New York State approves fans for Saturday’s Ravens vs. Bills Divisional game

Orchard Park

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB)–UPDATE: New York State has approved fans for Saturday’s Ravens vs Bills Divisional game.

Once again, about 6,700 fans will be allowed in pending a negative COVID test, according to Governor Cuomo’s office.

COVID-19 testing for Bills/Ravens ticket holders will take place 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday. A scheduling link will be emailed Monday night.

ORIGINAL: The Bills’ ticket office says as of 1 p.m. today, all tickets for the Ravens vs. Bills game are sold out.

We’re still waiting for word from the state if fans will be allowed in the game.

Earlier today, a spokesperson for BioReference labs told News 4’s Chris Horvatits that an announcement on fans at Saturday night’s game is expected “shortly.” It’s unclear how soon “shortly” will be.

During his State of the State, Governor Cuomo says early indicators are that last weekend’s game against the Colts, which allowed about 6,700 fans into the game, was “a great success.”

The Bills began selling divisional round tickets Sunday based on season ticket holder seniority.

In an email sent from the team to season ticket holders, if the state does not approve fans in the stands for this weekend’s game, ticket buyers can have the money paid applied as an account credit, or they can request a refund.
