Get ready for a Bills-Sabres collaboration like you've never seen before.
As announced on Monday, July 13, the Bills and Sabres have teamed up to bring Buffalo sports enthusiasts everywhere the content that they crave. Through "Captains Circle" – a new digital show – fans will watch as current and former Bills and Sabres captains open up about their leadership experiences as professional athletes. Presented by Labatt Blue Light, the first installment of the three-part series will premiere on Sunday, July 19, at 7 p.m. EST and will feature Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Sabres center Jack Eichel.
Together in a virtual format, Allen and Eichel will give viewers a real and raw look under the helmet as they dish on intriguing topics like their rookie seasons, the expectations and responsibilities of being a captain, the pressures that come with having a high-profile position in the NFL and NHL, how they met and much more. Bonding over the similarities that exist between their respective roles as team leaders and community advocates, the captains also discuss the differences.
A captain for the first time in 2019, Josh Allen led the Bills to the playoffs in just his second season while going 10-5 in his regular season starts. As Allen gets ready to improve yet again in his third season, scroll through to view some of his top moments from a memorable 2019 season.
While huddling up to compare notes on what they've learned during their young and promising careers, Allen and Eichel showcase their unique personalities and reveal more about who they are outside of sports. Exchanging stories that will make you laugh out loud and others that will tug at your heartstrings, their conversation is both candid and entertaining.
Offering fans a fresh take on two of their Buffalo favorites, the debut episode, moderated by Bills multi-media journalist Maddy Glab and Sabres host Brian Duff, is the perfect way to cap your Sunday evening.
Don't be left out of the conversation. Tune in to watch "Captains Circle," presented by Labatt Blue Light, exclusively on the Bills YouTube channel and Facebook page, as well as the Sabres YouTube channel and Facebook page.
