CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Bengals will pay almost $250,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by fans who claimed they were being forced to buy tickets they didn't want.

The suit settled this week was filed in 2004 by fans who agreed to buy club seat season tickets costing $1,250 to $2,600 but lost enthusiasm as the team continued to struggle.

Those wanting to cancel the tickets were told they would have to pay through 2009. The fans said the original ticket information didn't note any obligation to pay through 2009.

The fans will split $50,700 with no one receiving more than $2,600 and most getting just $100. Their attorneys will get $175,000.

The Bengals didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.
