Orchard Park, NY – Friday, Terry Pegula confirmed he plans on building a stadium for the Bills.
"I realize it seems to be a significant issue, but it wasn't when we bought the team. You know, we wanted to get the team first. You always have to have the prize before you can build the arena," Pegula said during his press conference.
While Pegula never used the word new, he did say Friday that he wants to build a stadium.
"We will gradually proceed to plan and design a stadium for the Buffalo Bills. You know, these things take time," he said.
As far as time goes, the Bills have eight years left on their lease in Orchard Park. A new stadium also, of course, costs a lot of money. Governor Andrew Cuomo has consistently said he is not convinced a new stadium will be necessary.
"I am very cautious about anything that would cost more money," said Cuomo earlier this year.
