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 afterward,” said Heinz Field Vice President of Stadium Operations and 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.”
