Sunday's game a sellout; blackout lifted

Posted Oct 7, 2010

This Sunday’s 1 p.m. Bengals home game against Tampa Bay is officially a sellout, the club’s ticket office announced Thursday. The game is the club’s 55th consecutive sellout in regular season and postseason play, and it will air live on Fox19 (WXIX-TV) in Cincinnati.

In spite of the blackout being lifted, there are seats remaining for the game. They can be purchased by phone through the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 513-621-8383 (TDTD). Additionally, tickets may be ordered at any time today through Saturday by clicking here. Also, tickets may be purchased in person at the Bengals ticket office at Paul Brown Stadium on game day beginning at 9 a.m.

Fox19, Kroger and Fifth Third Bank led the way in helping ensure the blackout would be lifted, and the Bengals purchased tickets for distribution to local military families. Additionally, Bud Light, AT&T and Gold Star played key roles in assisting with efforts to allow the game to be aired live.

Kroger will be distributing Bengals tickets in conjunction with the purchase of something “Pink” at select Kroger stores (see below). The first 50 people in line at the designated stores who purchase something “Pink” will receive two tickets to Sunday’s game. Proceeds for almost all “Pink” items in Kroger stores support breast cancer research.

The game will also air live on the other two Fox affiliates in the Bengals home market -- WRGT-TV (Channel 45) in Dayton and WDKY-TV (Channel 56) in Lexington, Ky.

The Bengals have not had a regular season or postseason home game blacked out for local TV since Nov. 9, 2003. The streak of 55 consecutive sellouts is a franchise record.
