• Bills To Open Lots Later, Ban Smoking In Stadium
  • The Buffalo Bills are making two changes to their Fan Behavior policy, announcing them Tuesday in a press release.

    The Bills will open their parking lots four hours prior to kickoff; this is more in line with the NFL's recommendation. They had the lots opened five hours prior to kickoff in previous years.

    Lots will start to be closed two hours after the game concludes.

    Also, Ralph Wilson Stadium will now be a smoke-free facility, starting with the new uniform unveiling ceremony later this month. There will be no more designated smoking cigarettes areas, and any fan who leaves the stadium to smoke cigarettes will not be allowed back into the stadium.

    "We have listened to the vast majority of our fans who want to enjoy the game day experience in a smoke-free facility and we wanted to notify all of our fans well in advance of our first home game of this change in our Fan Behavior Policy. It is important that everyone understands that there will be zero tolerance on this element of our policy," Bills CEO Russ Brandon said in the e-mail press release.

    The Bills are also working with law enforcement agencies to change traffic patterns to make it easier for people and cars to leave the stadium. Those changes will be announced later.
