If you are planning on attending a Buffalo Bills training camp night practice this year, you're going to need (free) tickets to do so - and if you need said tickets, you should set yourself a reminder for 9:00 a.m. ET on Monday, July 20. That's when the Bills will make tickets for their five night practices, plus a day session with the Cleveland Browns, available to the general public.
Where you can acquire those tickets depends entirely on which session you're planning on attending. It's all a bit confusing, thanks to pro football practices drawing several different corporate sponsors, so let's just run through each of the six closed practice dates one by one.
Monday, August 3 (6-8 p.m. ET): Tickets will be available at dunntire.com/trainingcamptickets. You can snag as many as four per order. Take one guess as to the corporate sponsor for the practice.
Saturday, August 8 (7-8:30 p.m. ET): Tickets will be available at the five Safelite Autoglass locations listed below. Again, max of four per order, and again, you have one guess to figure out the sponsor.
- 6255 S. Transit Rd, Lockport, 14094
- 2918 Walden Ave (Suite 290), Depew, 14043
- 4990 Camp Rd (Suite 500), Hamburg, 14075
- 1260 Scottsville Rd, Rochester, 14624
- 900 Jefferson Rd (Suite 1604), Rochester, 14623
Wednesday, August 12 (6-8 p.m. ET): We have a trickster sponsor here! Tickets for this session are available at the 7-Eleven, Sunoco, and Tops locations listed below, but Bud Light is sponsoring the practice. Guess it makes more sense to visit the below locations instead of driving all the way out to St. Louis.
- 7-Eleven: 1100 Southwestern Blvd, West Seneca, 14224
- 7-Eleven: 622 Park Ave, Rochester, 14607
- 7-Eleven: 923 S Clinton Ave, Rochester, 14620
- Sunoco: 5665 Seneca St, West Seneca, 14224
- Sunoco: 8000 Main St, Williamsville, 14221
- Sunoco: 1324 Latta Rd, Rochester, 14612
- Tops: 2101 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, 14207
- Tops: 1601 Penfield Rd, Rochester, 14625
- Tops: 3507 Mt. Read Blvd, Greece, 14616
Monday, August 17 (10 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET): The lone practice on this list that takes place during daylight is sponsored by Ticketmaster, because they are evidently into the Bills-Browns rivalry, and tickets can only be picked up at a gnarly URL that you should just click here and bookmark. Again, four per person. Oh, and you'll have to pay a $0.75 surcharge for the tickets, as well.
Tuesday, August 18 (6-8 p.m. ET): The second of two Bills-Browns practices is sponsored by Bud Light, and you should refer to the instructions listed for August 12.
Sunday, August 23 (6-8 p.m. ET): The final night practice of the year is also sponsored by Bud Light, and again, you should swing by the August 12 instructions above for info.
That's it! Hopefully, you've figured out when and where you can pick up your Bills training camp tickets (you won't need them for every other practice on the public schedule, by the way). If you haven't figured it out, well, we don't really blame you.
Have fun at camp this summer, Bills fans. Try not to get lost in your mandatory walk-through(s) of the merchandise tent.
