Here in Pittsburgh, the Standard is the Standard. As a commitment to our loyal fanbase, we continue to invest in ways to create a best-in-class gameday experience at Acrisure Stadium, which was recently named one of the Best NFL Stadiums in the 2023 USA Today's 10 Best Readers' Choice Awards for 2023. With improved technology, upgraded concessions, elevated gameday experiences and entertainment, and more, we're thrilled to unveil what lies ahead at Acrisure Stadium for the upcoming 2023 season.
Evolv security screening technology has been added to gates establishing an arrival process for guests that is notably swifter and exceptionally safeguarded. Guests can simply walk through these systems unimpeded, without having to remove personal items (e.g. keys, cell phones, coats or bags), all the while maintaining the highest degree of weapons detection accuracy.
As part of an updated agreement with Ticketmaster, pedestal scanners have been installed at all entrances, club areas, and suites. This advancement aims to facilitate a rapid and touchless ticket scanning process, ensuring a faster and more convenient entry experience.
Cash registers have been equipped with a new point of sale system to better cater to guests, optimizing transactions to enable quicker checkouts and reducing wait times at our concession stands.
Upgraded Food and Beverage
Improved Speed & Convenience
Additional Walk-Thru Brus and Drink Mkts have been added, which feature grab-and-go beverage models paired with smart-checkout devices, throughout the stadium. A new self-service soda refill station, located in the upper deck, was also added so fans can fill up quickly and get back to the game.
Guests can skip the lines by taking advantage of newly improved mobile ordering on gameday, available via the Steelers Mobile App. Fans can place their order from their seat and pick up at designated concession locations.
New Locations & Concepts
Six Little Caesars pizza outlets have been introduced throughout the stadium to pair with additional locations of fan favorites Auntie Anne’s and Caliente Pizza. These new locations will help broaden both the quality and variety of offerings throughout the stadium.
Steel City Classics, a new walk-in express area, located in the east and west upper deck, will allow fans to select their favorite concessions and checkout themselves, so they can quickly get back to the game.
New food and beverage items have been added to the roster including delights like fudge puppies, chipped ham grilled cheese, poutine tots, and more. At all Spirits 33 locations, fans can look for two new signature cocktails featuring Dubliner Irish Whiskey in a Steelers mason jar, that fans can take home.
