Bengals get 24-hour blackout extension

Posted Nov 5, 2009

Posted: 2:10 p.m.

The NFL today extended by 24 hours the deadline by which a sellout must be reached to permit local television coverage of Sunday’s 1 p.m. Bengals game vs. Baltimore at Paul Brown Stadium.

Games normally must be sold out 72 hours prior to kickoff for lifting of the local TV blackout, but the deadline for this week has been shortened to 48 hours, giving the club until 1 p.m. tomorrow (Friday).

“We still have approximately 3000 tickets to sell, so it’s by no means assured we can avert a blackout,” said Andrew Brown, Bengals ticket sales manager. “But we are pleased to have the chance for some great closing sales to keep our sellout streak alive.”

The Bengals have sold out their last 48 consecutive regular-season and postseason games, breaking a franchise-record streak of 43 that was set at Riverfront Stadium between 1988 and 1992.

If the game is sold out by 1 p.m. Friday, it will be televised live in the Bengals home market on CBS affiliates WKRC-TV (Channel 12) in Cincinnati, WHIO-TV (Channel 7) in Dayton and WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington, Ky. 

To purchase tickets for Baltimore, fans may call the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 866-621-TDTD (8383) or click here to order online. The Hotline will be open every day this week from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
