CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals fans will be able to smoke 'em if they got 'em — as long as they go outside the stadium.
The National Football League club has set a new policy to accommodate smokers, allowing them to come back in after going out to smoke. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Bengals officials plan to set up fenced-off areas outside four Paul Brown Stadium gates. They will use hand stamps or some other form of identifier to let smokers back in.
Fans used to go out to concourse areas for in-game smoking, but Ohio passed a statewide ban in 2007 on smoking inside public places. The Bengals say people smoking at their seats are subject to immediate ejection, while those trying to sneak smokes in bathrooms or elsewhere get one warning.
