BENGALS AND PLUSBLUE TEAM UP TO CHARGE FANS' PHONES
Bengals fans no longer have to worry about cell phones dying while attending games this season. The team and PlusBlue Solutions have partnered to ensure that any fan in Paul Brown Stadium will have access to a charging device if needed.
PlusBlue will be providing two different services, located in four easy-to-access stands throughout the stadium.
"Keeping fans connected and powered-up is an important part of the today's game day experience," said Michael Bagby of PlusBlue. "Our service is very practical and does not detract from fans enjoying a great product on the field. They can now charge in their pocket or purse while also cheering loudly, helping create a distinct home-field advantage."
The first option is cutting-edge portable chargers that are available for rent using credit or debit cards. The second allows fans to use cash to leave phones at a charging valet, safeguarded by PlusBlue employees for as long as desired. Charging stations will be located on Sideline West, Sideline East, Canopy West section 313, and Canopy East section 343.
"With the addition of Wi-Fi throughout Paul Brown Stadium, we felt that providing an option for our fans to charge their mobile devices was important," said Jeff Berding, Bengals director of sales and public affairs. "With PlusBlue's experience throughout the region using this model with the Reds, Western & Southern Open, Riverbend and Ohio State, we are confident that their services will be a great addition for our fans in today's mobile world."
The portable chargers can charge any electronic device more quickly than a standard outlet. Bengals fans will never again miss any action due to being tethered to an outlet during the game. Fans also will have availability to check fantasy football or upload lasting memories to social media.
