The Buffalo Bills of the NFL have closed an agreement to build their new stadium. Like other teams in the league, the Bills are looking to have a large venue for their home games.
Consequently, this new complex will join the major venues in the league and help improve the NFL's infrastructure. It should be noted that not only the National Football League will benefit from these multi-million dollar investments; in turn, the football world will be able to enjoy these constructions at the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
The Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement with Erie County to begin construction on their new stadium. With the aim of having a first class venue, a total of 1,400 million dollars will be invested.
Of this figure, the NFL and the Bills will contribute $550 million. On the other hand, the remaining 850 million will be the product of public funds from the state of New York.
In this way, the Bills will end their stay at Highmark Stadium, where they have played since 1973. The current contract with this stadium expires in 2023; however, it will be extended until the new enclosure is complete. The lease agreement for the new Bills stadium is set to run for 30 years. This construction hopes to open its doors to fans in 2026.
(The most expensive stadiums in the NFL) The Bills' new stadium will join a select group of premier venues within the NFL. This new complex will be placed as the fifth most expensive in the entire league. In fourth place is the Mercedes Benz Stadium, with a total cost of 1.6 billion dollars. In third place is the Metlife Stadium, with a total cost of 1.7 billion dollars.
The two most expensive stadiums in the NFL are also two of the newest in the league. In second place is the Allegiant Stadium, with a total cost of 1.9 billion dollars.
Finally, first of all, the stadium that hosted the last Super Bowl, the SoFi Stadium; which had a total cost of five billion dollars. It should be noted that both stadiums had to be opened without an audience thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic.
