Bengals ticket prices to increase for 2014 season

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Prices are rising at Paul Brown Stadium for the 2014 season.

Following a third-straight Bengals playoff season, the Bengals have announced that prices will rise by $2.30 per seat from prices during the 2013 season. The Bengals say that nearly half of Paul Brown Stadium's season ticket locations will not have any price increase.

Unchanged from the 2012 season, tickets will be available for as low as $40 per game. Price increases will be in place on 55 percent of reserve seats, and remain flat for 45 percent of the seats.

Sales will open at 9 a.m. Wednesday through the Bengals ticket Hotline at 513-621-TDTD or at Bengals.com.

The Cincinnati Bengals state that ticket prices in 2013 were 20 percent below the NFL average.

"We are sensitive to increasing prices and worked to limit the increases to those areas of the stadium in the most demand and for which tickets on the secondary market are re-sold well above the Bengals price," says Bengals ticket manager Andrew Brown. "For those areas where we have the most open inventory, we kept prices flat so that the seats will be attractive and accessible to fans, available at the right prices to help us to reach the goal of selling out our games."

Sideline seats in the lower bowl will go up from $85 to $90.

"These are the most sought-after seats in the house," says Brown, "and our analysis of the market shows heightened demand, with fans paying well above face value on the secondary market for these seats."

No locations will be increased more than $5 per seat. The only areas of increase will be prime sections in the lower rows of the Canopy Level (from $68 to $73), the corners and end zones on field level (from $72 to $75) and the sidelines on field level (from $85 to $90).

All other areas will be priced the same as in 2013.
