Heinz Field, Pittsburgh

(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field opened in 2001 and offers views of football, the city's many bridges, the downtown district, and the riverfront. Taking its name from the locally based H.J. Heinz Company, the field features a giant scoreboard flanked with 11 m (35 ft) of neon Heinz ketchup bottles, which virtually pour onto the screen. The stadium itself is made with over 10.9 million kg (12,000 tons) of steel, as a nod to the city's steel production heritage. When you enter through Gate B, you'll find The Great Hall, which celebrates the city's rich history of football, including memorabilia and historical artifacts. Make sure you check out the great selection of award-winning food vendors.

  • No place better to see the Steelers play than at Heinz Field! They have a pretty good selection of beers sold in cans, as well as different drafts (Miller or Coors) depending on which concession stands you go to. There are many more food options in the Great Hall or 100 level seats compared to the 500s, so if you are looking for something specific you will need to check out the lower levels. The lines getting into the stadium have really improved, and they move very quickly. It's also very convenient to use the electronic ticketing, just pull out your phone and they scan the bar code.
  • It's Heinz Field. It's Awesome. Be sure and look for the Franco Harris plaque with the immaculate reception on it. Parking is manageable albeit insufficient. We parked downtown and walked across the 279 bridge to the stadium. Cheap and a nice walk to see the city and the stadium in a different light. Getting through security was quick and easy and the food was excellent with reasonable prices for a pro stadium. We were in the 200 stadium seating which was amazing. Getting out of the city after the game was a piece of cake as by the time we had walked back to the car most traffic had left. Living in AZ this has been on bucket list for some time and seeing a Steelers game at home and a win at that was perfect. Thank you Pittsburgh!
  • Great venue, professional friendly staff. I highly recommend the tour. Best 8 bucks you'll spend. Not a bad seat in the house.
  • Amazing stadium! The fans were really nice too. But then again, I'm not sure that niceness applies to Ravens fans.
  • I am biased because I'm a Steelers fan. It also helps that they won! The reason for 4 stars is because it seems they could've rotated the stadium in a way where the city was more visible (like PNC Park's view). But perhaps there is a reason they did this that I just don't know.
