The Cincinnati Bengals are a professional football team that compete in the National Football League (NFL) in the American Football Conference (AFC) North division. The team was founded in 1966 by former head coach and co-founder of the Cleveland Browns, Paul Brown. His son, Mike Brown, inherited ownership of the team after his father’s death in 1991.
The Bengals play their home games at the Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2021, the team’s average regular season home attendance amounted to 60,325. The Cincinnati Bengals' revenue in 2020 amounted to around 348 million U.S. dollars and the team’s operating loss for that year was estimated to be at about 17 million U.S. dollars. As of 2021, the Bengals franchise value stood at approximately 2.28 billion U.S. dollars.
The Cincinnati Bengals have made three Super Bowl appearances in 1982, 1988 and 2022, all three of which they lost. Their most recent period of sustained success came between 2011 and 2015, when they made the playoffs for five years running, but they never managed to make it past the wild card stage. The Bengals have a combined total of around 1.98 million Facebook and Twitter fans and followers.
