Buffalo Bills reportedly eyeing Austin for team relocation

Everyone wants to be in Austin—tech, celebs and now sports. At least that's what it looks like.

In the midst of a first season for Austin FC, the city's first major league professional sports team, the Buffalo Bills are reportedly looking at a possible move to Austin.


The news comes from ESPN's Seth Wickersham, who reports the NFL team is saying it is considering a move from New York to Austin, possibly to push public funding of its new $1.5 billion stadium.

Austin was without a major pro team until Austin FC came to town. While all eyes have been on Austin's "boomtown" status, the city isn't exactly expected to get an NFL team with two other major teams in the state—the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.

Nevertheless, the governor and mayor responded to the rumor.
