Buffalo Bills will break season ticket sales record, per report

New, comments

23 years after a Bills team with back-to-back Super Bowls set the franchise season ticket sales mark, Rex Ryan and a team on a 15-year run without the playoffs are about to break that record.

Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News is reporting Thursday morning that the Buffalo Bills are very close to breaking their club record for single-year season ticket sales, set way back in 1992.

Ralph Wilson Stadium currently has a capacity of just under 72,000, meaning that roughly 80 percent of the stadium's seats will be gobbled up by season ticket holders. Single-game tickets are not yet available to fans, which is why the team is considering putting a cap on the number of season tickets they'll sell this year.

Those 1992 Bills were coming off of consecutive Super Bowl appearances, and featured several future Hall of Fame players and coaches. These 2015 Bills, led by a magnetic personality in head coach Rex Ryan, are hoping to end the franchise's 15-year playoff drought this season.
