'Suite Dreams at New Era Field' will kick off unique fan experiences surrounding Buffalo sporting events
Pegula Sports and Entertainment on Thursday announced the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres have entered a partnership with Airbnb that will create unique experiences for fans surrounding Buffalo sporting events. The partnership kicks off with the "Suite Dreams at New Era Field" contest, in which a winning fan will be given a Bills experience unlike any other (including an overnight stay in a New Era Field suite in advance of the Bills Oct. 29 home game against Oakland).
"Airbnb has created an experience that transforms this Bills game into an unforgettable weekend for our winning fan," said Erica Muhleman, PSE's executive vice president of business development. "Airbnb has a mission of facilitating unique travel experiences around the world, and we are thrilled that our fans will get a chance to enjoy extremely rare opportunities, beginning with a chance to experience New Era Field in a once-in-a-lifetime way."
The "Suite Dreams at New Era Field" contest is currently underway online through a custom Airbnb listing on www.BuffaloBills.com
. Fans are invited to generate a written submission proclaiming why they deserve to be the winner of this one-of-a-kind experience, in which they enter to win the Airbnb experience at New Era Field. The winning fan and a guest will arrive at New Era Field on Saturday, Oct. 28, and enjoy VIP experiences including a behind-the-scenes look at the stadium, followed by a catered dinner from (716) Food and Sport and an overnight stay in the suite. The experience continues on game day with a 12-person tailgate catered by Dinosaur BBQ, a Bills store shopping spree, a meet-and-greet with Bills Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas and a visit to the field to watch players warm up. The group will then head to the suite to watch the Bills take on Oakland, before capping off the day with postgame field passes.
"We are thrilled to partner with Pegula Sports and Entertainment to extend an exciting opportunity to a lucky Bills fan," said Josh Meltzer, head of New York public policy. "The Airbnb host community in Buffalo is growing as more travelers learn what we've known all along: Buffalo is a great place to live and play. Go Bills! Go Sabres!"
