Andrew Cuomo “eager” to get Bills fans back in stadium, plans to meet with team

One day after the Buffalo Bills said for the “foreseeable future” fans would not be attending the team’s home games, there could be a potentially more positive update.

According to USA TODAY, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday that he plans to take a tour of Bills Stadium in Orchard Park and meet with the team to discuss the possibility of fans returning to stands sooner rather than later.

“We’re trying to get the infection rate down,” Cuomo said. “I’m going to take a tour of the stadium and meet with team leadership and talk it through.”

Cuomo also said he spoke with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on the matter.

A set date for this tour was not mentioned, but the timing of it, right after the Bills released their Tuesday statement which mentioned that the team was working with the New York State Department of Health on the situation, is certainly interesting.
