The Cincinnati Bengals have announced single-game tickets for the 2015 season will go on sale this Saturday, June 27. Single-game ticket sales will begin at 10 a.m. and initially will be available in three ways: (1) online via bengals.com, (2) by phone through the Bengals’ Ticket Hotline at 866-621-8383 or through Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, or (3) in person at Ticketmaster outlets (visit ticketmaster.com for information about locations). Beginning at 9 a.m. Mon., June 29, single-game tickets also will be available in person at the Paul Brown Stadium ticket office or by phone through the Bengals’ Ticket Hotline at 866-621-8383.
The Bengals’ 2015 home lineup includes two national prime-time games -- just the fourth such instance in franchise history -- on Nov. 5 vs. Cleveland (Thursday night on NFL Network) and on Nov. 16 vs. Houston (Monday night on ESPN). This will be the first the time the Bengals have at two national prime-time games in back to back seasons. This season’s two prime-time home games are fixed, not subject to flexible scheduling.
Cincinnati announced in February several areas at Paul Brown Stadium will undergo a significant ticket reduction for fans thinking about purchasing season tickets this year. There are some areas that are going for $35/game, as well as others that will see a $15 reduction, going from $75/game to $60. Their reasoning is simple economics. If they lower the prices, the team will increase their season ticket base -- which took a significant hit after the team's four-win season in 2010. Because the season ticket base is so small, the team is faced with a potential television black out every week (or so it seems). Last year the team implemented the 85 percent threshold rule and only sold out a handful of home games.
"We have a good team coming back, one of only four to reach the playoffs the last four years, and we have an outstanding stadium that will be significantly upgraded," said Jeff Berding, Bengals Director of Sales and Public Affairs. "And we have set pricing with the goal of increasing our season ticket base. We believe the new $35 locations are an exceptional value that will sell quickly, and there are many other options also available, with great seating on all levels."
