ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Bills aren’t going away for training camp this summer, but fans will still have an opportunity to attend practice for free.
The Bills emailed season-ticket holders Wednesday to let them know about a special pre-sale ticket window coming at 10 a.m. Thursday. The general public will be able to order tickets beginning at 10 a.m. Friday. Tickets are free, but required.
The practice sessions currently open to fans at Highmark Stadium are:
• Saturday, July 31 at 10 a.m.
• Saturday, Aug. 7 at 10 a.m., branded as The Return of the Blue and Red presented by Bud Light
• Wednesday, Sept. 1 at noon
Tickets will be allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Bills said season-ticket holders will receive a follow-up email Thursday morning with the link to access tickets. Tickets are mobile only.
There was no information provided about capacity restrictions or whether fans must be vaccinated to attend – Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz last month rescinded the county’s requirement that all fans must be fully vaccinated in order to attend games at Highmark Stadium.
