What To Expect As Bengals Return To Full Capacity


The Bengals are excited to welcome fans back for the 2021 season as Paul Brown Stadium returns to full capacity. The Bengals are committed to delivering a great customer experience for fans with several initiatives designed to make gameday a safe and enjoyable environment.


Paul Brown Stadium is going cashless beginning on Sunday, Aug. 29 at the Bengals' preseason home game against the Miami Dolphins. Paul Brown Stadium joins other local venues like Great American Ball Park and Kings Island in going cashless.

Visitors to the stadium for games, concerts and other events can expect to exclusively use a credit card, debit card or mobile payment for all purchases in the facility. Going cashless allows the stadium to operate more efficiently and effectively as cashless transactions are faster, more secure and reduce wait times to allow fans to get back to the action sooner.

The entire stadium will be cashless, including all concession stands and retail locations. Roaming vendors (hawkers) will be equipped with mobile credit card devices to process cashless payments.

Accepted methods of payment include credit cards (Visa, Mastercard and Discover), debit cards and Apple Pay. Concession stands also accept Google Pay. Fans can transfer cash to a universally accepted debit card for no fee at cash-to-card kiosks located in the stadium. Signage throughout the stadium will direct fans to these locations.
