After spending 30 years at the multipurpose Three Rivers Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers now play at 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 of 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 the Heinz Company, the Steelers new stadium was named Heinz Field.

Opening day for the Steelers at Heinz Field came on October 7, 2001. Heinz Field is in the shape of a horseshoe, with the south end open. Two, three tiered grandstands are located on both sides of the field. The lower deck circles around the entire field. A section of bleacher seats are located on a second deck on the north side of Heinz Field. The stadium has a capacity of 64,450 which includes 7,000 club seats and 120 luxury suites. Behind the seats on the south end is a massive 48 ft. by 27 ft. scoreboard. Heinz Field has many amenities including several entertainment areas, team stores, restaurants, and a Steelers Hall of Fame. Because of its horseshoe shape, fans attending games at Heinz Field receive excellent views of the Pittsburgh skyline.
