Arthur J. Rooney founded the NFL's Pittsburgh franchise in July 1933, but the team would be known as the Pittsburgh Pirates until its name changed in 1940. Although the team wouldn't see a single title win in the first four decades of being in the league, the Steelers' fortune changed by the '70s. Former head coach Chuck Noll took over the team in 1969 and eventually led league greats such as Terry Bradshaw, Jack Ham, Joe Greene, Franco Harris, Mel Blount and Jack Lambert to greatness. Between 1975 and 1980, the Steelers won four Super Bowls. The team won its fifth title in 2006 under coach Bill Cowher. Mike Tomlin took over coaching the following season and has remained the head coach ever since. With Super Bowl XLIII in 2009, the Steelers became the first team in NFL history to win six Super Bowl titles.

Who are some of the Pittsburgh Steelers' top rivals in the league?
The Cleveland Browns are perhaps one of the biggest rivals for the Steelers as both teams are in the same division and play twice every regular season. The Browns were founded in 1950 and would have mostly winning seasons during its first three decades. However, the tides have changed since the 1970s, and the Steelers have become the more successful franchise. As of the start of the 2019 season, Steelers lead in head-to-head matchups with the Browns 73–58–1. This includes two post-season wins by the Steelers. Some other rivals include fellow AFC North divisional foes the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Heinz Field, the Steelers' home stadium, can comfortably accommodate 68,400 Steelers and away fans. There are also 8,799 club seats available and 129 luxurious suites for those who like to have a more pampered experience during an NFL football game. Game day is noted for a strong presence of rabid home fans, many of whom wave the Pittsburgh "Terrible Towel" after big plays.
