CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Vendors who sell items around Great American Ball Park will face new rules for next year's Major League Baseball All-Star Game about where and what they can sell, FOX19 has learned. 

In a letter dated Monday, the city said during the six-day All-Star Game celebrations, vendor licenses within a "baseball special event area" will have restrictions which will preclude all sales of merchandise, goods and wares. The city also said ticket sales and product sampling won't be allowed in the area during the six-day period.

However, otherwise permitted beverages and food can be sold in the area according to the terms of each vendor license.

The area is roughly from West Pete Rose Way at West Mehring Way (west of the Brent Spence Bridge) to Columbia Parkway and Martin Drive to the east. From north to south, it's from West Ninth Street to the riverfront.  It does not include Fountain Square but the Duke Energy Convention Center is part of the area.

The city said it will help vendors who want to relocate to other vendor-permitted areas within the city during the six-day period to sell all permitted items.

In a Sept. 16, 2011 letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig when the city was bidding for the game, then City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr. said the city agreed to a "clean zone." Dohoney said the clean zone would be passed by council on or before Feb. 1, 2015.

"The city agrees that MLB has the exclusive right to sell, distribute and otherwise promote the sale of MLB merchandise and products of MLB sponsors and/or partners in the clean zone," Dohoney said.

Cincinnati City Council's budget committee will review an ordinance about the new regulations at 1 p.m. Monday. The full council could vote on the measure at 2 p.m. June 25.

The game is July 14, 2015 and will be televised on FOX19.

This year's game is July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis where the Minnesota Twins play. The game will be shown on FOX19.
