Paul Brown Stadium is a football stadium located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the home of the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. It opened on August 19, 2000. Bucking a recent trend, the city decided against selling the naming rights of the new stadium to a large corporation and named it 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 in 1946.

In 1996, Hamilton County voters passed a one-half percent sales tax increase to fund the building of two new facilities for both the Bengals and the Major League Baseball Cincinnati Reds. Previously, the Bengals and the Reds shared occupancy of Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field, but both teams complained that the aging multipurpose facility lacked modern amenities and other things necessary for small market teams to survive. Paul Brown Stadium was built first. After the Bengals moved into Paul Brown Stadium a large section of Cinergy Field was removed and the field was sodded with natural grass. The partial demolition was done to facilitate the construction of the Reds' Great American Ball Park.

Originally, the field was natural Kentucky Bluegrass, but problems arose in maintaining it. At one point, the field was rated as the third-worst field in the league by the NFL Players Association. Hamilton County, the owners of the stadium, explored other options and the revolutionary FieldTurf system won out. FieldTurf looks and feels like real grass, and since the field markings are actually sewn into the fabric, repainting between games is unnecessary. The reduced maintenance saves the county approximately $100,000 annually. Additionally, it opens Paul Brown Stadium to other uses without worry of damage to the turf. The FieldTurf was installed for the 2004 season. Kentucky bluegrass is a hardy grass imported from Europe and flourishing in Americas southeast. ...

Extra Info

WHO DEY? official slogan of the Cincinnati Bengals.


Bengals' fans lovingly refer to Paul Brown Stadium as "The Jungle." This is a reference both to the natural habitat of the tiger as well as the Guns N' Roses song "Welcome to the Jungle" (from their Appetite for Destruction album).[citation needed] In 1988, the Bengals made their second trip to the Super Bowl, and during that season, the song, particularly the opening guitar riff, was played between plays. Fans informally began calling the old stadium "The Jungle", a practice which was carried over to Paul Brown Stadium. However, it wasn't until 2004 that the Bengals officially recognized the nickname and added a jungle motif and tiger stripes to the stadium's interior walls.
