Interest In Marv Levy Stadium Grows With Petition
Let's face it the home of the Bills needs a new name...and it should be something that represents the heritage of the Bills...something that speaks Buffalo Proud.
Naming it after Marv Levy, the coach who led our team to four consecutive AFC Championships is gathering a lot of support from Bills fans.
A petition calling to change the name of the field to Marv Levy Stadium has more than 3,000 signatures. Interest has been growing steadily from earlier this month when the petition had only a hundred or so of names on it.
Marv Levy led to the Bills to the Super Bowl from 1991 to 1994 and even though victory escaped us those years Levy’s still a legend with Bills fans, and we're not shy about making our opinion of him known.
The following is a letter recently sent to team owners Terry and Kim Pegula:

Orchard Park, NY 14127
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Pegula,
As the Buffalo Bills move on from their stadium naming rights agreement with New Era Corp., there is no doubt that you already have many corporate special interests offering millions of dollars for this opportunity to promote their brands.
As lifelong Bills fans, however, we are writing to ask that you instead rename the stadium in honor of Hall of Fame Coach Marv Levy, the man who led the Buffalo Bills to four consecutive AFC Championships in the early 1990s.
At 95 years of age, Marv Levy is a living legend. Throughout the six decades he spent working in professional and college football, Marv Levy’s decency, resilience, and intellectual curiosity were unparalleled. Indeed, they still are today. Renaming the stadium in his honor would be a fitting tribute to this great man and a worthy capstone on his football career.
We thank you for your attention to this matter and your continued stewardship of this proud NFL franchise.
