ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Bills will be returning to St. John Fisher University for training camp this summer, the team officially announced.

Sources told our sister station WROC earlier this month that the plan to hold training camp at SJFU is just for this year and does not represent any sort of long-term commitment.

The Bills held camp in Rochester from 2000 until the pandemic forced it back to Buffalo in 2020. The 2021 camp was also in Buffalo, but the team returned to Rochester on a one-year agreement again last summer.

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have repeatedly said they prefer the team does get away from Buffalo in a camp setting for a few weeks during the summer.

Fans in Buffalo can make the hour-long trek to Rochester to see the Bills up close and in person at least for one more season starting in late July. Initial preps at Fisher for camp have already been happening for weeks.

Unless the Bills get scheduled to the NFL’s season-opening Thursday night game like they did last season, training camp should begin on July 25.
