NFL owners unanimously approve Terry and Kim Pegula as the new owners of the Buffalo Bills. The Pegulas, also owners of the Buffalo Sabres, purchase the team for 1.4 billion. New York Senator Charles Schumer:
Today, all of western New York can yell out, ‘Touchdown!’ because we have secured long-term owners for the Bills who are fully committed to keeping the team in Western New York for generations. Over the course of these past few months, I spoke regularly with the NFL and with a number of owners and conveyed my belief that the Pegulas, with their Buffalo roots, were fully committed to the Bills’ future in western New York and the right pair to carry on Ralph Wilson’s legacy. The owners have made an excellent decision in unanimously approving the Pegulas’ ownership of the team, and I am confident Terry and Kim will be excellent stewards of this next chapter in Bills history.
