Steelers Game Day Activities Announced;
Fans Encouraged To Arrive Early and Enjoy Heinz Field Experience

The Pittsburgh Steelers are encouraging fans to arrive early to enjoy the many activities surrounding game day at Heinz Field at Sunday’s 2011 home game against the Tennessee Titans.

In support of the NFL’s campaign with the American Cancer Society to gain awareness, Sunday’s game against the Titans marks the Steelers’ annual Breast Cancer Awareness Game, which is being co-sponsored by Ford and UPMC Cancer Centers. This year’s campaign, A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives, is targeted at encouraging annual mammograms for women over the age of 40. Pink Terrible Towels will be given to each fan at all stadium gates and 29 breast cancer survivors will be honored in a pre-game ceremony.

Representatives from the Neighborhood Ford Store and UPMC will present a check for $10,000 to the Pittsburgh affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, of which Ford is a long-time sponsor both locally and nationally. To date, Ford has dedicated more than $105 million to the cause. In addition, the Neighborhood Ford Store, represented by breast cancer survivors, Liz Dwyer, Parts and Service Regional Manager for Ford in Pittsburgh, and Kathy Wagler, owner of Crivelli Ford in Aliquippa, Pa., will present a 2011 Ford Warriors in Pink Quilt to representatives of UPMC for display at one of their breast cancer treatment facilities.

The Steelers 1st-IN-GOAL promotion, sponsored by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will allow fans who enter Heinz Field early on game days the opportunity to win exclusive prizes from the team. The first 25,000 fans who enter the stadium will be given scratch-off cards, which will be distributed by volunteers from Ford and UPMC at all gates as well as suite and club entrances. Fans will have the opportunity to win pre-game field passes and the chance to participate in the pre-game Terrible Towel Twirl on the Steelers’ sideline just prior to kickoff, breast cancer awareness coaches sideline hats, Stage AE concert tickets, free concessions (Coca-Cola fountain drinks, Augustine’s Stadium Pizza, SilverStar Super Hot Dogs) throughout the stadium, private tours of Heinz Field, Terrible Towels, 2012 Steelers Fan Blitz passes, and $10 of Steelers’ merchandise at any Steelers’ Sideline Store.

Fans can stop by Stage AE prior to entering the stadium to participate in the Official Tailgate Zone of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tickets to Sunday’s game will be given away along with many other prizes. Admission is free and doors open at 9 a.m.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Fan Cam will take place during kickoff and will give fans the chance to prove they were at Heinz Field for Sunday’s matchup against the Titans. Fans are asked to be in their seats early before kickoff each and every home game, and at that time, an ultra-high-def, 5-billion pixel image will be shot on the field. This 360-degree virtual image will capture Heinz Field in its entirety, and it takes between 5-7 minutes to shoot. Fans will be able to “step inside” the image and look around Heinz Field for a frozen moment of time at kickoff. Follow the Steelers Official Facebook page to be notified as soon as the image is available on Monday for tagging and sharing with friends on Facebook, email or twitter.

The Steelers are participating all season in the “Let’s Tackle Recycling” campaign. At every Steelers home game, the Pennsylvania Resources Council and its partners are collecting aluminum cans, glass containers and plastic bottles and cups at tailgating parties in the parking lots outside of Heinz Field. The “Let’s Tackle Recycling” campaign is sponsored by PRC and the Alcoa Foundation in partnership with Heinz Field, Alco Parking, City of Pittsburgh Environmental Services, Greenstar Recycling and the Sports & Exhibition Authority.

The following are additional highlights for fans for Sunday’s game:
  • Brynn Williams, niece of Mike and Kiya Tomlin, will sing the National Anthem.
  • Rock band, Bush, and TV star Billy Gardell, along with 1st-IN-GOAL pre-game field pass winners and season-ticket holder Keith Fisher, will help lead this week’s Terrible Towel Twirl.
  • The McDonald’s Steelers Kickoff Show will be broadcast from 11:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in the Coca-Cola Great Hall with Bob Pompeani and Edmund Nelson hosting the show on KDKA-TV.
  • The Corned Beef and Curry Band will perform prior to kickoff on the main concourse beginning at 11 a.m.
  • The Penn-Trafford High School Band will perform on the field just prior to kickoff and at halftime.
  • As a tribute to the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, this week’s Color Guard will feature an all-female Army Color Guard.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
