Steelers and Heinz Field Emphasize Fan P.R.I.D.E. at Games
“PRIDE in Yourself, PRIDE in the Game”
The Steelers and Heinz Field will emphasize a fan code of conduct designed to create a safe, comfortable and enjoyable sports entertainment environment for all fans. The code of conduct was created by the NFL and its 32 clubs, and addresses behavior that detracts from a positive game day experience.
In Pittsburgh, the code of conduct has been eagerly adopted by Heinz Field, the Steelers and the University of Pittsburgh, and will be known as P.R.I.D.E.: PRIDE in Yourself, PRIDE in the Game. P.R.I.D.E. stands for Positive Heinz Field Experience; Respect Each Other; Integrity; Dignified Behavior; and Excellence On and Off the Field.
“Our goal is to provide a positive Heinz Field experience for all fans from the time they enter the parking lots before events until they exit the lots afterwards,” said Heinz Field Executive Director of Stadium Management, Jim Sacco. “P.R.I.D.E. is a team effort that combines fans, staff and players working together to keep Heinz Field a fan-friendly environment.”
Fan Code of Conduct:
Heinz Field is committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for all fans, both in the stadium and in the parking lots. We want all fans attending our events to enjoy the experience in a responsible fashion. When attending an event you are required to refrain from the following behaviors:
- Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, or illegal in nature
- Intoxication or other signs of alcohol impairment that results in irresponsible behavior
- Foul or abusive language or obscene gestures
- Interference with the progress of the event (including throwing objects onto the field)
- Failing to follow instructions of stadium personnel
- Verbal or physical harassment of opposing team fans
Season ticket holders and event patrons are responsible for their conduct as well as the conduct of their guests and/or persons occupying their seats. Stadium staff will promptly intervene to support an environment where event patrons, their guests, and other fans can enjoy the event free from the above behaviors.
Event patrons and guests who violate these provisions will be subject to ejection without refund and potential loss of ticket privileges for future events. PSSI Stadium Corp. reserves the right to revoke ticket privileges for any reason and at any time during the season. PSSI Stadium Corp. will notify in writing the season ticket holder of record of any report of fan misconduct.
Fans can now report emergencies in the seating bowl from their seat. If you see a fan altercation, medical emergency or other violation of stadium rules, please call our Fan Hotline (412) 697-7766 or text Pitt33 to 69050. A guest services attendant will be able to assist you and dispatch the appropriate entities to the emergency. Please note the phone line and text messaging are only answered on game days.
