Step-by-step instructions:


Fifth Third Bank will make game day a Fifth Third better® by providing free rides from downtown to Paul Brown Stadium throughout the season. The Fifth Third better® carts will be picking up fans from designated pick up spots (Fountain Square, P&G Gardens and Duke Energy Center) and shuttling fans to the stadium three hours prior to game time, up until kickoff. Be on the lookout for the Fifth Third better® cart and grab a free ride to the game.



Based on recommended NFL public safety best practices, we strongly encourage fans to not bring any bags. One (per person) of the bags listed below will be permitted inside Paul Brown Stadium:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12"x6"x12"
  • One-gallon re-sealable clear freezer bag
  • Women's clutch purse no larger than 4.5" x 6.5" with one of the clear plastic bags

Paul Brown Stadium is a smoke-free facility. This includes cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes, and any devices that emit smoke. Non-smoking areas include all concourses, bathrooms, seating areas, and stairwells.

Fans will be allowed to smoke outside the major exits (gates in A, B, C, D, E) in a gated area. You will not be exiting the actual stadium so you will not require a ticket, stamp, or pass for re-entry. Please exit the gates into the gated area that states "Smoking Exit."
