Titans change ticket policy for knockout in hopes of keeping most Bengals fans from leaving Nissan Stadium

With Titan set to host their second playoff in the last 10 years, the team is doing their best to ensure that Nissan Stadium is not overrun by Bengali fans on Saturday.

In one Interview with New Channel 5 in Nashville, the team’s vice president of ticketing, Brooke Ellenberger, admitted that the Titans implemented a new ticket policy this week in hopes of limiting the number of Bengals fans at the game.

As per the revised policy, tickets cannot be transferred to anyone who purchases them until 24 hours before the match.

“We wanted Nissan Stadium to have two tones of blue,” says Ellenberger. “And so by limiting this transfer window, it also limits the number of visiting team fans that we will have in the stadium.”

Since a potential buyer won’t have a ticket in hand until Friday afternoon at the earliest, it makes it difficult for protesting fans to plan their weekend. It could also frighten some protesting fans because they might think they’re being scammed if the seller tells them they can’t send them tickets until Friday.

Ellenberger explains: “By limiting the transfer time that will limit some of the resale and some of the transfer will happen first.

It should be noted that the 24-hour transfer policy does not apply to anyone who purchased their ticket through NFL ticketing partners like StubHub, Ticketmaster or Seat Geek. However, if you buy a ticket there and then try to resell it, the resale ticket will be subject to a 24-hour policy.

The Titans are clearly at least somewhat worried that Bengals fans might take over Nissan Stadium and their concerns are certainly well-founded. Not only is Nashville just a four-and-a-half-hour drive from Cincinnati, but Bengals fans are certainly eager for the team’s first qualifying playoff in 31 years.

If you’re wondering how big the game is for Bengals fans, they’ve been planning to put their own tailgate for Saturday near Nissan Stadium.

Bengals fans are also planning to take over a bar near Broadway on Friday night.

Although the Titans are doing all they can to keep the Bengals fans out of Saturday’s game, it should be noted that this is not the first time a team has tried to limit the number of opposing fans in a game. match.

Back in January 2016, Broncos restricts all ticket sales for the AFC Championship Game to fans living in the Rocky Mountain region (Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah, western Kansas, and Wyoming). If you don’t have a zip code from that area, then you can’t buy a ticket, which is limited Patriots fans can attend.

It will be interesting to see if Tennessee’s plan works. However, if social media is any indication, there will be plenty of Bengals fans at Nissan Stadium on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET when this game kicks off.

If team Bengal win, they will advance to the AFC title match for the first time since the 1988 season, which is something many of their fans clearly hope to see first-hand.
