NFL denies holding the super bowl party at paul Brown stadium. None of the Cincinnati Bengal fans are allowed to go cheered up in the Paul Brown stadium.
Hamilton county wanted to host a fan event inside the publicly owned stadium for a game which is on Sunday, Feb. 13. Nearly 2,200 miles away at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif they will play the game. Unfortunately, NFL denied the request.
In return of the league request NFL stated “consistent with the NFL’s Rule and Policies applicable to similar events”. On Wednesday afternoon Hamilton received the reply letter.
“As you are aware, we had been working to initiate a Watch Party for the Super Bowl at Paul Brown Stadium. Part of that work included the necessity of obtaining approval from the NFL for broadcasting the game. As indicated in the attached letter, the NFL has denied that approval,” wrote Hamilton County Administrator J in a letter to the Board of County Commissioners.
Many fans are disappointed but critics also said that the watch party st the stadium should hold due to CovID 19 situation. Eric Brown, the managing director at Paul Brown Stadium, wrote in a letter. “The legal and logistical barriers to holding a ‘Watch’ Party for Super Bowl LVI are too significant.”
However, the stadium will have a fan rally on Monday. All of the free tickets for the 6 p.m. general admission event are claimed and everybody is excited.
The NFL also said that it would be too much of a legal and logistical challenge to allow the event as the event will be great and large no.of fans will be participating.
From the league’s perspective, there are a lot of things to think about such as sponsors, operators, broadcasters, and other people. So right now there is nothing right or wrong everybody has a different perspective on the decision.
