Bills season-ticket sales down only 1.7 percent

By Mark Gaughan

The Buffalo Bills announced their season-ticket sales are 42,540 for the 2013 season. That's down 725 season tickets from last year -- or 1.67 percent.

Sunday's season opener against the New England Patriots is sold out.

On one hand, the total is believed to be in the bottom quarter of the NFL. (The league doesn't release season-ticket rankings.) On the other hand, to stay essentially flat after a 13th straight non-playoff season and while undergoing another rebuilding re-start is not too bad.

The Bills' season-ticket totals the past 10 years:

  • 2013 -- 42,540
  • 2012 -- 43,265
  • 2011 -- 37,355
  • 2010 -- 43,925
  • 2009 -- 55,194
  • 2008 -- 56,011
  • 2007 -- 48,236
  • 2006 -- 43,187
  • 2005 -- 47,246
  • 2004 -- 42,553
