The Bengals are introducing numerous features designed to enhance the gameday experience at Paul Brown Stadium, including a revamped guest services approach, a street team that interacts with fans, additional elements in the Jungle Zone, a redesigned gameday section in the Official Bengals App and new stadium speakers.
"Who Dey Team" guest service representatives will be available throughout the stadium to ensure fans have a positive gameday experience. Who Dey Team members will greet fans as they arrive and are available to assist fans and answer any questions.
"Bengals Street Team" members are key brand ambassadors to get fans hyped on gameday. The Bengals Street Team will be on the field during the game carrying flags and interacting with fans throughout the day with prizes and giveaways in tailgate lots and the Jungle Zone.
The Jungle Zone is the centerpiece of the pregame experience with the tailgate party getting underway three hours prior to kickoff. Located on the east plaza level of Paul Brown Stadium, the Jungle Zone features food, drinks, giveaways and family-friendly activities including face painting. New games this year include Ninja Warrior races, football throwing contests, inflatable axe throwing and Fowling (bowling with a football). A professional world record holding juggler will perform in the Jungle Zone on Sunday.
The Official Bengals App features a redesigned gameday section with easy to access information about the game, including tickets, traffic, parking, clear bag policy and information on the match-up. Fans can get accurate directions to the stadium and surrounding parking lots and garages through the Bengals app or by downloading the Waze app.
Paul Brown Stadium completed the second of a three-year upgrade to the in-bowl sound system. This year's project entailed the installation of approximately 120 speakers on the lower level and 70 new speakers on the canopy level with additional 21" subwoofers on each side of the canopy level.
BENGALS GAMES RANK BEST VALUE IN NFL
The Bengals provide the best value for fans according to Team Marketing Report's Fan Cost Index, which calculates what a family of four would typically pay to attend an NFL game. The report compares prices for all 32 NFL teams looking at the average price of four tickets combined with four sodas, four hot dogs, two beers and two souvenir caps, plus a parking spot.
"Providing great value to our fans who attend games at Paul Brown Stadium is a top priority," said Duane Haring, Bengals Director of Ticket Sales and Service. "Having the lowest Fan Cost Index in the NFL is one of many items that really highlight the emphasis we as an organization have placed on our fans."
