In Game

Sabres fans haven’t had a lot to cheer about lately, but that doesn’t stop them from being among the best supporters in the NHL. Buffalo is home to some of the longest suffering fans in sports due to the Bills and Sabres lack of success, but that doesn’t get them down. All throughout Buffalo, you’ll see people adorned in the Sabres blue and gold, and once you enter the arena things will reach a fever pitch with the fans cheering on their boys regardless of the score.

The Sabres commitment to showcasing the team’s history and heritage also makes attending a Sabres game an excellent experience for hockey fans. All around the arena you’ll find tributes and homages to Sabres legends of the past. The Alumni Plaza outside the arena pays tribute to every Sabres player of the past, and its centerpiece statue of The French Connection is a must see for anyone who loves hockey. Inside the arena, you’ll be treated to murals and retired number banners as well as the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame, which honors greats from the area in a variety of different sports. Between the Alumni Plaza and Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame, you’ll want to arrive at least an hour before the game so you can see everything.

The neighborhood surrounding KeyBank Center is quickly becoming one of the best pregame destinations around thanks to the development of the HarborCenter. The HarborCenter is home to several shopping and dining options and even features a Tim Horton’s that pays tributes to Horton and the Sabres.

With the excellent historical displays and the strong fan support you would expect Sabres tickets to cost an arm and a leg, but they are rather affordable making a trip to Buffalo a must for hockey fans everywhere.
