ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have signed a five-year agreement to continue holding training camp at St. John Fisher College in suburban Rochester.

The extension was announced on Tuesday after the Bills contract expired following the end of training camp in August.

The Bills have been holding camp at St. John Fisher since 2000, after previously being based at Fredonia State University, about 45 minutes south of Buffalo.

The team made the switch in a bid to expand its market and draw fans from a more populated region. Rochester is centrally located, about an hour’s drive east of Buffalo and west of Syracuse.
