Pittsburgh Steelers Tickets - Description
Since the Super Bowl era, the Pittsburgh Steelers have appeared in eight championship games. The team has won six of those games, which includes Super Bowl XLIII in 2009 over the Arizona Cardinals. As an organization, the Steelers play in Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, under the ownership of the Rooney family. In all, the Steelers have made 26 playoff appearances since 1947; this includes 20 division championships, eight conference titles and the team’s six Super Bowl victories.
What to expect at a Pittsburgh Steelers Game
As the oldest franchise in the AFC, the Steelers’ following is unlike any other. In preparing for a trip to Pittsburgh to watch one of the NFL’s most formidable forces, learning from the experts of tailgating will ensure that first-timers don’t betray the infamous black and yellow. First, grab some Pipe Organ Pale Ale or Pious Monk Dunkel from a nearby microbrewer. Then head to the nearest thicket of black and yellow, pretending that the single-digit degree weather isn’t a bother. Finally, eat and drink until there is nothing left.
Pittsburgh Steelers and Heinz Field
Heinz Field in Pennsylvania has been home to the Pittsburgh Steelers since August 25, 2001, replacing Three Rivers Stadium. The stadium’s total seating capacity is 65,050, and every Steelers home game since 1972 has sold out. The field has a natural grass playing surface. The use of 12,000 tons of structural steel in constructing the building highlights the significance of steel production in Pittsburgh’s history. In addition to regular concession areas, Heinz Field stadium features a Great Hall with entertainment options and several retail outlets, as well as an outdoor plaza.
Pittsburgh Steelers 2011 Team Outlook
A strong defense propelled the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Super Bowl a year ago. With their strength on that side of the ball intact, the Steelers could finish what they started with a Super Bowl victory in 2011. Defense has historically been a strong suit for Pittsburgh. It definitely was the team's strength in 2010. The Steelers led the NFL with 48 sacks and ranked fifth among NFL teams with 21 interceptions. Their run defense allowed a scant 1,004 yards for the season. The offense is not too shabby either. Pittsburgh has nice balance between the run and the pass. Rashard Mendenhall tallied 1,273 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger rebounded from a four game suspension to finish with 3,200 yards, 17 touchdowns and five interceptions.
