Fans who attend Steelers training camp will notice a new addition to the camp experience this year, the Steelers Social Tent.
The tent, located across from the FedEx Traveling Great Hall, gives fans a place to connect with the team through Facebook, Twitter and email. The tent supplies everything fans need to stay engaged, including iPads, a charging station and complementary Wifi.
Fans can interact directly with the team by liking the Steelers on Facebook and following @steelers on Twitter. Email recipients will receive exclusive Steelers related offers, news and information on events, as well as great merchandise discount codes to use online.
Pictures from the action on the field and links to the Steelers.com Live daily show at 5 p.m. are posted on all of the social media streams, as well as contests to win free merchandise and much more.
