Brandon: New Fisher agreement soon

At the close of Bills training camp at St. John Fisher, Bills CEO Russ Brandon stated that while the agreement between the team and the school is expiring, he’s optimistic that a new agreement will be in place in short order.

“We’ve had a lot of discussions over the last month and the long and short of it is I think we’re close again on an agreement for St. John Fisher to be the summer home of the Bills for many, many years to come,” said Brandon.

There was the issue of addressing the limited grass field space, as the construction of a new all weather track dramatically reduced the green space that previously housed two full grass football fields. Chan Gailey and his staff were stuck with a pair of 50-yard fields instead.

“We’ve been talking about just that,” said Brandon. “How can we work through the field conditions that we had. We made it work. It was not ideal, but we think we have a solution moving forward and at the appropriate time we’ll talk to everybody about that. But we feel very comfortable that we’ll be here for many, many years to come.”
