Bengals announce season-ticket prices

For the second straight year the Cincinnati Bengals are lowering the price for season tickets in a number of sections of Paul Brown Stadium, the club announced Monday.

Price reductions will be in effect in 20 stadium sections for 2013. A number of sections priced last year at $50 per game for season tickets will be reduced to $40, and many sections priced at $60 last year will be reduced to $50.

For the first time in four years, some ticket prices will increase for 2013. Sideline seats in the lower bowl will go from $80 to $85.

The price for the remaining reserve seats, representing 45 percent of the Paul Brown Stadium seats, will remain unchanged.

“As an organization we are committed to having a full stadium for every game to give us a competitive advantage,” said Katie Blackburn, Bengals executive vice-president. “We are coming off a good year, we have been to the playoffs two years in a row, and we have five 2012 playoff teams coming to Cincinnati this season. We believe that our 2013 pricing model, in conjunction with the strong home schedule, will be very attractive to fans and will make tickets available at the right prices to help us to reach that goal.”

The Bengals 2013 home schedule includes five playoff teams — Baltimore, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Minnesota and New England. Cleveland, Pittsburgh and the New York Jets also will visit PBS.

Season tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Wednesday at or by calling 513-621-8383.
