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."
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.
