Buffalo Bills, Rogers Communications reach agreement to terminate Toronto Series

New, comments

Rejoice, Buffalo Bills fans: the Toronto Series is officially dead, and the Bills will be playing all of their games in Orchard Park for the foreseeable future.

The inevitable has finally occurred: Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon announced on Wednesday that the team and Rogers Communications have reached an agreement to terminate the Bills in Toronto Series.

Even before the Bills were sold to Kim and Terry Pegula in October, the Bills had begun the process of backing out of the series, with the 2014 game eventually being canceled and moved back to Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Pegulas then confirmed last month that the organization was in the process of negotiating their way out of the deal; today, clearly, that has been achieved.

The wildly unpopular Toronto Series began in the 2008 season, and over the course of six seasons drew ire from fans and Bills players alike. In six regular season games played at the Rogers Centre, the Bills finished with just a 1-5 record.
