Heinz Field Management and the Pittsburgh Steelers are beginning a new program with the goal of reminding fans to enter the stadium early to ensure they will not miss kickoff. The program will begin this Sunday night prior to the Steelers game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football (NBC, 8:20 p.m.).
Fireworks, which will be presented by Zambelli Fireworks, will be set off an hour prior to kickoff (this week, 7:20 p.m.) and 30 minutes prior to kickoff (this week, 7:50 p.m.) to serve as reminders for fans to enter Heinz Field so they will not miss all of the pregame activities, including Steelers introductions and kickoff.
Fans are also being reminded of the mobile ticketing process in place at Heinz Field starting this year. Prior to coming to Heinz Field, fans should:
• Save their mobile tickets to the digital wallet on their smartphone.
• Make sure their phones are fully charged.
• Arrive to the gates early – if you arrive after 30 minutes before kickoff, there is a good chance you will miss the start of the game.
