ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — Three members of the Buffalo Bills went to social media on Monday to ask New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to allow fans for home games at Bills Stadium.
Defensive tackle Harrison Phillips, long snapper Reid Ferguson, and quarterback Matt Barkley all asked the governor to allow fans at home games.
It's crazy Bills Mafia, we are 4-0! We work so damn hard to win for you and this city. We need the chance to have y'all in our stadium next home game. Is there anything we can do @NYGovCuomo? We can get creative, there's gotta be a safe win win solution!— Harrison Phillips (@horribleharry99) October 5, 2020
#BillsMafia we are missing your energy and noise in the stadium this year! We know you have what it takes to watch safely at Bills Stadium. We want the chance to have y’all for our next home game! There has to be a win/win solution for everybody @NYGovCuomo— Reid Ferguson (@SnapFlow69) October 5, 2020
We're 4-0 #BillsMafia! And we desperately want to celebrate our wins with you at Bills Stadium!!— Matt Barkley (@MattBarkley) October 5, 2020
We have a plan to let you watch games safely, and bring that energy we need. Now let's get @NYGovCuomo on board to make it happen..
Back in September, 7 Eyewitness News reporter Jeff Slawson confirmed that the Bills were looking at how the Miami Dolphins, "planned and executed" having fans in the stands at Hard Rock Stadium as a model for Bills Stadium.
Last week the Bills released a statement saying, "we’re still working hard to be ready when we can welcome the best fans in the world back to Bills Stadium. Hope to see you soon, #BillsMafia."
Meanwhile, there is no timeline on when the Bills will allow fans in person.
Also last week, Gov. Cuomo announced that he will tour Bills Stadium to review plans for allowing fans.
No date has been announced for the tour.
The Bills next home game is Thursday, October 15th against the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
