Bills Get a Five-Year Extension to Continue Playing in Toronto

The NFL’s International Committee has approved a five-year extension of the Bills’ agreement to play games in Toronto, extending the series from 2013 to 2017, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network who cites a league source on Tuesday.

Though the series is international, it is different from the St. Louis Rams’ similar agreement to play games in London, because the Bills’ series is organized by the team and Toronto-based Rogers Communications, while the Rams’ series is under the NFL’s purview.

The Bills first played a home game in Toronto five years ago. According to the AP, roughly 15 percent of the team’s fans are now from southern Ontario, and the series has corresponded with rising season-ticket sales from that area.

    Does this guarantee that the Bills will stay in Buffalo? What I mean to say…is this a binding agreement between the Bills, the NFL, and Toronto? I really hope so, the alternative is the Bills leaving town in the near future.

    It’s funny, but the news of this went pretty much unnoticed.
