Tomorrow, but you have to be on the season ticket waiting list and received an account number from the Steelers Ticket office.

They may have some avaliable via steelers.com's ticketexchange. Thing is, people will charge more for Playoffs then regular season.

Yeah, thats where the big problem comes in, I can see these tickets quadrupling in face value, and they will sell because I cant see the stadium being sold out on the Playoff game.

They can't do it though. They can't charge more then face value. The only thing that is allowed to jack the price the surcharge that Ticketmaster charges.

I hate the waiting list.

You hate the waiting list because you are on it & it is taking forever... or you hate that we get first shot at the playoff tickets....

because, really it is not hard to get on the waiting list, all you do is send in a letter... doesn't cost anything... Plus, then you then also get a nice Christmas card from the Steelers every year..

Info direct from the Steelers website on how to get on the waiting list:


Is there a waiting list for season tickets?
Currently there is a waiting list for season tickets. If you would like to be placed on this list please send a written request to: Pittsburgh Steelers, PO Box 6763, Pittsburgh, PA 15212. You will receive written confirmation that your name has been placed on the waiting list.

6 years would be great but I have heard alot of different answers. I guess heaven can wait. Please tell me if sec 525 row HH are bleacher seats. Are these seats any good. I have them for the 1st play off game. I sat in sec 540 row L for the Cincy game, these seats were not that bad.

Hello all. I got on the wait list this summer and to my suprise I got a letter telling me I have a shoot at playoff tickets. Well I scored 4. I will be traveling from Atlanta.

I have sec. 526 row. Z. I assume they are bleacher sits. I'm I correct?

Thanks for the help. Never been to Heinz field BTW. Can't wait. Also got tickets for sunday at TN. Can't wait. anyone going to that game let me know.. we will be in lot T.

The upper level "north endzone" is all bleacher seats.. this is sections 518-527

http://www.steelers-ticket.com/images/Steelers-seating.gif

From everything I have read, I am guessing the top row is "LL" in this section

they aren't "terrible"... but can be cold... you do get a great view of the city & the jumbotron & can see the field just fine.

LOL... I'm in section 533 not far at all from LL, so I suppose I'll be a little chilly. It's near the middle of the field, though!! :)

If we make it to the AFC Championship with home field advantage, I won't care at all where I'm sitting. That will be magical for me.

actually LL is the top row. there is about 38 rows in the upper level.

Before I got my seats I was on the waiting list and my husband was on the jets list - then the Jets started charging $50 :cash::cash: to be on the list every year.

F that! There was no way we were going to pay to be on the list.

I waited 18 years for my Steelers tickets. Imagine if I had to pay??!

nojobny
12-30-2008, 07:44 AM
533 LL are good seats, I think in that area they go to ZZ . Also LL will be under the roof if it rains.

No, they only go to LL. My seats are in HH & JJ and there's 2 more rows behind me.

They're great seats and you are under the roof but it's a windy day, it gets chilly and you don't get the sun because it will be setting behind you.

I hope everyone who is going to the 1st playoff game has a great time - be sure to dress warm. January in Pittsburgh can sometimes be very bitter. :hug:

I much prefer to watch the game from my warm, cozy LR and not have to deal with drunks, boo-birds and potty mouths. I can sit on a nice warm toilet seat without the fear of sitting in someone else's wee wee, grab a cold one from the frig whenever I like and not have to wait in endlessly long lines and cheer my Steelers on in my birthday suit if I so choose! :chuckle::applaudit:

There are some downsides as you mentioned.. BUT..

There is absolutely positively no place else I would rather be at than the game.

Top 10 reasons why to see the game at Heinz Field:

10. The walks up the ramps to the 500 section is good exercise!
9. Twirling your terrible towel indoors isn't nearly as fun.
8. Hi-Fiving & Hugging other Steeler fans you have never ever met in your life before.
7. Nachos with as many jalepenos as you want from the big jug by the ketchup
6. Witnessing the creatvity of other fans Steelers dress & props. (or being creative yourself!)
5. They don't sell game day programs at the 7-11 in Cranberry
4. Being able to witness the introduction of the Steelers rather than watching Chris Collinsworth drivel on.
3. Walking down the ramps going out after a winning game & hearing loud, simultaneous chants of "I've got a feelin' Pittsburghs going the the Superbowl"
2. RENEGADE!
1. Yelling your heart out so much that you lose your voice, but knowing you are HELPING the team!

What row are you? Here is a picture of my view from 513 last game.. I was in row B... so nice up front... but you can see I had a great view.

The jumbotron is big, from 509 you will be able to see the plays develop & everything... really good seats IN MY OPINION... its not like watching it on TV where you see things close up, but the Jumbotron shows replays anyways & IMO it is nice to see the whole field all the time.

this picture is a really crappy cell phone pic... real life is much better

10. The walks up the ramps to the 500 section is good exercise! TRUE, but I can ride the stationary bike while watching the game!

9. Twirling your terrible towel indoors isn't nearly as fun. SURE IT IS! I don't have to worry about getting hit in the side of the face by an ignoramus!

8. Hi-Fiving & Hugging other Steeler fans you have never ever met in your life before. HAVING beer spilled in your hair and on your back by drunks - no thanks! These same Steelers fans that you've hugged and hi-fived will run you over as you're trying to get to your car in the lots.

7. Nachos with as many jalepenos as you want from the big jug by the ketchup
THERE goes that good exercise walking up the ramps to the 500 level.

6. Witnessing the creatvity of other fans Steelers dress & props. (or being creative yourself!) I guess I have the benefit of living in Pittsburgh so I see it all the time.

5. They don't sell game day programs at the 7-11 in Cranberry
I can buy a prime rib dinner for what those programs cost - LOL!

4. Being able to witness the introduction of the Steelers rather than watching Chris Collinsworth drivel on. VERY TRUE.

3. Walking down the ramps going out after a winning game & hearing loud, simultaneous chants of "I've got a feelin' Pittsburghs going the the Superbowl"

I don't miss feeling like a sardine in a can trying to walk down the ramps after a game - not in the least! I also don't miss the post-game traffic!

2. RENEGADE! TRUE!

1. Yelling your heart out so much that you lose your voice, but knowing you are HELPING the team!

I only live about 8 miles from HF, but I yell loud enough that I'm sure the players hear me. And . . . . I'm less likely to end up in the slammer for smackin' the living shit out of the boo-birds! :applaudit:

Dom - don't know why you bothered to answer on Mel's behalf. This was all in fun and I'm sure Mel is very aware of that. :noidea:

Not as many boo birds as you think there is.

I had season tix for over 20 years at TRS and have attended many games at HF since it was built. Maybe you sit in a section where there aren't a lot of boo birds, but I've witnessed it first hand in quite a few of the sections I've sat in, particularly at HF.

Big deal if it does. No harm, no foul.

Considering I just had major surgery to my head less than 6 weeks ago, I'd say otherwise.

Really? You show me a restaraunt that sells Prime Rib for $5, and dinner is on me

Again - my post was made in jest. However - I can give you the names of at least 3 restaurants in the area who serve up a terrific Prime Rib dinner for under $10.00. I regress - the cost of 2 programs instead of 1. :chuckle:

This should be #1 in my opinion.

I've been to about 15 NFL stadiums, and numerous college stadiums for football games in my 37 years. I was at Heinz Field for the first time in my life this year. I went with my cousin to the Dallas game.

By far and way, the Renegade bit with the defense is the most awesome, most inspiring, most intense crowd exciting event I have ever heard. Heck, I am getting goose bumps right now just typing about it.
