Training Camp brings excitement for fans

As the team continues to celebrate its 50th summer at Saint Vincent College, Steelers Nation Unite members are finding themselves right in the middle of the action, with access to a number of different experiences and ways to get rewarded.

On Sunday, July 26, members who visited the Steelers Nation Unite tent and checked in had an opportunity to receive access to a post-practice VIP dinner where, in addition to their meal, they were treated to an autograph session with Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Mitchell.

That same day, members also took home gift cards to The Steelers Pro Shop – World Headquarters, as well as hats and other merchandise.

Monday afternoon brought new ways for fans to get rewarded, as Steelers Nation Unite members who checked in found themselves at a pre-practice VIP experience, where they watched the team's highlight tape and participated in a Q&A with Steelers analysts Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley. From there, they hit the practice fields where they stood merely yards away from their favorite players as they ran through drills on a hot and humid July afternoon.

Other members who checked in Monday were given access to the Mike Tomlin autograph line, where the Head Coach signed hats, photos and Terrible Towels while posing for pictures with a lucky group of Steelers fans.

When practice ended, the rewards weren't done, as still another group of SNU members headed to a post-practice dinner and autograph session.

In addition to the pre- and post-practice invitations on Monday, members also took home SNU hats and gift cards to The Steelers Pro Shop – World Headquarters.

While the fans who came to camp as members of Steelers Nation Unite scored some very cool benefits, fans who signed up at the Steelers Nation Unite tent were given a free window cling just for joining.


Steelers Nation Unite members scored VIP experiences and priority access during the first two days of the Steelers 2015 Training Camp.

Furthermore, while fans from Tennessee, Texas, Colorado, North Carolina and Canada, along with many other states, have been represented at camp, Monday also provided a pretty special opportunity to Steelers Nation Unite members who weren't in Latrobe.

As a benefit to being a member, fans are given weekly opportunities to interact directly with the team and players through the 'Weekly Huddle.' The special guest on Monday just so happened to be former RB and 2015 Hall of Fame inductee Jerome Bettis.

Members were treated to an exclusive conference call Q&A where Bettis took a number of questions from fans about his playing days, winning the Super Bowl in his hometown and, of course, what it means to him to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

To read and listen to more about Bettis' interaction with fans, as well as learn more about the exciting benefits that await as a member of Steelers Nation, visit right now and join for free.

Signing up is quick, easy and requires only an email address and a password. With training camp about to hit its full stride when the pads go on Wednesday afternoon, all fans everywhere will want to be part of the many exciting and exclusive opportunities that can only come through Steelers Nation Unite.

Fans who sign up now can also enter for a chance to win a VIP trip to the Steelers home opener on Sunday, September, 20 against the San Francisco 49ers. Get connected now.
