Orchard Park, NY (WKBW) - In just a few days, fans will enter Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first time this football season.

This comes after a summer full of construction and renovations at the Ralph.

From the moment you step into the stands, the $130-million renovations at One Bills Drive are clear.

Over the west end stands a 165 foot by 33 foot score board. At the stadium's other side are two new score boards. One is designated to help with fantasy football.

Fans are "constantly looking for updates," explains Chief Marketing Officer, Marc Honan, of the Buffalo Bills. "We want to provide those stats."

You can see changes throughout the stadium. They include new concession stands and wider staircases leading to the concourse.

The renovation also includes the brand new 80-feet-long Coors Light Sports Bar. It will include a Duffs and La Nova. Radiant heating will also be inside the bar for cold days.

One of this week's top priorities includes completing the Bills locker room.

Bills players will be greeted by a Gatorade sports bar, with juices catered to each individual player. The days of doubled-up lockers are also gone.

Honan explains there will be "stations in their lockers for their i-pads, which is where there playbooks are. It's a place they watch film. It's a much different experience from where football was maybe five years ago."

Fans will also notice changes before they enter. The exteriors are now a sleek black. They will also be greeted by "super gates," which adds more than 30 points of entry.

The team store is also completely brand new and opened Monday morning. It is designed for a more "gameday experience."
