Heinz Field
Heinz FieldYou're closer to the action at Heinz Field! Unlike other multi-purpose facilities, Heinz Field is designed around the dimensions of the playing surface, creating a closer, more intimate fan experience. The first row of seats on the east and west sides are approximately 55 ft. from the sideline, while the north and south ends are about 25 ft. from the back of the endzone. The upper deck is stacked and overlaps the lower deck, bringing the fans in the upper deck seats closer to the field. Heinz Field's seats are designed to provide extra room and are contoured for greater comfort.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the finest football stadiums in the country to call home!

Situated just north of Pittsburgh's Point State Park, the horseshoe shaped stadium seats 64,450 people and provides a stunning view of the city's breathtaking skyline and three rivers. Among its amenities are 127 luxury suites.

The heating system (24 heat sensors monitor temperature) is activated when the root zone (surface below sod) drops below 60 degrees. Approximately 35 miles of tubing runs in loops underneath the field. This aids in maintenance and growth.

After spending 30 years at the multipurpose Three Rivers Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers now play in one of the superior NFL stadiums. Like many other teams in the 1990's, the Steelers lobbied and received public funding to build a new stadium. The Steelers had played at Three Rivers Stadium along with the Pittsburgh Pirates (MLB) for more than thirty years. Construction for new stadiums for both the Steelers and the Pirates began in 1999. Both stadiums were constructed on opposite ends of Three Rivers Stadium, along the Ohio River. As part of a 20 year partnership with Heinz Company, the Steelers new stadium was named Heinz Field.
