About Buffalo

Sports

Excited fans at a Buffalo Bills game

Buffalo is home to two major league sports teams—the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabres—and some of the world’s most spirited fans. Devotion to the hometown teams runs deep, creating a strong civic bond among Western New Yorkers across all walks of life.

Our sports scene is not limited to football and hockey, however.

Enjoy baseball? Cheer on the Buffalo Bisons, a Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets.

If lacrosse is your sport, root on the Buffalo Bandits, our championship National Lacrosse League Team.
