Bills, Rogers Communications terminate Toronto series

Wednesday December 3rd, 2014

The Buffalo Bills and Rogers Communications agreed to terminate the team’s annual series in Toronto, the Bills announced Wednesday.

Buffalo became the first team to host a regular season game in Canada when the series started in 2008.

The Bills played six regular season games and two preseason games at the Rogers Centre, going 1-5 in those regular season games, with their only win coming in 2011, a 23-0 victory over the Washington Redskins.

In March, the team announced that this year's game in Toronto would be postponed and relocated to Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo. 

“We greatly appreciate the support we’ve received over the past seven years from all of the tremendous people at Rogers Communications," Bills general manager Russ Brandon said. "We will continue to work hard to solidify our footprint in Southern Ontario. Our fan base in this region remains extremely important to our organization and their support has been well documented.”

The Bills will play one game outside of the United States next year, taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL International Series on Oct. 25 at London’s Wembley Stadium.
