Bengals Game Sells Out, Time to Focus on Football
CINCINNATI (Joe Webb) -- With the clock ticking, two Cincinnati giants step up and make a deal that has members of Bengals Nation celebrating.
P&G and Kroger have stepped up so thousands of military members and their families can go to Sunday's playoff game.
It all came together just in the last couple of days before the NFL deadline to blackout the game. The office of the Bengals was quote, "sweating bullets." But now that it's sold out, they can focus on football.
Despite strong sales of more than 1,000 tickets a day the Bengals still had several thousand they needed to sell after a hand full of local businesses came forward Thursday to help buy tickets. Kroger bought a huge block Friday and Procter and Gamble picked up the remaining tickets.
Kroger will give free playoff tickets to US military veterans and active duty service members.
They will be distributed at five local stores Saturday, including Amelia and Newport Marketplace from 10a.m. till noon. At the Liberty Township store from noon until 2p.m. At Dent store from 1p.m. to 3p.m. and the Blue Ash store from 4p.m. until 6p.m.
