Seit 1933 in der National Football League: Pittsburgh Steelers
Das Football-Team aus Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania ist eines der ältesten noch bestehenden in der NFL. Die Steelers wurden 1933 gegründet, erste Titel gewannen sie allerdings erst rund 40 Jahre später. Doch dann kamen auch gleich die großen Erfolge: Viermal in den 70ern, 2005 und 2008 brachten die Pittsburgh Steelers den Super Bowl Sieg nach Hause. Seit 2002 gehören sie der Northern Division der AFC an und laufen in schwarz-goldenen Trikots auf den Platz. Die American-Football-Mannschaft wurde zwar als Pittsburgh Pirats gegründet, doch 1940 wurde bereits der heutige Name eingeführt, der dann mit dreijähriger Unterbrechung 1945 endgültig zurückkehrte. Der Name Steelers erhielt das Team durch Pittsburghs Stellung als größter Stahlerzeuger in den USA bis in die 70er Jahre.
Erstklassiger Football auf dem beeindruckenden Heinz Field
Die Steelers tragen seit 2001 ihre Spiele auf dem Heinz Field aus. Angefangen hat ihre Karriere auf dem Forbes Field, auf dem 30 Jahre von der Mannschaft American Football gespielt wurde. Mit Zwischenstops im Pitt Stadium ging es dann von 1970 bis 2000 ins Three Rivers Stadium, das ein Jahr später abgerissen wurde. Das derzeitige Pittsburgh Steelers Stadion bietet Platz für mehr als 65.000 Football-Fans.

Weitere bedeutende ehemalige Football-Spieler der Steelers waren Jerome Bettis, Joe Greene und Mike Webster.
