Heinz Field is no more. Just over two decades after opening its doors alongside the Ohio River, the Steelers’ longtime home will be renamed Acrisure Stadium starting in 2022. Heinz, the famous Pittsburgh-headquartered ketchup company, has opted out of extending its naming rights deal for the North Shore venue, per Andrew Fillipponi, with Acrisure, a Michigan-based insurance brokerage, stepping in as the new sponsor of the Steelers’ stomping grounds.
Steelers owner Art Rooney said earlier this year that negotiations were still ongoing between the team and Kraft Heinz regarding stadium naming rights, leaving the door open for a potential change. Heinz originally struck a 20-year, $57 million agreement to sponsor the team’s stadium, then agreed to a one-year extension in 2021.
