Heinz Field - Pittsburgh, PA

Home of the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers and the NCAA’s Pittsburgh Panthers, Heinz Field is an outdoor stadium located in the North Shore neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The stadium opened in 2001, and its first event was a live concert by the band *NSYNC. A few days later, the Steelers played a pre-season game against the Detroit Lions. Since then, Heinz Field has hosted the home games of the Steelers and the Panthers, and various sports and entertainment events such as the annual Heinz Kick-off and Rib Fest, Family Fest, Fourth of July celebrations, and a number of concerts. Heinz Field has been consistently ranked as one of the top football stadiums in the country.

The 12,000-ton steel-reinforced stadium can seat 68,400 fans comfortably. It features Daktronics’ latest generation of 4.4 trillion color HD-16 LED displays videoboards, and 800 televisions linked to the main scoreboard, ensuring that fans will never miss any of the action. Its main scoreboard is bordered by two enormous neon Heinz Ketchup bottles, each one measuring 35 feet tall. Its amenities and facilities include 127 luxury suites, three club lounges, 47 food concession stands, seven novelty stores, and the FedEx Great Hall, which features the memorabilia and artifacts of both the Steelers and the Panthers. A tour of the facility is offered during the months of April through October.

Often referred to as The City of Bridges and The Steel City, Pittsburgh is a must-see destination. It was recently named as one of the "Best Places to Travel in 2017" by Harper's Bazaar. The city’s top attractions include the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, Market Square, and the Strip District, where you can shop and dine.
