The Buffalo Bills are expected to play in a stadium with a name in 2021. What that name will exactly be might be revealed this week.

According to The Athletic’s Tim Graham, an announcement regarding the name of the stadium in Orchard Park is “expected” to be announced this week.

Most recently New Era cap company owned the naming rights. In July 2020 following New Era removing jobs in Buffalo, western New Yorkers including government officials were none too pleased with the company’s decision to do so. Naturally COVID-19 played a part, but a “mutual agreement” to remove their name from the stadium was agreed upon.

The stadium is owned by Erie County.

The team then announced that “Bills Stadium” would be the official name used during the 2020 season but the club would find a replacement at a later time… which appears to potentially be decided upon soon.

Prior to New Era Field, the stadium which was built in 1973 and holds 71,621 fans was named Ralph Wilson Stadium and Rich Stadium.

New Era held the rights from 2016 until the separation.
