the Buffalo Bills.  

Can we bring in our own food, beverage, or catering service?

Outside food, beverage, and catering is not permitted for any event space at the stadium.  All catering and concessions must be ordered through Delaware North Sportservice, the official food and beverage provider of the Buffalo Bills.

Can we have alcohol at our event?

Alcohol sales and service are available for most events at the stadium, and must be provided through Delaware North Sportservice.   Due to New York State liquor laws, some conditions or restrictions may apply.

Do you provide Audio & Visual equipment and support?

In most cases, an outside vendor must be used for audio and visual equipment and support.  You may make arrangements for the use of the scoreboard or stadium ribbon boards at an additional cost.

Is parking included?

The complimentary use of parking lots at the stadium is included for most events.  For large-scale events requiring parking assistance, paid parking, or valet staff, the Buffalo Bills are proud to partner with AllPro Parking. The services of AllPro Parking may be added to any event for an additional cost.

Can I schedule an appearance by a Bills player or Coach for my event?

Appearances by Bills players and coaches are facilitated through the Buffalo Bills Community Relations Department.  For more information, please see our player appearance procedures and guidelines page. 

It is highly recommended that your event not be centered on an appearance by a player or staff member, but rather should be approached as a complementary element to your program.  The Bills are unable to fulfill most requests due to scheduling conflicts.

Can I schedule an appearance by a Buffalo Bills Alumni or Billy Buffalo?

Buffalo Bills Alumni players make many public appearances each year.  With a number of Alumni players in Western New York, and a network of former players throughout the nation, the Buffalo Bills are proud of the accomplishments of team alumni.  For information on Buffalo Bills Alumni player appearances, please inquire when booking your event. Billy Buffalo, the Bills team mascot, makes many public appearances each year, including visits to schools, hospitals, charitable events, and corporate events. Click here for more information about appearances by Billy Buffalo.

Can I go on to the stadium field to take pictures?

Photos on the stadium field are not available as part of event rental fees at this time.

Is there a coat check?

Coat check rooms are available in some, but not all, locations at the stadium.  Please inquire when booking your event.

Can we bring and set up decorations?

In many cases, decorations are allowed, depending on the event space in use.  Due to safety, fire code, and stadium rules, some types of decorations and/or placement are not permitted.   Please discuss with a Buffalo Bills Event Representative when you book your event.

Are tables, chairs, linens, and other items provided?

A limited number of tables and chairs are available in the the stadium sideline and tower clubs, and can be set up as you like for your event.   Tables and chairs are not available in other event spaces, and would need to be brought by a third party vendor.  Other items, such as linens, pipe-and-drape, or specialty items/lighting, would be the responsibility of the event planner.

What is the cancellation policy?

Events cancelled by the organizer at least ninety (90) days prior to the scheduled date will be refunded by one-half of the deposit amount.  Events cancelled less than ninety (90) days prior to the scheduled date will not be refunded. The Buffalo Bills reserve the right to cancel or reschedule events for reasons listed in the event rental license agreement at any time.

What if it snows?

In the event of snow, the stadium staff will ensure that all event parking areas, footpaths, and entryways are cleared of snow and safe for use by your party.  If severe weather poses a threat to the safety of guests, the Buffalo Bills reserve the right to cancel or reschedule events as deemed appropriate. Additional costs may apply for snow removal, depending on the scope of the event.
