The Cincinnati Bengals have big upgrades planned for Paycor Stadium.

Those include upgraded seats and concessions stands, upgrades to the locker room as well as the big-ticket item — a new turf playing surface.

Speaking with reporters this week, Bengals executive vice president Katie Blackburn said some of the renovations (of course) have to do with the desire to get a new lease done with Hamilton County.

Blackburn noted the following, too, according to Geoff Hobson of “Because the stadium is 25 years old and we want to keep it in the great condition that it has been in, we have been focused on how we keep maintaining it so we can hopefully make it last a little bit longer into the future. We’re very happy with our stadium, but it does require things to be done over time to keep it up to standards, so we’ve been working hard trying to make sure we do that, rather than getting too far behind.”

The current upgrades to Paycor Stadium are part of a $39 million renovation plan approved by Hamilton County. That lease technically expires in June of 2026.
