About 25% of all seats at Acrisure Stadium offer some type of shade or cover. Below is a sample of seats that are at least partially covered or shaded at different times of the day. To search for tickets or to find out if your seats are protected from the sun or rain, follow the link for the seat finder.
Located on the second level of Acrisure Stadium behind the north endzone are the 200 Level North seating sections. These seats will enjoy the same nicely elevated viewing and smaller sections as the club seats on the sideline, but do not receive the same upscale amenities.
Excellent views of the south endzone scoreboard and plays at the near endzone are some of the top features to these seats. For fans that are looking for covered seats at Acrisure Stadium, the last few rows of sections 219-226 are protected by the overhanging upper deck above providing some relief from the weather on extreme days.
Each section in this location has just 16 lettered rows, making for easy trips to and from the concourse.
Lower Level Corner Seating
In the corners of the lowest level at Acrisure Stadium, these sections will have an above average view of the whole field while being some of the best for seeing scoring plays that are occurring in the near endzone. If you want to sit as close to the field as possible, avoid sections 103-105, 117-119, 127-129, and 141-143 as they do not extend all the way to the field.
Sections 116, 119, and 144 are located right next to the tunnels where the players enter and exit the field, making them a good option for fans that are looking for the opportunity to see the players up close. Most sections here have between 24 and 34 lettered rows, while sections 102, 116, 126, and 140 are far smaller have no more than 11 lettered rows.
Lower Level North Seating
Fans in the Lower Level North endzone sections will have great views of scoring plays at the north endzone and excellent line of sight to the large scoreboard at the opposite end of the field. These seats are a good option for fans who want to stay close to field level but would prefer not to pay midfield prices.
Sit in sections 122 and 123 for placement between the uprights and be one of the first to know whether a critical field goal will be good. Sections in this location have between 30-33 letterred rows of seating.
Lower Level Sideline Seating
Lower level sideline seating is home to some of the best tickets at Acrisure Stadium. Close proximity to the field and prime location near the 50 yard line offers some of the best views, and keeps both demand and ticket prices on the higher end of the scale.
Fans can sit at midfield directly behind the home bench in sections 133-136, while on the opposite side of midfield behind the visitors bench are sections 109-112. Sections in the Lower Level Sideline have between 31-34 lettered rows of seating, with row A being closest to the field.
Upper Level North Seating
On the highest tier of the stadium and behind the North Endzone, these seats are home to the furthest views and some of the cheapest Steeler tickets. Decent views of the large videoboard in the South endzone and scoring plays at the near endzone, but fans may struggle to catch all the details as the action moves to the south.
There is no roof or overhang in these sections, making them some of the most exposed to the elements at Acrisure Stadium. Sections in this location have 36 lettered rows of seating.
Upper Level Sideline Seating
Located just above the Club Level seats on the Acrisure Stadium seating chart are the Upper Level Sideline sections, which offer some of the cheapest tickets for football games. Being on the highest level will mean some of the furthest views, but fans looking for affordable midfield seats will find them here in sections 510-511 and 534-535.
As you get closer to the south endzone, views of the large videoboard begin to be more difficult, and we recommend that scoreboard watchers avoid sections 504-507 and 538-541. The last few rows in these sections will be protected by a small roof, providing far views but decent cover from the weather. Sections in this seating location have 36 lettered rows.

Seating Tips & Advice
"Best Seats in the Stadium" - Row M in sections 234 and 235 has the best seats in the stadium for Steelers fans. Sections 234 and 235 are at midfield with an excellent view of the game and a good view of the scoreboard. Row M has a wall with a low rail in front, so you will not be bothered by fans standing up in the seats in front of you. Row A is great too, but it is exposed to rain and snow not under cover like row M. The very best seats are away from the aisle (not the first two seats) because the rail is higher at the end of the aisle. Seats 3,4,5,6 in row M of section 234 and the equivalent seats on the high-numbered side of row M in section 235 are the best in the stadium. Those seats are all inside the 43 yard lines. The climate-controlled Club with two huge screens (at least 20 ft wide) is a few steps away.
Where's the best place to park at Heinz Field for a Steelers game?
Gameday is approaching and you're psyched to see your first game at Heinz Field. You've had your tickets for months but then begin to wonder about parking. Is parking for a Steelers game easy? Are there enough spots? Can I take public transportation?
Parking is often one of the most over-looked and frustrating aspects about attending a football game (especially in the NFL). Most fans who wing it end up paying absurd amounts or have to walk insanely far to the stadium. Fortunately, the Steelers and Heinz Field offer a wide array of options for gameday parking. From public transportation to water shuttles to pre-sold parking, your journey from Home to Heinz can become a little easier if you're prepared.
Best Parking Options Ranked
1. Pre-Sold parking in the North Shore
Pros: Close & Hassle-Free
Cons: Expensive & Limited Availability
If you're lucky enough to have a parking pass, it's most likely one of the 6,000+ spots closest to the stadium in the North Shore. Even if you don't have a pass, you can contact ALCO Parking, the Carnegie Science Center (412-237-3400) or Rivers Casino (412-231-7777) to inquire about pre-sold spots.
2. Reserved third-party parking (downtown and North Shore)
Pros: Hassle-Free, Pass on your phone (some cases)
Cons: Variable pricing, Most spaces require >0.5 mile walk
This is what RateYourSeats.com employees use for most out-of-town games. There are many services, but we prefer Parkwhiz (note: we have an affiliation with Parkwhiz, but they did not sponsor this post). These services allow you to purchase a reserved spot ahead of time. The reason we use this option (especially as out-of-towners) is that you get a specific address to put in a GPS instead of circling the stadium looking for open parking or a specific lot. Most spots can be reserved for less than $20.
3. First-come, first-serve parking downtown
Pros: Inexpensive, App shows parking availability
Cons: Unreserved, Longest Walks
Fans on a budget will want to take advantage of $5 and $7 parking downtown. There are ten lots (see the image below) all within 1.25 miles (about 30 minute walk) of Heinz Field. The farthest lots (8 and 9 on the image) do have shuttles running directly from the lot to the stadium for a small fee. If the weather is nice and you don't mind walking, this is a great way to save money. Arrive early for a chance to park in one of the closer lots and to avoid being shut out altogether. Download the ParkPGH App for real-time availability.
