The NFL has directed teams to begin selling playoff tickets, and the Bengals are offering a new program called "Pay as We Play," which allows season ticket holders to reserves seats with a debit or credit card and only be charged for games as they are clinched.
Also available is the traditional option to pay in advance for all possible home games, with refunds or account credit available for any payments for games not played.
The deadline for season ticket holders to choose either option is Dec. 5.
Teams can host a maximum of two playoff games: 1) A Wild Card or Divisional Round game and 2) the AFC Championship game. Wild Card round games will be played the weekend of Jan. 3-4. Divisional Round games will be the weekend of Jan. 10-11. The AFC Championship Game is set for Jan. 18.
Playoff tickets for a Wild Card or Divisional game will be available in a price range only slightly higher than the $44-$95 single-ticket prices for regular-season games. Wild Card tickets would range from $56-$96, and Divisional tickets $60-$107.
Prices for the AFC Championship game, with the winner advancing to Super Bowl XLIX, will range from $132-$164.
“We’re excited to have a team vying for a fourth straight playoff season, and we believe we have great values available,” Bengals ticket sales manager Andrew Brown said in a press release. “Though the NFL has the final say on playoff ticket prices, we have worked with the league to help assure that our playoff tickets will be affordable to our fans across all seating areas.”
Though season ticket holders are afforded the first chance to purchase playoff tickets, plus additional tickets they may desire, tickets will later be available to 2014 Ticket Pack buyers, followed by the general public. It’s anticipated that these availabilities will come early next month, and fans desiring the most current information about these opportunities can register their e-mail addresses on Bengals.com for direct notice on dates and procedures.
