The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday that the team will not be playing in Toronto this season. Instead, the team will host all eight home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Bills CEO Russ Brandon and Rogers Media President Keith Pelley issued a statement saying, ““The Buffalo Bills and Rogers are committed to delivering a first-class NFL experience to Canadians. As such, we have postponed for one year the scheduled 2014 regular season game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, and that game will return to Ralph Wilson Stadium. We will use this time to collectively evaluate opportunities and build on the foundation to enhance future games. We are committed to continuing our partnership and have secured a robust sponsorship agreement for the 2014 season that will bring Canadian NFL fans visibility and access to the Bills. The sponsorship includes ticketing, merchandising, media exposure, and a newly created Canada House, near Ralph Wilson Stadium, that will serve as the official pre-game Canadian tailgate zone for all Bills home games. The NFL remains very popular in Canada and we are dedicated to enriching the experience for the fans.”

The Bills had played a regular season game at the Rogers Center in Canada every season for six years.
