CINCINNATI - For the second consecutive year, Bengals' season tickets for 2013 will cost less than the previous year in many sections of Paul Brown Stadium.
But for the first time in four years, some ticket prices will increase next season, too.
Price reductions will take 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."
Meanwhile, 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.
Sales for 2013 tickets will open at 9 a.m. Wednesday through the Bengals Ticket Hotline at (513) 621-TDTD (8383), or through the "tickets" tab on the home page of Bengals.com.
The five 2012 playoff teams on the home schedule include Baltimore, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Minnesota and New England. The schedule is rounded out with the New York Jets and division rivals Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
There will also be two home preseason games, one of those against Indianapolis.
