Bills Fans Will Get Brand New Food Inside Their New Stadium
The Buffalo Bills will only be playing at Highmark Stadium for the next three years. After that, they will move across the street into their brand new, open-air stadium.
The 60,000+ seat stadium will be state-of-the-art and cost $1.4 billion. It will be completed by the summer of 2026, which is just in time for the 2026 regular season.
Construction has already begun at the lost across the street from Highmark Stadium, with major digging beginning in June. Steel is expected to go up towards the end of the year, according to Bills EVP/COO Ron Raccuia, who spoke to Matt Bove of WKBW.
On Tuesday night, a major piece of news regarding the new Bills stadium broke. There will be new food for the Bills inside this new stadium.
The Buffalo News reports that Legends will be the new food and beverage provider for the new Bills stadium. This means after 2025, Delaware North will no longer be the food and beverage provider for the Buffalo Bills.
Legends won the rights from the Bills. They were one of four finalists, including Delaware North, Sodexo and Levy Restaurants.
Legends was co-founded by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. They were already working with the Bills and Populous on the design of the new stadium, so Jones' company has now played two major factors in the new Bills stadium, which is ironic, considering how many Bills fans are not a fan of the Cowboys and Jones.
Some of the other stadiums that Legends provides food for include Yankee Stadium (New York City), AT&T Stadium (Dallas) and SoFi Stadium (Los Angeles).
Some of the food that is available at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, where Legends is based, includes:
- Lobster mac & cheese
- Fried mozzarella burger
- Buffalo chicken nachos
- Touchdown tots
- Cheetos mac & cheese balls
- Chicken wraps
This means the food will have a different look and taste. There will be new and creative menu creations as well. You can probably bet on a Buffalo themed menu, to stay true to the region. This is something Bills fans can get excited for.
