Art Rooney II is 'hopeful' for fans in the stands for the Steelers 2021 Season




In 2020 Heinz field only saw about 3% of fans during the Steeler's entire season. Down 97% the overall home game attendance was 15,877 people attending one of eight games at Heinz field. The Steelers accounted for only 1.4% of the NFL's attendance throughout the year. The NFL is predicting to suffer a $2.8 billion dollar hit in game-day revenues due to Covid-19.


Art Rooney II recently sat down with KDKA’s Bob Pompeani and Rooney addressed a number of topics including fans in the stand for the 2021 season. Rooney was disappointed the Steelers couldn't have more fans in the stands during the 2020 season. He said he thought the Steelers have a great game plan to have fans in the stadium safely. Going forward Rooney is hopeful more vaccines will roll out. Art is also hopeful the Steelers can head back to St. Vincent for training camp in 2021 as well. It sounds like the Steelers are really pressing on having as many fans as they can for the 2021 season.
