BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Buffalo Bills have their sale book out for prospective buyers of the team. They also supplied potential owners with a non-binding ‘indication of interest document.’

News 4 has confirmed prospective buyers will now see the books of the team, and know what they are bidding on.

Buffalo Sabres Owners Terry and Kim Pegula made headlines Wednesday, when they hired a high-profile investment banker to lead their potential bid to buy the team. The Pegulas have not publicly said they want to buy the team, but a Pegula spokesman issued a statement last month saying the Pegulas “have a strong desire to have the Buffalo Bills remain a centerpiece of this region.”

Former Sabres owner Tom Golisano publicly confirmed his interest in the Bills while speaking at Bishop Kearney High School in Rochester last month. Golisano said he is not a part of the reported “ownership super group” and that he believes a new stadium is necessary for the future of the team.

Businessman Donald Trump has been keeping his name in the mix of potential buyers. On June 24 he tweeted about his interest in the team, saying he would be the only potential owner to keep the team in Buffalo. He has offered no other information to corroborate that statement.
