Thread: Season Ticket Attendance Options

  1. Season Ticket Attendance Options

    *** I apologize if this should be in a thread elsewhere on the site. I got this this morning and think it could be of interest or impact a number of people on this board. Personally, I am going. If the season is not closed to fans or something. I am willing to put up with the hassle to see Joe's first season.

    Dear High School Harry,

    Last week, we promised to provide you with A) more information and B) options for the 2020 season. Please carefully review the information below to make the best decision for your group.

    The Bengals place a premium on the health and safety of our fans, staff, and players in hosting football games this fall. To that end, we will implement guidelines consistent with applicable laws, regulations, and NFL rules that are responsive to fan safety concerns. As you consider attending games this year, please note the following safety measures will be in effect:

    All fans will be required to wear facial coverings at all times unless actively eating or drinking
    Fans will be required to socially distance when moving about the stadium, including while waiting in lines while entering and exiting the stadium, standing at concession areas, and so forth
    Tailgating in the parking lots will not be permitted
    Capacity at Paul Brown Stadium will be greatly reduced in order to provide each seating group physical distance between you and the next nearest seating group
    The first 8 rows of the lower level will be blocked off
    The last two bullet points make clear that seating locations will change this year & if we have approval to host fans at games, we will undergo a stadium-wide re-seating process for all Season Ticket Members. Please note that the above safety guidelines remain subject to change based on, among other things, any subsequent changes in applicable laws and regulations and NFL guidelines.

    We understand everyone will have different levels of comfort with attending games given the above guidelines. While we absolutely want you to join us in The Jungle this fall, we understand this may not be the best option for you at this time. We have outlined 2 simple options below. Option 1 is for fans who want to attend games in person this fall, subject to our required re-seating plan. Option 2 is for fans who wish to opt out of 2020 tickets, but keep their seats for 2021.

    Count me in! If you'd like to join us this fall at Paul Brown Stadium and participate in the re-seating process (taking place in August), no action is needed at this time. If you have a remaining balance on your account, it will be due at the time of your seat selection. NOTE: you may still choose to opt-out of the 2020 season after reviewing your seating options and prior to the completion of the re-seating process. Please note that if you take no action, you will receive option 1.
    I'm watching the 2020 season from home (but I'll be back in The Jungle in 2021!). If you'd like to opt-out of the 2020 season but preserve your seats for 2021, please click the opt-out button below and submit the web form.
    I Want To Opt-Out Of The 2020 Season
    *By opting out of the 2020 season, you acknowledge and agree that you are forfeiting your rights to any seats for the 2020 season regardless of your Charter Ownership Agreement (COA) or Season Ticket Member status or priority & you are forfeiting any claims based on the COA or your Season Ticket Member status. You will retain all your COA and Season Ticket Member priorities, rights, and seat locations for the 2021 season.

    **If you opt-out and choose to receive a refund, you will be refunded using the payment method you used at the time of purchase. Refunds will be processed within 30 days of receiving your request. If your payment method is no longer valid, please reach out to your Account Manager.
    You may have questions so please reach out to our STM Services team by phone at (513) 455-8888 or email with any questions or concerns regarding your account.

    Stay safe & WHO DEY!

    Manager, Season Ticket Member Services

    I posted in the "corona" thread, but this does deserve it's own thread.

    I'm opting out myself. I have a 2 week old and a 2 year old, plus senior parents that babysit. Too much risk for me.

    I think a lot of people are going to be unhappy with the "re-seating process". I assume they will go by seniority, but people going from lower bowl to upper bowl, sideline to end zone, or kicked out of club will be tough to swallow. At least they are giving the option to still back out later when you see your seat choice.

    Just being in the stadium anywhere is a privilege, seems to me.
