The Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement to end their deal to play home games in the city of Toronto.
Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon announced Wednesday that the team is done playing regular-season home games in Toronto after reaching an agreement with Rogers Communications to terminate the four remaining years left on the series. The Bills had a 1-5 record since the series was established with a five-year agreement in 2008. The Bills and Rogers reached another five-year deal in 2013 to extend the series.
Last month, newly instated Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula told The Associated Press they were negotiating to cancel the series. In March, the Bills and Rogers postponed playing this year’s game to evaluate and determine how to improve the atmosphere of games played in Toronto’s downtown domed Rogers Centre.
”We greatly appreciate the support we’ve received over the past seven years from all of the tremendous people at Rogers Communications,” Brandon said in a statement released by the team Wednesday. ”We will continue to work hard to solidify our footprint in southern Ontario.”
