How Bills in Toronto Series end would affect season ticket holders

If the Bills end the Toronto Series, it'd mean a regular season game moves back to Ralph Wilson Stadium - and that season ticket holders would be paying more money.

The Buffalo Bills might be working on ending the Toronto series. That is music to most Bills fans ears. But what if you plunked down $25 to hold your spot in December and end up having another home game to pay for?

In 2013, the Bills released season ticket prices on January 30, keeping them exactly the same as in 2012. Now, almost a calendar month later in 2014, One Bills Drive still hasn't released ticket pricing - leading John Kryk of the Toronto Sun to speculate it's directly related to the Toronto Series being altered in some tangible way for next season. That could, in turn, add a game to the slate for Ralph Wilson Stadium.

In 2013, each season ticket cost between $25 and $80 per game for the seven home games and two preseason contests. At the most extreme, single-seat season ticket holders would see their bill jump from $720 to $800 if ticket prices remain the same across the board, something far from guaranteed. The nosebleeds would move from $225 to a still-modest $250. Club seats could jump over $300. Obviously, those calculations are based on season ticket prices not changing from last year.

It's not exactly sticker shock, but again, it's two months after putting down your deposit and more than a month later than last year for those of you budgeting.
