Bills battle for a new home
Starting as an original franchise of the football league in America, the club joined in 1960 and at that time called the then War Memorial Stadium home. After the merge of the two national football competitions in 1970, the War Memorial Stadium didn’t meet the new stadium criteria. With threats to move the team to another state and talk of offers from a number of cities such as Tampa, Memphis and Seattle, it was evident that Buffalo might be losing the Bills. However, the Bills identification with the city of Buffalo was too important to neglect and after many negotiations, the construction of a new facility with a capacity of over 80,000 was approved. The stadium had a number of unique features; it was an open-air facility and was also built into the ground. The ground was the new home to the Bills and, with much luck, they won nearly every playoff hosted at the stadium. They also won their debut game at the stadium against the Houston Oilers, now known as the Tennessee Titans, in 1989.

Success for the Bills
If you get the chance to see the Bills live, they are an incredible team to watch. The coaches have been a big contributing factor to the Bills’ success over the years but so too have a number of superstar players. The Bills have had many players of notable achievement over the years, even too many to mention. The franchise has retired a few numbers over its time, however, they continue to luck out with many talented players. The no.12 jersey has been retired to Jim Kelly, an outstanding draft pick by the Bills in 1983. His contributions led the Bills to two consecutive national championship appearances and six division championships – such success rarely occurs for an American football team. The two consecutive national championship appearances were in 1965 and 1966 and both times were up against the San Diego Chargers.
