Steelers Add New Experiences To 2016 Training Camp

Check out images of Steelers football during training camp at Saint Vincent College through the years.

The Steelers’ first practice open to the public will be Friday, July 29, at Saint Vincent College, home of Steelers training camp since 1966.

While fans in attendance will be able to enjoy watching the Steelers prepare for the 2016 season as they always have, the team has developed new programming, for both fans in attendance as well as those who can’t make it to Saint Vincent College.

Opening weekend for the team’s 2016 training camp will include an NFL Network Fan Activation Zone, featuring appearances by former Steelers Rocky Bleier and Mel Blount, as well as a Super Bowl LI Lombardi Trophy display.

Members of Steelers Nation Unite, the official fan loyalty program of the team, will be treated to a new feature in 2016. Twice daily, select SNU members will be able to take part in a special viewing of the team’s 2015 highlight film. To sign up to become a member of SNU, visit www.steelersnationunite.com.

Other new on-site activities at training camp include interactive photo opportunities, along with daily fan experiences, including VIP passes and other giveaways. Fans can also visit the new Steelers merchandise tent, featuring Steelers authentic memorabilia.

The Pittsburgh Steelers traveled to Latrobe Memorial stadium for the annual Friday Night Lights practice.

The annual Friday Night Lights practice will take place at Latrobe Memorial Stadium on Friday,* August 5. The day will feature *“Steelers Fest” from 12-6 p.m., and ESPN SportsCenter On the Road will broadcast Live from 7-9 p.m. at Latrobe Memorial Stadium. Fans will have the opportunity to take a picture with the team’s six Lombardi Trophies at Steelers Fest. Practice concludes with a fireworks display presented by Pepsi.

The Steelers and preseason TV partner KDKA will launch a new weekly TV program, “Steelers Camp 2016 – Back To Work.” The program, hosted by Bob Pompeani, Charlie Batch and Missi Matthews, will air for the first three Saturdays during training camp on KDKA-TV following the late news.
