Training Camp



After a successful debut at Paul Brown Stadium in 2012, Bengals Training Camp returns to PBS in 2013, with open practices running from July 26-Aug. 15. Those practices will be free and open to the public, and like last year, they will offer access to the team not available during the regular season.

Bengals Training Camp kicks off at PBS at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 25 with a special Bengals Pep Rally, which is free and open to all fans. Featuring local band "The Rusty Griswolds," the Pep Rally will provide opportunities to meet this year’s team, hear from head coach Marvin Lewis, and obtain autographs from Bengals alumni.

Camp continues with practices open to the public starting on Friday, July 26. Most practices will be held on the practice fields just west of PBS. However, added to the schedule this year will be two 6 p.m. "Family Night" practices inside the stadium on Aug. 1 and Aug. 11, which will feature enhanced attractions for children.

Parking for all practices is available in the public parking lots located adjacent to PBS at established prices.

ADMISSION GUIDELINES

All training camp practices (other than the two Family Night sessions inside PBS) will be held on the Bengals practice fields. Total capacity for the practice fields this year will include 1500 bleacher seats, plus additional room for fans to stand along the sidelines. No passes will be required to enter.

Fans will be allowed to bring small soft-sided coolers, unopened bottles of water and food into all practices. Concessions and Bengals merchandise will be available to purchase. No chairs or other temporary seating will be permitted.

 

FIFTH THIRD BANK VIP SEATING

The first 53 fans entering the gates to the practice fields to show a Fifth Third Bank debit card or credit card will be upgraded to the Fifth Third Reserved Bleacher Seats. This promotion does not apply to the two practices inside the stadium.

 

AUTOGRAPHS

At the conclusion of every practice on the practice fields, groups of players will be available for autographs for 15 minutes after practice ends. For the safety of pedestrians, no autographs will be permitted as players enter or leave the practice fields. At the conclusion of the Family Night practices inside PBS, the entire roster of players will be available for autographs after practice ends.

 

HANDICAP ACCESSIBILITY

Handicapped patrons do have access to training camp practices both on the practice fields and inside the stadium. Paul Brown Stadium has ADA seating, and arrangements will be made with stadium security to provide autograph opportunities post-practice for these fans. The practice fields are accessible at the public entrance on the northeast corner of the complex via eight steps and then a flat walking path to the public bleachers. Fans in wheelchairs will be directed to the team entrance at the southeast corner of the complex where a ramp allows access to the fields and then near to the bleachers. Parking is available in Lot 1 or Lot E, which have marked handicapped spaces.
