Acrisure Stadium History
Acrisure Stadium is not only home to the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, it’s also the home turf of the Pittsburgh Panthers of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Occasional hockey games have been played here as well.
Originally called Heinz Field when the stadium opened in 2001, it became known as Acrisure Stadium in 2022, named for the global insurance broker headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Prior to that, the Steelers’ home was nearby Three Rivers Stadium, which closed in 2000.
After breaking ground in June 1999, the first football game took place at Acrisure Stadium in September 2001. Since that time, most of the Steelers’ home games at the 68,400-seat stadium have sold out, continuing an impressive streak that began at the previous stadium in 1972.
A collection of memorabilia from the Steelers and Panthers can also be found in the stadium’s Great Hall.
Acrisure Stadium is also a popular concert venue, having featured performances from artists including Lady Gaga, Garth Brooks, One Direction, Luke Bryan and many others. Taylor Swift set an attendance record here during The Eras tour on June 17, 2023 with a performance that brought in 73,117 people – the largest ever audience in its history.
