Fun Facts About Heinz Field
Heinz Field is the perfect blend of modern-day amenities and fan-friendly charm. The two-tiered stadium offers more intimacy than many NFL venues, with natural grass, great sight lines and a wide-open view of the football action set against the beautiful backdrop of downtown Pittsburgh. There is no such thing as a bad seat in this football-oriented stadium which was obviously designed to take football from a game to an experience.
Special Features of Heinz Field
- 2.2 acres of natural bluegrass provide an authentic football experience. The Steelers and Panthers don’t have to contend with a frozen playing field either, since an automatic heating system, consisting of over 35 miles of tubing, lies just beneath the grass surface and maintains the field at a constant 62 degrees.
- 7100 club seats tucked between the two levels on both sides of Heinz Field offer a fantastic vantage point and access to the two three-story club lounges. These popular lounges feature a wall of glass from floor to ceiling for nearly the entire length of the building, a huge video wall, a variety of seating, beverage kiosks and specialty-food stands.
- The open bowl shape of Heinz Field offers breathtaking views of downtown Pittsburgh, one of America’s most scenic cities. Point State Park, the Hilton Pittsburgh and Towers, PPG Place, Fifth Avenue Place, the Fort Pitt Bridge, Duquesne Incline and the Ohio River are all within view leaving visitors no doubt that they are watching the game in Pittsburgh.
- Reflecting Pittsburgh’s steel legacy, steel is a primary building material in Heinz field. The majority of the steel is silvery grey in color, except for the large gold-painted ‘quad pods’ which support the upper deck.
- Large masonry anchors Heinz Field, echoing the heavy stone bases of Pittsburgh’s downtown landmarks and bridges, such as the City-County Building and the Allegheny County Court House.
- Progressing up the stadium facade, the building gradually changes from steel and stone into walls of glass which reflect downtown skyscrapers such as PPG Place and Fifth Avenue Place, both of which are visible from inside the stadium.
- Fans entering Heinz Field through Gate B come into the “Great Hall,” which celebrates the rich football traditions of both the Steelers and the University of Pittsburgh. On display, fans can view the four Super Bowl trophies, large pictures of former Steeler greats and lockers of the Hall of Famers. Fans will also enjoy the interactive games and attractions as well as the usual selection of food and souvenirs.
- Heinz Field brings together three enduring Pittsburgh icons: Heinz was founded in 1869; the University of Pittsburgh’s first football game was in 1889 and the Steelers’ first game was played in 1933.
- The huge stadium scoreboard is flanked by two giant neon Heinz Ketchup bottles which virtually “pour” onto the screen whenever the home team drives into the “Heinz Red Zone” – the area between the 20-yard line and the goal line. If these bottles were filled with Heinz Ketchup, they would contain 1,664,000 fluid ounces each – enough to give fan at least one 14-ounce bottle of ketchup to take home.
