The Cincinnati Bengals have rolled out the lowest price tickets they have ever offered since Paul Brown Stadium was built 20 years ago.

You can see the team this year for just $20 a game, with the new Jungle Pass.

So is it worth considering? And what are the catches? That's what we wanted to find out.

Duane Haring, Ticketing Director of the Cincinnati Bengals explained that "a Jungle Pass is a new ticket option for fans looking to get into a game for just $20, and the package gets you into all 10 of our games."

How it works 

If you purchase the $200 pass, you will get tickets to all 10 home games including the 2 preseason games, for just $20 per game (there are no shorter versions of it).

Fans like Sharon Utz and her 12 year old grandson Dylan, shopping at the Bengals Pro Shop, said  it sounds like a real deal.

"I think its a great price!  Super cheap," they agreed.

There are a few catches, however.

  • You have to sit in the top 5 rows, in the upper corners (at least you are covered by the canopy in case of rain).
  • These are digital-only tickets, that will be sent to your phone on GameDay.
  • They are not transferrable, meaning you cannot sell them. The Bengals are doing this to protect existing season ticket fans, who would not want other people to be reselling $20 tickets at highly inflated prices.

If you can't make a game, you lose that game ticket.

But Duane Haring says it should not be a big concern.  "Even if you miss a game and lose a ticket, you are just out $20," he said.

As for the upper deck, he said "Paul Brown has great sight lines, and every seat has a good view."

Bottom line, $20 admission to an NFL game in 2018 is a great deal. If price has kept you from Bengals games, you may want to consider this, so you don't waste your money.
