Buffalo Bills reveal new blackout disclosure policy for home games

The Bills have sold 46,000 season tickets for the 2014 season, have a few games that they're struggling to sell tickets for at the moment, and are implementing a new blackout disclosure policy, as well.

The Buffalo Bills are no longer in the business of announcing early sellouts for home games, but are doing well moving inventory for five of their eight games at Ralph Wilson Stadium this season.

Per Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News, via Chief Marketing Officer Marc Honan, the Bills are having more difficulty selling tickets for the Kansas City Chiefs (November 9), New York Jets (November 23), and Cleveland Browns (November 30) games at home. The December 14 home finale against the Green Bay Packers is selling well, however, as are the four contests in September and October (Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots, and Minnesota Vikings).

The Bills played Kansas City at home on November 3 of the 2013 season, and had few issues selling that contest out. The Chiefs came into that game as the lone remaining unbeaten team in the NFL, however, eking out a 23-13 win over a Bills squad led by then-undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel at quarterback.

Honan also disclosed to Skurski that the team has sold over 46,000 season tickets for the 2014 season, and more intriguingly, that the team has implemented a new policy not to disclose sellouts before 72 hours prior to kickoff (i.e. before 1 p.m. ET on Thursday for most games) in an effort to curb dramatic ticket price increases on the secondary market in that three-day window.
