Buffalo Bills season ticket sales still near historic highs

Despite another season with no playoff appearance, Bills fans are still buying season tickets at a record pace.

Despite another season without making the playoffs, Buffalo Bills fans were not hesitant to renew season tickets for the 2016 season. According to a press release released by the team earlier this week, season tickets have already surpassed 52,000 renewals for the coming season.

The Bills set a franchise-best mark in 2015 when they sold more than 60,000 season tickets. The previous high was 57,500 in 1992 during the team's Super Bowl run. While a large chunk of season tickets were renewed, roughly 8,000 ticket holders decided not to re-up by the deadline. The Bills began a waiting list last August when they broke the 60,000 barrier, and those on the list will have first crack at purchasing new season tickets before they are made available to folks not on the list.

According to the press release, it's the earliest the team has ever broken the 50,000 mark on season ticket sales. With six months left to sell, the 52,000 current season ticket holders are already more than they have had through most of their existence; only seven seasons have eclipsed the mark.
