Despite the amount of snow the area in and around Buffalo has seen in recent days, the Bills say they still plan on hosting the Jets Sunday at 1 p.m. But, in order to make this happen, they are asking for fans’ help.

The Bills say they need to remove 220,000 tons of snow to clear the Ralph Wilson Stadium for Sunday’s game. They are seeking at least 500 fans, working three different shifts, to shovel out the stadium. For the work, the Bills will pay fans $10 per hour and offer free game tickets.

“We don’t have a maximum number [of people to shovel],” Bills vice president of operations and guest experience Andy Major said. “We can’t have too many people helping.”

The Bills tweeted the following picture of the stadium on Wednesday:
