CINCINNATI - The Bengals are adding a "modest increase" to their average season-ticket prices in 2016, the club announced Monday.
Season-ticket prices for seven regular-season games (one fewer than usual) and two preseason games will range from $340 to $922. That's an average of $37 to $102.
Per the Fan Cost Index, attending a Bengals game will still be more than $10 below the NFL average, the club said in a statement.
With the Bengals hosting Washington in London next season, season-ticket members will receive a renewal notice with pricing to reflect a nine-game package instead of the traditional 10 games.
A new two-tier pricing plan for 2016 season tickets will mean higher prices for regular-season games and lower prices for preseason games, according to the club.
“We are adopting a model this year that prices the preseason games at a lower point than regular-season games,” Executive Vice-President Katie Blackburn said. “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."
Reserve seats for 2016 preseason games will range from $23 to $62 - down from $35 to $95 in 2015.
The 2016 regular-season home schedule features Denver, Philadelphia, Buffalo and Miami along with AFC North rivals Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Baltimore. Dates, times and preseason game information are yet to be determined.
In 2015, the Bengals had the second-lowest ticket cost per win among NFL teams, according to TickPick.
“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, 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.”
