This Sunday's 1 p.m. Bengals home game against Miami is officially a sellout, the club's ticket office announced Friday. The game is the club's 56th consecutive sellout in regular season and postseason play, and it will air live on Local 12 (WKRC-TV) in Cincinnati.
In spite of the blackout being lifted, there are seats remaining for the game. They can be purchased by phone through the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 513-621-8383 (TDTD) until 6 p.m. today or between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday. Additionally, tickets may be ordered at any time today or Saturday by clicking here. Also, tickets may be purchased in person at the Bengals ticket office at Paul Brown Stadium until 5 p.m. today, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday and on game day beginning at 9 a.m.
Local 12 and Cintas led the way in helping ensure the blackout would be lifted, and the Bengals purchased tickets for distribution to local military families. Additionally, Time Warner Cable and AAA Allied Group played key roles in assisting with efforts to allow the game to be aired live.
The game will also air live on the other two CBS affiliates in the Bengals home market -- WHIO-TV (Channel 7) in Dayton and WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington, Ky.
The Bengals have not had a regular season or postseason home game blacked out for local TV since Nov. 9, 2003. The streak of 56 straight is a franchise record, having topped a streak for 43 straight between 1988-92.
