    History

    The Pittsburgh University Panthers currently play their home football games at Heinz Field. The stadium, which the Panthers share with the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers, was completed in 2001 at a cost of $281 million. The local government paid about $233 million of that cost. Also, the H. J. Heinz Company paid $57 million for the naming rights to the stadium. The first football game played at the stadium was a 31-0 Pitt Panthers victory over East Tennessee State on September 1, 2001. The Steelers opener at the stadium was postponed to October 7 because of the attacks on September 11. The stadium has a seating capacity of 65,050. It has an underground heating system under the playing surface with 35 miles of tubes that keep the temperature of the turf above 60 degrees. The Panthers have a different locker room than the Steelers, Duratz Locker Room, named for university donor James J. Duratz. The east side of the stadium features the Coca-Cola Great Hall, a 40,000 square foot shrine to the history of both the history of the teams who play in the stadium. While most of the space is devoted to the Steelers, two columns are devoted to Pitt Panthers memorabilia.

    • One of the best stadiums I've visited in the NFL (I've been to a total of eight). Ushers conveniently wipe off seats before you sit down. Bathrooms are very clean. A live band played before kickoff. Yes, concession lines are long, but they go surprisingly fast. And a great variety drinks and food that your stomach won't regret. And the fans talk great "friendly" trash! (we were there rooting for the opposition, the Cincinnati Bengals) Didn't give it a full 5 trophy rating because unlike other cold-weather open stadiums I've visited, there's no outdoor heated sitting area. You'd have to opt for the expensive club seats in the winter... So, only summer/late fall games for me! I recommend visiting Heinz Field if you have the opportunity. They love their Steelers! - Erica, Woodbridge, Virginia
