Las Luces de Buffalo

For the first time since 2018, the Bisons have added a new alternate identity and will take the field three times this season as Luces de Buffalo,’ or ‘Lights of Buffalo.’ Created in collaboration with the Hispanic Heritage Council of WNY and as part of minor league baseball’s Copa de la Diversión™, the ‘Luces de Buffalo’ name and uniform design celebrates and brings awareness to the many amazing Hispanic and Latino cultures living and thriving in Western New York. The ‘Luces de Buffalo’ concept recognizes the history of 1901 Pan-American Exposition (World’s Fair) in Buffalo, the city’s moniker of the ‘City of Light’ and the indigenous roots of the many Hispanic and Latino people living today in WNY.

The Bisons will be Luces de Buffalo on May 26 (Family Funday, Kids Run the Bases), July 25 (Luces de Buffalo Banner Giveaway) and September 6 (Hispanic Heritage Night, Fireworks) and all three games will feature special food offerings as well as music, entertainment and community spotlights. Luces de Buffalo tickets and official on-field caps and jerseys are now available at

Tickets that Give Back –‘Good Neighbors Wednesday’

Buffalo is the 'City of Good Neighbors,' and now coming together to celebrate and cheer on the Bisons can directly help out the towns that the ticket buyers live in. In 2024, all Wednesday Bisons home games will be known as “Good Neighbors Wednesdays,” presented by Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union, where a portion of every ticket sold will go back to the fans’ town! Plus, the town from which the most per capita ticket sales comes from by the end of the season will also receive a $2,000 grant from the Buffalo Bisons Charitable Foundation to benefit their youth sports or recreational departments.

There are 12 “Good Neighbors Wednesdays’ in 2024. For more information or to purchase Good Neighbors Wednesday tickets, fans should visit

The New Concession Items at Sahlen Field

After debuting at the ballpark in 2023, Alexandra’s Pierogis returns with two new offerings, Mini Dumplings in Buffalo Chicken and Beef flavors. Fans will also be able to choose from Beef Short Rib Skewers and Crab Cake Sliders with Coleslaw at concession stands in 2024 and find out what the all new Super Weekly Nachos are, a different style of nachos that will change each Bisons homestand during the season.

A Western New York favorite, Weber’s Mustard will now be served throughout the ballpark… the perfect way to top your Sahlen’s ‘Grilled for You’ Hot Dogs. And for desert, how about some more nachos… Ice Cream Nachos that is, with fans being able to select their favorite soft-serve ice cream in a nacho-style dish filled with wafer crackers and caramel sauce.

For fans that want to get their food and get right back to the action, the Bisons will be introducing a new Grab n’ Go Stop. Fans can get a quick drink, such as Coca-Cola’s New Coca-Cola Spiced of Labatt’s Blue and Blue Light, ready-made sandwiches, or something for the sweet tooth, like their favorite Little Debbie desert, and get right back to their seats.

For fans dining in Sahlen Field’s gameday rental suites, the full ballpark menu will now also include a Charcuterie Board, Tater Rings with Truffle Oil & Grated Parmesan and Crab Cakes with Remoulade.

Sahlen Field is Cashless (except for at the Box Office)

In an effort to increase overall ballpark convenience and to further streamline and enhance fan experiences throughout the ballpark, Sahlen Field will be ‘cashless’ for concessions, merchandise, vending and at the Consumer’s Pub at the Park restaurant at Bisons games in 2024. Bisons fans can continue to use all major American and Canadian credit card and US debit cards as well as secure forms of digital payments such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

It is important to note the Sahlen Field Box Office will still accept both cash along with credit card payments towards the purchase of all ticket options, including single-game tickets and the full selection of Bisons ticket package options. As part of this transition, the Bisons have added 30% more payment devices to assist with the efficiency of all purchases.
