BREAKING: Bills Stadium Gets New Name
1 Bills Drive has a brand new name tonight!
The signs will get turned over in the next few months as we celebrate a new home for the Buffalo Bills: Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Stadium.
“We are proud to welcome Highmark to the Buffalo Bills family and we are thrilled to partner with them on a new naming rights deal for our stadium,” Kim Pegula, Bills president and co-owner, said in a statement.
“We are confident that Highmark BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York is committed to maintaining their status as a healthcare and philanthropic leader in our region," she said. "We look forward to many years of working together with their team creating great memories at not only NFL football games, but at many other health and wellness events and community celebrations", according to the Buffalo News.
Before Bills Stadium, New Era Cap had the naming rights, but decided to part ways before their partnership expired. After a joint statement last year, the Bills and New Era announced that after four years, they would expire the naming rights nearly three years early.
