If you're going to a home contest this season, here's everything you need to know before you enter Paycor Stadium. 

How to show tickets to get into a Bengals game

Paycor Stadium is using mobile ticketing only to enable "contact-free entry." PDF tickets were no longer valid for entry as of the 2018 season, part of a league-wide initiative. Attendees with mobile tickets or printed tickets from the box office can enter the stadium.

Visitors can access mobile tickets by downloading the official Bengals app, which is available free to download on the App Store and Google Play. The app allows you to access, transfer or sell tickets. If you do not have a smartphone or a printed ticket from the box office, contact the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 513-621-8383 for assistance.

How to make a purchase inside Paycor Stadium

Paycor Stadium is a cashless facility, meaning visitors can only use a credit card, debit card or mobile payment for all purchases. This includes all concession stand and retail locations. All roaming vendors will have mobile credit card devices to process cashless payments.

If you come to the stadium with only cash, there are cash-to-card kiosks that can transfer cash to a card with no fees. The kiosks are in two locations: one on the north side of the stadium by Gate B, Sections 120/122, and the other on the south side of the stadium by Gate E, Sections 148/149.

These cards can be used anywhere, not just at Paycor Stadium, per the Bengals website.
