The Miami Dolphins game (10-31-2010) was our staff's first game at Paul Brown Stadium for the 2010 season. Our seats were in section 131, row 11 and paid $160 for two tickets.

$80 per ticket is right at face value for these seats, which you can expect to pay when you watch a team as bad as the Cincinnati Bengals. The view of the field is so-so, in the corner of Paul Brown Stadium, but offers a better view than most end zone seating. Seats are very close to the action, and offer a decent view of the visiting team bench. Going into the game, the Bengals were 2-4. The crowd was not rowdy in the slightest; the atmosphere just isn't what it used to be when the Bengals had a playoff-caliber team. I was amazed at how many Dolphins fans showed up to the game; all were very respectful and well-mannered.

We parked our car at the Fountain Square parking garage, which is still $10 for the 2010 season. Beers are now $8 at Paul Brown Stadium, up from $7.50 last year (2009). Prices for beer and tickets will continue to go up as people continue to pay that kind of money for them both; this is true for all sports venues.
