Training Camp - Frequently Asked Questions
Most practices will be held on the practice fields just west of Paul Brown Stadium. The exceptions will be the practice at Welcome Stadium in Dayton on Saturday, July 27 and the annual “Family Dey” practice inside Paul Brown Stadium on Saturday Aug. 3. This practice day will feature enhanced attractions for children.
Seating capacity for the practice fields will include 1,250 bleacher seats, plus additional room for fans to stand along the sidelines. No passes will be required to enter.
Fans will be allowed to bring small soft-sided coolers, unopened bottles of water and food into all practices. Concessions and Bengals merchandise will be available to purchase. No chairs or other temporary seating will be permitted.
FIFTH THIRD BANK VIP SEATING
The first 53 fans to enter the gates to the practice fields and show a Fifth Third Bank Bengals Checking debit card or credit card will be upgraded to the Fifth Third Reserved Bleacher Seats. This promotion does not apply to the Family Dey practice inside the stadium.
At the conclusion of every practice on the practice fields, groups of players will be available for autographs for 15 minutes post-practice.
For the safety of pedestrians, no autographs will be permitted as players enter or leave the practice fields.
The practice fields are accessible at the public entrance on the northeast corner of the complex via eight steps and then a flat walking path to the public bleachers. Fans using wheelchairs will be directed to the team entrance at the southeast corner of the complex where a ramp allows access to the bleachers. All parking lots around Paul Brown Stadium have marked accessible parking spaces.
Paul Brown Stadium does provide ADA seating. For the post-practice autograph session our guest services staff will coordinate arrangements with fans using wheelchairs to provide access to players for autographs. At the end of practice, please visit the passenger elevators behind Section 112 for access.
