Heinz Field Changing Name Ahead of 2022 Season
After 21 seasons as Heinz Field, the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers will have a new name when they begin the 2022 NFL season.
The team announced Monday a new 15-year deal with Acrisure to rename the home stadium as Acrisure Stadium. Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
"We are excited to partner with Acrisure for the naming rights to our stadium," said Steelers President Art Rooney II. "Acrisure provided us with an opportunity to ensure our stadium continues to be a valuable asset for our fans as well as keeping up with the market value of NFL stadiums. We are very appreciative to partner with Greg Williams and his company, and we look forward to a long, beneficial relationship for years to come."
Acrisure is a Financial tech which operates a top 10 global insurance broker.
Pittsburgh sports radio host Andrew Fillipponi was first to report that Heinz and the Steelers were ending their naming rights agreement that had spanned the last two decades plus.
Fillipponi then announced Monday morning that a Michigan-based insurance company Acrisure would take over naming rights beginning this season.
Heinz Corporation and the Steelers agreed to a one-year extension of the naming rights last summer.
In the tam release, the Steelers said this partnership will allow the franchise to invest in stadium amenities and improvements.
