Buffalo Bills release eagerly anticipated renderings of new stadium

The Buffalo Bills have released eagerly anticipated renderings of how their new state of the art stadium may look when construction is complete on the other side of Abbott Road in Orchard Park come the autumn/fall of 2026.

The Bills, in conjunction with Legends and stadium architectural firm Populous, have left no stone unturned in covering every innovative element of new stadium design.

The exterior stadium image highlights the team’s desire for a visual identity that reflects some of the historical architecture of Buffalo, while also delivering a modern appearance.

The Bills Mafia’s influence on the game is undeniable — and as these latest renderings highlight, that passion is set to swell throughout the stadium. These visuals reflect early conceptual thinking on how the Bills brand and fan culture may be represented.
