The Buffalo Bills made plans Friday to buy up any remaining tickets to Sunday’s game against Cincinnati, guaranteeing the game will not be blacked out on local television.
The offer was made by team owner Ralph Wilson Jr., said Russell Brandon, president and CEO, in a statement.
“Mr. Wilson has generously guaranteed the purchase of the remaining tickets for this weekend’s game,” Brandon said. “Through their energy and enthusiasm, our fans create an unparalleled home field advantage. It’s great to share that experience with the entire region.”
Some 3,500 tickets were still available by early afternoon Thursday when the team announced a 24-hour extension of the blackout deadline.
Remaining tickets can be purchased through game time, Sunday at 1 p.m., team officials said.
