About Little Big Town
Heinz Field, situated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a home to the Panthers football team from University of Pittsburgh as well as the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers. Opened in 2001, the stadium sits on what used to be Three Rivers Stadium that was also an old home of the Steelers and MLB’s Pittsburgh Pirates. The $281 million capability sits adjacent in the neighborhood of North Shore to the Ohio River and is named after Pittsburgh-based H.J. Heinz Company, that earned the naming rights as the stadium was built. When designing the stadium, Pittsburgh’s rich steel history was the focus as nearly 12,000 tons of the material was used in a rugged looking building. Every Steelers home game has sold out since moving to Heinz Field, a record that actually dates back to the 1972 season. The 65,050-seat venue played host as well to the NHL Winter Classic in 2011, a 3-1 victory for the visiting Washington Capitals over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Heinz Field is home to a unique concourse structure that includes the Great Hall, a 40,000 square-foot area depicting important events in Steelers history. A plethora of murals and memorabilia make up the impressive shrine of the historic franchises gloried past, including actual lockers of Franco Harris and Joe Greene. Despite already being among the NFL’s biggest stadiums, Heinz Field will still be expanding by approximately 3,000 seats, with plans to begin the project immediately following approval from the league.
