Just got a stadium survey from the Bills

Recommended Posts

They’re def trying to figure out “how much are you willing to pay for X”. Pretty detailed and as many said, very interesting. I think no matter what, the days of Rockpile section priced seats are numbered.

Just took it as well. To me, maybe slightly “felt” more slanted towards major renovation. 

 I agree. They realize that buffalo can't support the higher prices and PSLs of a new stadium unless NY pays a big %

I don't know about that. They specifically asked how much more you'd pay for a brand new stadium right after that.  I think this survey was where it needed to be. How much will people pay for new vs upgrading slightly the sidelines sections.

 

This will be interesting to see people reactions.

I was hoping they would expand about new stadium location. I would love it to be downtown Buffalo but wanted to stress about parking and accessibility so I ended up just saying to keep it in OP

Very smart. With the candian dollar weak ( $1.33 = $1.00 US) any talk of hotels being filled after a game at a downtown stadium is hogwash.  With improvements at the peace bridge, Rep Brian Higgins said crossing time will be cut in half when current improvements are complete. One thing to considered parking now is in a centralized area. Easy to police. Orchard Park has a low crime rate. Buffalo parking scattered all over the place. Buffalo crime rate now, not so low. The rail line in Buffalo is only 4 miles.

Was this sent to season ticket holders only? 

Probably anybody who has an Account Manager account with them.  The one I answered came to my work email, which is not hooked to my season ticket account (that I know of).

Got it also. Glad they're taking fan/customer input

No, I'm not a season ticket holder. I think it was sent to basically everyone on their email list.

I know corporate boxes are the main incentive when it comes to new stadia but I would settle for 2 shell roofs over New Era like in Seattle. Imagine the volume on 3rd downs and other big plays.

This smells of an orginization that has basically already made a decision in what they’re going to do, but it’s trying to find ways to give a false sense of fan involvement. 

 

Thats not not a bad thing honestly. Their business, their decision, as long as government money isn’t involved.

So how do PSL's work? The surver talked ab out financing them over time.

 

So would it be like buying season tickets for 1 seat and spread the payment over so many years?

 

If they do it like the Rams are doing it, you actually get every cent of your money back in X amount of years.

Other PSL's may as well be explained as "paying for the right to pay for a seat."

So just because you buy a PSL, doesn't mean you have actual tickets.

I chose Downtown but also selected very important the ability to park and tailgate.

 

I also selected a retractable or permanent roof as strongly opposed to.

Thats my opinion. No fortune 500 companies here, I don't see it, unless it was done very economically.

They asked what "region" you were from and had a couple options

At best it’s a major generalization, but there is an untapped market for seats in a climate controlled environment.

I basically told them in the comments section that I'd be willing to pay for PSLs but if I can't afford to sit in between the 35s in the lower level, I probably won't attend at all.

Leave the stadium as is!

(that's my feedback)

This will not happen

I’d be surprised if a decision has already been made, they may be trying to get a feel of how many “ new” season ticket buyers they would have to gain at the newer more expensive prices in a modern facility with amenities. Some of the current customers will be priced out of a new facility and others may downgrade to less expensive seating. Some may decide they cannot afford the best seats and drop their tickets. This type of data would be critical if they decide to go new. A new stadium with zero government $$ probably wouldn’t happen in Buffalo, though it has been done elsewhere.

It asked me and it lead to another question of which state (Since I was far outside of Buffalo).

In my opinion, PSLs are a scam.  it's just a license to allow you to buy season tickets.  We don't need a license now, so if anyone is getting this survey, I'd comment against them.

Just took it. I hope everyone did their civic duty and voted to keep the stadium (whether new or renovated) in orchard park 🍻
