Tre’Davious White, Buffalo players pitch new stadium name
It’s the start of a “new era” for the Buffalo Bills and their stadium.
The Bills and the New Era Cap Company announced on Wednesday that they are ending their stadium naming and partnership deal. The two companies have had a partnership since 2016, with the deal originally set for seven years until 2023.
However, now that the deal is ending much sooner than expected, the Bills will be looking for a new stadium name alongside a sponsor before the start of the 2020 campaign.
Bills fans have already expressed their suggestions for new stadium names on social media, including “Gibraltar,” “Tops” and even “The Ralph.” Along with the avalanche of new possible names, Buffalo players also chimed in with their pitches.
Cornerback Tre’Davious White tweeted that he simply wants to honor the OGs:

Left tackle Dion Dawkins, meanwhile, playfully suggested names in accordance with his cool catchphrase.

On the other hand, reserve linebacker Tyrel Dodson also chimed in and suggested one of Western New York’s most storied groceries to be a new stadium name partner.

With fans and players suggesting new names, it seems the Bills won’t lack ideas as they pursue a new sponsor for their stadium.
It is still unknown if the team has already prospective new partners to whom they can name their arena. However, should they fail to find a partner in time for the 2020 season, they might as well consider the suggestions of their players.
