The Pittsburgh Steelers announced today that they have submitted plans to the Sports and Exhibition Authority to add a new club section to Heinz Field for the 2006 season. The project will add approximately 700 club seats plus 20,000 sq. ft. of enclosed club space in the north end of the stadium. The capacity of Heinz Field will increase to 65,050.
The new seats will be offered to those on the season ticket waiting list and some to existing season ticket holders who have previously requested to relocate to club seats.
The new seats will carry a seat license and will be priced in the range of the existing club seats at Heinz Field.
Construction on the project is scheduled to begin next month at a cost of approximately $4.0 million.
Also, the Steelers are looking at return man Tim Dwight, most recently of the New England Patriots.
A former Pro Bowl return guy, Dwight would help ease of the loss of Antwaan Randle El.
