Fan Reminders For Steelers Fans For Sunday’s Game Vs Titans

Heinz Field

New Heinz Field Bag Policy In Effect; Fans Encouraged To Arrive Early To Avoid Traffic

The Steelers host the Tennessee Titans at Heinz Field on Sunday, September 8, and kickoff is set for 1 p.m. The matchup will be televised on CBS (locally KDKA-TV, channel 2).
Fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid anticipated heavy traffic and last minute crowds at the gate, and to enjoy in-stadium pregame activities. All gates will open at 11 a.m.

Beginning in 2013, all NFL teams have implemented a new safety policy at stadiums that will make the security process more efficient and effective. The policy affects the type and size of bags that are permitted into the stadium, not the items that fans normally need to bring to a game.
Heinz Field encourages fans to not bring in any type of bags. However, the following style and size bag, package or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

    • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.” (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags are available through, at all Steelers Sideline Stores and at, or
    • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
    • Logo on bag cannot exceed 4.5” tall by 3.4” wide.
    • Small clutch purses, approximately the size of a hand, or 4.5” x 6.5” with or without a handle or strap, may be carried in the stadium along with one of the clear bag options.
    • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at each gate.
    • Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag, however diaper bags are not permitted.
    • Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse.


The Steelers and Heinz Field management are advising fans attending Saturday’s game about some traffic, access and security matters, including the following stadium policies:

  • Signs and apparel with foul language or inappropriate messages are prohibited in Heinz Field. Fans with signage or apparel bearing foul language will not be allowed into Heinz Field or will be subject to expulsion from the stadium.
  • Media must present identification and check-in prior to being admitted to the stadium.
  • Media planning on exiting and re-entering the stadium at any point on game day must have their credential “scanned-out” before exiting in order for it to be valid for re-entry.

Heinz Field management recommends that all fans lock their vehicles and keep personal belongings out of sight before entering the stadium. Fans are advised to not leave valuables in their vehicles during games.
