“Home of the Cincinnati Bengals”
Paul Brown Stadium is an American sports stadium located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the home venue of the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. It opened on August 19, 2000. The stadium was named after coaching legend Paul Brown, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who founded not only the Bengals in 1966, but also the Cleveland Browns franchise in 1945.
Beautiful from the outside and boring on the inside. The interior of Paul Brown just feels like walls of concrete all around. The half-hearted attempt to put in an Irish pub is downright laughable. The place screams cheapness. On cold days pay to not be on the top level because when that wind blows in off the river it can feel mighty cold. Thankful to have an NFL team, but it's definitely not a top 10 NFL stadium.
PBS is a taxpayers nightmare and needs some upgrades but visually is a sexy stadium. Much sexier than GABP IMO. If you want cheap tickets bring $50 to the tailgating area along Longworth Hall and start making friends (you might score some free ones, people always seem to be giving them away when the team is struggling) if you must go through a scalper wait until kickoff and inevitably some dude will be desperate to unload. Stay firm at $50. Trust me. Works every time most of the time ;)
The stadium is pretty new/nice, but there isn't really anything catered towards the fans (nothing like the Reds stadium). Kept in good shape, and it's tough to find a really terrible seat, but prices will be high!. And the crowd tends to be drunk and rowdy, so visiting fans/children/calm people beware
If you're sitting in the upper level, make sure to pick seats towards the middle of each section. I've been to games sitting closer to the aisle and have had people blocking my view because they like to stand at the top of the stairs leading to the aisles going up. Also, things can get a little rowdy at times (especially if the Bengals are playing a rival)
One of the most beautiful football stadiums! It's a great part of the Cincinnati skyline. Word to the wise, it's worth parking a few blocks away because after the game, it's much easier to get out.
We are Bengals fans, so I have to like the stadium. It's fun on road trips to pass the outside as it's a large structure.
They have craft beer, which is cool. If you have kids, don't bring them here. I think it's really fucking inappropriate for adults to behave the way they do at this stadium. I'm specifically talking about the a-holes who wouldn't stop ripping on my brother when he was a small child because he was (and still kind of is) a Browns fan. Grow the fuck up.
Others have pretty much nailed this place: boring on the inside, crazy expensive seats, really no reason to go other than to focus on the game. People get incredibly drunk and yell things for the sake of yelling at a football game. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the team on the field, but you don't need to scream every time the running back has positive yardage.
WHO DEY! Such a fun fan atmosphere. I recommend arriving an hour before kickoff as there's many bottlenecks around entrances and escalators. Beers and food can be pricey so prepare accordingly. Limited covered seats so be sure to check the weather forecast.
