PITTSBURGH — After it was announced the Pittsburgh Steelers 2021 season schedule was the hardest in the NFL, the team is looking forward to having fans at Heinz Field.

Steelers President Art Rooney II said they’re preparing to have a full-capacity crowd.

“The trends are all headed in the right direction, and we’re excited about getting our fans back in the stadium,” he told Steelers.com.

As for Training Camp, it’s still uncertain if it will take place at St. Vincent College in Latrobe.

“I wish I could say it’s a done deal,” Rooney said.

He said the team is preparing to have it in Latrobe, but there are still some issues to iron out with the Players Association and COVID-19 protocols. Last year was the first time it wasn’t held in Latrobe in more than 50 years.
