The 2021 Ben-Gals Cheerleaders have been officially announced. This year's squad features many new faces in addition to returning veterans.
The Ben-Gals will be performing at Paul Brown Stadium on game days, as well as participating in community events, while supporting different charities throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.
The Ben-Gals have been part of the organization since 1968, and continue to play an important role in the organization.
The Ben-Gals wrapped up their final auditions on June 6 after a three-week evaluation process. Team practices start June 15 to prepare for the first preseason home game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, August 29 and the regular season home opener against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Sept. 12.
The new team will be led by captains, and former vets: Delaney W and Samantha R. The Ben-Gals are coached by Director, Charlotte Simons, Head Coach, Traci Napier, and Team Development Coach, Deanna Hazeley.
"The Ben-Gals are looking forward to seeing the fans in The Jungle this year, while participating in game day festivities," said Simons.
