SANTA CLARA, Calif. (WROC) — The Bills are set to travel to play the San Francisco 49ers next week on Monday Night Football. The game, however, won’t be played in the 49ers’ stadium.

Santa Clara County, where the 49ers play, issued a ban on contact sports in the county for the next three weeks. Professional sports teams are not exempt.

As a result, the team will seemingly have to find a new place to practice and play for the foreseeable future. The 49ers-Bills game is scheduled for December 7th, well within the ban’s window.

The 49ers released a statement saying that they were aware of the ban and were working with the NFL and other partners to find a solution.

The Bills are one of two teams scheduled to play in San Francisco over the next two weeks. The Washington Football Team is supposed to play the 49ers on December 13th.
