Donald Trump wants to keep Buffalo Bills in New York

Published Add your comment

New York business mogul, Donald Trump has expressed interest in investing in the Buffalo Bills following the death of Ralph Wilson last week.

Trump, talking on WBEN radio in Buffalo said: 

“People have actually talked to me about the Bills. I mean, the group of people called me — would I be interested in investing, and I’ll take a look at it. I mean, I look at a lot of things. I’ll take a look at it.”

The news should be welcomed by Bills fans in western New York as the man behind 'The Apprentice' also said that he would want the team to stay in Buffalo.

"If it were me I’d keep the team in Buffalo,” he said. “I think it’s something that is really vital to the area. … It would be catastrophic, in my opinion, if Buffalo lost the Buffalo Bills.”

Following the death of Wilson, rumors had been abound that the Bills were likely to leave Buffalo in the next few seasons with the lease on their stadium due to end in 2019.

The Wilson family had been integral in keeping the team in the area with Ralph among the founding owners of the American Football League which became the NFL.

In the meantime, the team will be placed in a trust which will control the franchise's interest before a sale can be completed. No quick sale is expected however, and it remains to be seen whether Trump's interest will turn into anything more tangible in the coming months and years.
