On Monday it was announced by the Steelers that Heinz Field would be allowed a capacity of 2,500 with the new orders and advisories set by Governor Tom Wolf and State Health Director Dr. Levine. The new guidelines go into effect on Friday, Nov. 27.
With the Steelers-Ravens game being postponed to Sunday at 1:15 p.m. due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Ravens' organization, the Steelers won't be able to host fans at Sunday's game. The game between the Steelers and Ravens was originally scheduled for Thursday at 8:25 p.m.
Steelers spokesperson, Burt Lauten, released a statement today about the team not being permitted to host fans at Heinz Field for Sunday's game due to the new guidelines. Family and friends of players and the organization are still allowed to attend games.
Based on the new orders and advisories from the state of Pennsylvania that go into effect on Friday, unfortunately we will not be permitted to host fans in the seating bowl on Sunday at Heinz Field for our rescheduled game against the Baltimore Ravens. The new state orders will not permit more than 2,500 people at our games, including players, coaches, stadium staff, etc.
We are disappointed for those fans who had planned on attending Thursday night's game. Our Ticket Office will communicate soon with those fans who purchased tickets from us regarding credits and refunds.
The Steelers Ticket Office reached out to fans who had purchased tickets for the game on Wednesday afternoon and informed them that all transactions for the Nov. 26 game will be canceled.
The email stated: "Season ticket holders will receive a credit to their account. Individual game ticket purchasers will receive additional communication from the point-of-sale (i.e.: Ticketmaster, StubHub, SeatGeek)."
