Published January 13, 1997
Commitments for private suites at the new Bengals stadium have hit 60, putting the program 75% towards its April 30 sales target. The agreement between the Bengals and Hamilton County specifies that 80 private suites must be leased by April 30 (Bengals). The 12-seat suites, available in six, eight and ten-year leases with annual price increases of 3-5%, range from $45-$134,000. The price will cover the cost of tickets and parking, but not food (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/12). Columnist Tim Sullivan, noting the suite sales: "The last loophole that would allow [Bengals Owner] Mike Brown to take his team to Cleveland is slowly being shut" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/12).
