Bengals Will Have A Slightly Different Look Next Season And So Will Their Ticket Prices

The team is changing ticket prices, lowering the cost for a preseason game, and enhancing customer service.

The Bengals are changing their ticket prices for 2016 at Paul Brown Stadium, increasing slightly the cost of attending a regular-season game and lowering the cost to get into a preseason game.

The Bengals also are making their first foray into the variable pricing model that more than two-thirds of NFL teams use, but the Bengals’ version offers lower-priced tickets for the two pre-season games. Season tickets can be purchased for nine games (seven regular season) instead of the usual 10 because one designated home game will be played in London.

In addition to the new pricing structure, the Bengals also are enhancing customer service with the launch of a new Season Ticket Member Services Department. Anybody who purchases a ticket plan is immediately assigned an account manager from the new department as a point of contact who will be prepared to discuss various client questions.

From the Bengals:

The Bengals today set 2016 Season Ticket Pricing which introduces a two-tier model – one tier for preseason games and another for regular-season games.

The Bengals today set 2016 Season Ticket Pricing which introduces a two-tier model – one tier for preseason games and another for regular-season games.

“We are adopting a model this year that prices the preseason games at a lower point than regular-season games,” said Katie Blackburn, Bengals Executive Vice-President. “It’s a growing trend across the NFL, and we want to address the interests of fans who have expressed a desire for these options. We look forward to having a great 2016 season with an even stronger Season Ticket base.”

Reserve seats for 2016 preseason games will range from $23-$62, a significant drop from the $35-$95 range for 2015. A complete roundup of 2016 Season Ticket pricing can be accessed by following this link:

Following a 12-4 Bengals season – tied for best in the AFC – Season Ticket Members will see a modest increase in their average ticket price. Per the Fan Cost Index, attending a Bengals game will still be more than $10 below the NFL average.

With the Bengals hosting the Washington Redskins in London next season, Season Ticket Members can expect to receive a renewal notice with pricing to reflect a nine-game package instead of the traditional 10 games – meaning fans across the board will pay less in 2016 than they did in 2015.

The 2016 regular-season home schedule features AFC North Division rivals Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Baltimore, along with the AFC West Champion Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins. Dates, kickoff times and preseason game information are yet to be determined.

Today’s move continues a documented trend of great value for Bengals Season Ticket Members. In 2015, the Bengals were noted by TickPick as having the second-lowest cost per win for fans among NFL teams.

“Season Ticket Members receive the lowest possible price per seat, so the time is right to lock in the best value now,” said Duane Haring, Bengals Director of Ticket Sales and Service. “A new feature we’re proud to offer for 2016 is an enhanced service department, centered around providing top customer service and accessibility.”

Account holders will have an Account Manager dedicated to their Season Ticket related needs and a singular point of contact within the organization. Fans interested in becoming Season Ticket Members should call the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 866-621-TDTD (8383) or visit
