BATAVIA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Batavia Downs says it is giving away Buffalo Bills home playoff tickets to frontline workers and healthcare workers.

“We are grateful to the Pegulas and to Governor Cuomo for allowing fans into the stadium for the playoff game, said Wojtaszek. “We wanted to make sure those who have been at the forefront of this pandemic and those keeping us safe during these extraordinary times were considered for this opportunity. These folks have made tremendous sacrifices for the greater good of the communities they serve. This offering is just a small part of what we can do to thank them.”

Batavia Downs is asking you to nominate a frontline healthcare worker or first responder by emailing a one paragraph synopsis on why that person should be considered for a ticket.

The email should include "Ticket Nominee" and should include the following

  • The nominee’s name
  • Job title
  • Place of employment
  • The nominee’s phone number and email address

Nominations should be sent to, and are open until 11:59 p.m. on January 1, 2021.

“We’re very excited to give these tickets away,” said Ryan Hasenauer, Director of Marketing for Batavia Downs. “Once we pick the recipients, we will be contacting each to let them know what they’ll need to do in accordance with the protocols set forth by New York State and the Buffalo Football Team."
