Buffalo Bills end deal to play regular season games at Rogers Centre

The Bills played six regular season games in Toronto starting in 2008 amid complaints from players about lack of support.


The Buffalo Bills say they have come to an agreement with Rogers Communications to terminate the series of NFL games in Toronto.

“We greatly appreciate the support we’ve received over the past seven years from all of the tremendous people at Rogers Communications,” Bills president Russ Brandon said in a statement.

“We will continue to work hard to solidify our footprint in southern Ontario. Our fan base in this region remains extremely important to our organization and their support has been well documented.”

The series began in 2008 when the Bills became the first NFL team to host a regular season game in Canada.

Over the next six years the Bills played six regular season games and two preseason games at Rogers Centre amid complaints from their players about lack of support.
