ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills are going smoke-free in banning all smoking at Ralph Wilson Stadium next season.
CEO Russ Brandon said the team made the decision as part of two changes it's making to its fan behavior policy. Previously, fans were allowed to smoke in several designated areas just inside the entry gates, but outside the stadium bowl.
The team also announced its parking lots will open four hours before kickoff, putting the team in line with NFL recommendations. The Bills' lots previously opened five hours before kickoff.
The lots will continue to close two hours after the game.
