The Northern Kentucky & Cincinnati Bills Backers are ready to ring in the New Year with Bills Mafia. The Backers have planned a handful of events leading up to kick off between the Bills and the Bengals on January 2.

The festivities will start on New Year's Day with a Mafia Meetup at Barleycorn’s in Kentucky from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Panchos Army will be in attendance collecting food and money for Be Concerned - The People's Pantry, a local organization that helps the hungry and those in need in the area. Big prizes will be available for those who bring canned goods.

Next on the agenda is Bills Backers on The Banks, a late-night Mafia Meetup for the 21+ crowd, at 7:00 p.m. on January 1. Join fellow Bills fans and enjoy several bars and restaurants along the Cincinnati riverfront.

The final event before kickoff is the Bills Backers Tailgate which starts at 4:00 p.m. on January 2. Fans can meet up at the parking lot under the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge, right near the Courtyard Cincinnati Covington Marriott Hotel. Fans are welcome to bring their own food and beverages, but the Backers group will have a limited amount of Sahlens hot dogs and chili, and there will be food trucks onsite. Canned food and money donations will also be accepted at the tailgate to help The People's Pantry.
