What Does it Cost to Attend a Cincinnati Bengals Game?

With the Bengals being one of the more competitive teams in the NFL this year, they are considered by many to be contenders to win the shaky AFC North division. Being able to attend a game at Paul Brown Stadium is one of the year’s most memorable days, especially if you are able to watch them pick up a win. The good news is that attending a Bengal’s game is one of the cheapest tickets available in the NFL, with the total price for a ticket, a beer and a hot dog averaging about $160 per person.

Ticket prices are among the lowest in the NFL

With the median price of a ticket going for $129, this is not really bad, especially if the Bengals remain competitive. That was done by a survey at the beginning of the season, but if we’re going to be realistic, that number could double or even triple if they continue to be contenders. One reason for this year’s low ticket prices is the team’s frustrating performances over the last few years. Of course, trying to get a ticket to the Steelers-Bengals game on October 14th will be either impossible or cost you at least 3 days pay. As an average ticket holder you can get into the stadium 90 minutes in advance. One thing to note about going to the game: once you are in you can’t leave and return.

Concessions are very reasonable

Paul brown Stadium was the first NFL team to use technology so fans can place concession orders on their smartphones and have them delivered to their seats. That is correct. As for the prices, the price of a beer at Paul Brown stadium is a very reasonable $5 for a 14 ounce cup (delivery charge not included). Even if it is freezing cold, beer is the first choice for fans who want to keep warm while cheering on their team, but you have to be at least 21. A hot dog is just as reasonable – only $5.50. You won’t be able to buy beer after the 3rd quarter, so you will want to have an alternative beverage choice in mind if the game is close. There is no possibility of bringing anything larger than a 12 inch by 12 inch clear plastic bag into the stadium, so you will have to buy all your eats and drinks inside. There is at least one concession you will have to make when choosing to attend the game: “Displays of affection not appropriate in a public setting” – and that includes the stadium parking lot.

Parking prices are manageable

You can expect to pay $22 to park your car in the vicinity of the stadium. According to the team’s website, “The lots in close proximity to Paul Brown Stadium are sold on a season basis.” This means that if you are not a season ticket holder there isn’t much chance of getting a parking space very close to the stadium. The available parking is north of Third Street, and that’s where the prices start to jump. Well, there is the lot at 690 E. Pete Rose Way you can get for a very cheap $6 per game, but that lot is some 9 miles away. Otherwise, your two main choices are the Hyatt Regency hotel valet parking, which comes in at the average $23 stub price, and 277 W. 5th Street which will cost you $10 more. Both lots are a 3 mile walk to the stadium.

Overall, the location and ticket prices are very affordable, if you don’t mind walking a few miles in the dead of winter. The delivery to your seat option is one of the best ideas in the NFL, so you don’t have to miss a single play. Due to security reasons, the NFL has some very strict entrance policies, so expect to get scanned, and leave your video recorders and cameras at home because you will not be allowed to bring them into the stadium. They do have a few other odd policies in addition to the non-PDA rule, so you should go to the team’s website to check on more specific prohibited behaviors if you are inclined to celebrate a score or a win in an unorthodox manner. That apparently is reserved strictly for the players.
