Buffalo loves its sports. Just a stone’s throw from the casino is KeyBank Center, home to the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres. Right across the street is the $170 million HarborCenter complex, featuring two NHL-sized rinks for college and amateur tournaments and the two story, (716) Sports Bar – perfect for watching a Sabres or Bills game.

Of course, there’s no substitute for tailgating and watching the Bills game with 70,000 of your closest friends on autumn Sundays at Ralph Wilson stadium. Combine that with the Buffalo Bisons AAA Baseball and Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team, and you can get your game on throughout the year in Buffalo.

 

The Bills annually entertain approximately 750,000 fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium, produce the region’s number-one rated sports TV programming, have one of the NFL’s largest fan clubs (Bills Backers), and host the most visited team website in WNY. Open Year-Round Games from August-January.

Move over Detroit! Buffalo is Hockeytown, U.S.A.!

ESPN The Magazine Ranks the Buffalo Sabres the No. 1 Sports Franchise. Despite Detroit’s claim to the title, Buffalo can make a pretty good case for being designated “Hockeytown, U.S.A.” ESPN The Magazine ranked the Buffalo Sabres No. 1 in their Big 4 professional sports franchises “Ultimate Standings” poll for “giving fans the most back for the emotion, money and time they invest in their teams.”

At the 18,500 seat KeyBank Center in downtown Buffalo, the high-flying National Hockey League action is matched by one of the best fan experiences in sport. You’ve come to watch hockey? Buffalo is the place!

Situated in downtown Buffalo between high-rise office buildings and the Erie Canal Harbor, KeyBank Center is easily accessible from the New York State Thruway and by the Metro Rail line.

If you have time before or after a game, stop and visit Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino – it’s just a few blocks away!
