The agreement calls for $850 million in New York State and local funding, the largest taxpayer contribution ever for a National Football League facility.

State Senator Sean Ryan, a Democrat from Buffalo who represents the district where the new stadium will be constructed, said he was satisfied with the final deal.

“Subsidies for sport stadiums are a bitter pill,” he said. “Nobody is happy about doing this, but this is the best deal we could expect under the circumstances.”
