Terry Pegula Says No Hurry on New Stadium
Bills owner Terry Pegula told a group of media that there is no urgency to build a new stadium to replace New Era Field. Pegula spoke following Wednesday’s Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College.
In quotes provided by the team to media members, Pegula responded to a question about how long the team will play at New Era Field:
“Well, we have a lease through 2023, so that’s a contractual obligation. That’s my stance on it. This is 2017, so we’ve got a long ways to go before we start worrying about anything besides where we’re at now.”
Pegula cited the recent renovations to New Era Field as a reason for the lack of urgency regarding plans for a new home.
We addressed the stadium issue in the spring with Eric County Executive Mark Poloncarz on our podcast.
