Bengals ticket sales for 2006 have met NFL requirements to declare a sellout for the entire season at Paul Brown Stadium, the club's ticket office reported today. All 10 home games, including both preseason contests, will be televised live in the Cincinnati home market (including Dayton, Ohio and Lexington, Ky.).
Though the club has met the threshold set by the NFL for lifting local TV blackouts, approximately 350 season tickets remain available for sale. The ticket office reports it expects that supply to be exhausted within a week.
The Bengals have sold out their last 20 regular season and postseason games at Paul Brown Stadium (official capacity, 65,500). The streak dates back to the last three games of the 2003 season.
The franchise's longest streak of regular and postseason sellouts was 43 straight, at Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field. The streak began with the 1988 season opener and ran through the 1992 home finale.
The current regular and postseason sellout streak will stand at 28 at the conclusion of the 2006 regular season.
