This Sunday's 1 p.m. Bengals home game against Cleveland is officially a sellout, the club's ticket office announced Tuesday. The game is the club's 50th consecutive sellout in regular season and postseason play, and it will be aired live on CBS television affiliates in the Bengals home market of Cincinnati, Dayton and Lexington, Ky.
Though the blackout has been lifted, a limited number of single and partial-view seats remain available, and more than 6500 tickets remain available for each of the season's final two home games -- on Dec. 6 vs. Detroit and on Dec. 27 vs. Kansas City.
"We thank our fans for responding to our successful season by selling out the Cleveland game," said ticket sales manager Andrew Brown. "But it's clear we will need strong sales from this point forward to sell out for the Lions and Chiefs. We are working hard to achieve that end and hope that we can fill the stadium for our final two home games in the push for the playoffs."
The Bengals have not had a regular season or postseason home game blacked out for local TV since Nov. 9, 2003.
To purchase tickets, fans may call the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 866-621-TDTD (8383). The Ticket Hotline will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. today and from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The Hotline will be closed Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday, but will re-open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday.
