The Cincinnati Bengals sold out six of eight games in 2012, announcing on Monday that more reductions will take place next season.
The Cincinnati Bengals have reduced their ticket prices for a second consecutive year, the team announced on 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.
"When we reduced some sections to $40 for 2012, the demand was high and they sold out quickly," said Bengals ticket manager Andrew Brown. "Our fans saw it as a great value for an NFL game, and we will expand the number of those seats. We also think fans will respond very positively to some new opportunities for this year, including seats as low as $50 in the first rows of the upper deck. If you’ve been in those seats before for any stadium event, you know what a great vantage point that is."
However for the first time in four years, the team also announced a section along the sidelines in the lower bowl will increase from $80 to $85.
"These are the most sought-after seats in the house, and our analysis of the market shows heightened demand for this area, justifying this first price increase since 2009," Brown said.
The remaining 45 percent of Paul Brown Stadium will remain unchanged.
Cincinnati will host the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and New York Jets. The schedule will be announced in a couple of months.
