Bills Release First Renderings Of Ralph Wilson Stadium Renovations
The Bills yesterday released renderings of Ralph Wilson Stadium renovation plans for '14. Among the changes announced are a new in-stadium lounge, improved points of entry and WiFi throughout the venue. New "super gates" will allow quicker entry into the stadium. The change means the number of entry points will go from the current nine gates to six super gates, which will be pushed out from the stadium to increase the perimeter of the complex. The current scoreboard will maintain its height, but will grow by more than 60 feet as sponsor boards are taken from their current locations and more video screen is added. Two new HD videoboards will be added above the tunnel endzones to give fans on the opposite side, below the current scoreboard, a better view. A new LED digital board will also be added for sponsor signage. On the first floor of the old administration building on the tunnel side of the stadium, a new walk-in lounge will feature a sports bar-like atmosphere. With the addition of a commissary building on the exterior of the building, new food offerings with local flair will boost the selection and quality of concessions. The most noticeable change from the exterior of the stadium will be a greatly expanded Bills Store with a year-round presence. Additional changes include restroom space being increased by 22%, the press box moving from its current location on the 50-yard line to the current Red Zone Club in the corner of the tunnel endzone and new dedicated lots with direct access to the stadium gates to improve entry for fans with disabilities (Bills).
