All signs point to the Steelers coming back to Latrobe for Training Camp in 2021


The Steelers and Cowboys may begin training camp on July 21, 2021, as they play in the Hall of Fame Football game. On July 31st the NFL plans to implement league-wide practices and host fan events to make up for not having anything in 2020. That means the NFL will allow fans to attend training camp this season, but they will also leave it up to State and Local mandates to give discretion on how many fans can attend.


For the first time in 50 years, the Steelers did not hold training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe during the 2020 season. Instead, they held training camp at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Pittsburgh's South Side. Covid-19 put a strain on the NFL's season in 2020, but at least we got to watch football while experiencing a pandemic in the United States.


This year Art Rooney II says the Steeler's plans are to hold training camp in Latrobe: “As we sit here today, our plan is to have training camp in Latrobe,” Art Rooney II said. “We still have a ways to go to get there, but I think there’s a pretty good chance that’s going to be able to happen. We’re still hopeful we’re going to have some form of offseason program, and it’s probably not going to start on time but I think it’s important particularly for the young players that we get back to having an offseason program and then a full training camp and preseason games. I think we need to have that to help the young players continue to develop.”
