Pegulas takeover at Buffalo Bills confirmed

Terry and Kim Pegula reveal that they are delighted and honoured to have been confirmed as the new owners of the Buffalo Bills.

Terry Pegula has admitted that it is an honour for he and his wife Kim to have been confirmed as the new owners of the Buffalo Bills.

The NFL owners unanimously voted in favour of their takeover of the club, which was confirmed on Friday in an announcement by the team.

The Pegulas bought the club from the Wilson family for a fee in the region of $1.4b [£871m], following the death of former Bills owner Ralph Wilson earlier this year.

They wrote in a letter to Buffalo's supporters: "Today marks a historic day both for our family and for the city we love. As the new owners of the Buffalo Bills, it's with great privilege that we can say to all the fans: The Bills are here to stay.

"We are grateful to Ralph Wilson for choosing Buffalo 54 years ago and we look forward to continuing the Buffalo Bills legacy. We are truly honoured to represent this team and everything it stands for and are dedicated to sustaining the long-term success of this franchise.

"Our family continues to be inspired by the work ethic, loyalty and character of those who live in this great region. We understand the commitment needed to meet the level of dedication fans have shown this team. A new chapter begins today for both the city and our family."

The Pegulas also own NHL side the Buffalo Sabres.
