Acrisure Stadium is a football stadium located in the North Shore neighbourhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It primarily serves as the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL) and the Pittsburgh Panthers of the NCAA Football in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Acrisure Stadium opened on August 18th, 2001, as Heinz Field and has a capacity of 68,400.

Acrisure Stadium was built following the controlled implosion of the teams’ previous home, Three Rivers Stadium. In 2021, the H.J. Heinz Company declined to renew the stadium’s naming rights. The City of Pittsburgh green lit Acrisure’s bid to purchase the rights in 2022.

The stadium was designed with the city’s history of steel production in mind, which led to the inclusion of 12,000 tons of steel into construction. Ground for the stadium was broken in June 1999. The stadium’s natural-grass surface has been criticized throughout its history, but Steelers owners have kept the grass after lobbying from players and coaches.

Pittsburgh Steelers Tickets

The Pittsburgh Steelers sell their tickets via Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket outlet for the NFL.

For most teams, Ticketmaster sells tickets on behalf of the team and resells tickets on behalf of ticket sellers. You can tell the difference on the site as the Blue dots are tickets from the team themselves, and the pink dots are from verified sellers.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown may have further selling platform fees added, so take time to read my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the team’s Mobile App to your phone as it contains much Gameday information for the stadium.
