Bills fans bring a dose of fun to London

LONDON, England (WIVB) — Fans of the Buffalo Bills are flocking to London in droves, and they’re bringing a dose of Buffalo fun across the pond.

Americans in London will bring the top tailgating atmosphere in the NFL — as ranked by Yahoo! Travel — to London’s Wembley Stadium.

“We’re going to the game on Sunday,” a Bills fan who recently arrived in London said. “We have friends coming over. We’re tailgating, we’re doing the whole thing.”

Not typically permitted at Wembley stadium is both tailgating outside of the stadium ahead of the game and drinking inside the stadium at one’s seat. Bills fans, with the help of the NFL, are bending those rules.

After tailgating, fans to the tune of 85,000, will pack into Wembley and cheer on the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars.

“It’s a great opportunity,” another Bills fan in London said. “For us to come here, we’re season ticket holders at home, so it’s nice to actually come here and to experience the city is amazing.”

On Sunday, Wembley is sure to be just a little louder due to Buffalo’s raucous fan base.
