The Pittsburgh Steelers have been playing home games at Heinz Field for a long, long time — since 2001. But that won’t be the case anymore.

According to Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan, the two sides could not reach a deal.

President Art Rooney was optimistic the two sides could strike a deal earlier this season. But, unfortunately, that isn’t the case.

The ketchup bottles in the stadium might need to go away, and who knows what the new name will be.

Heinz paid $57 million during the time of the arrangement, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, and the new rights — for whoever takes it — will be a tremendous amount of cash.

This is tough news for Steelers fans, especially for the generation who haven’t seen anything else.

The Name Suggestions For Heinz Field Are Priceless

When the news came, people flocked to react to the disappearance of the iconic name. But, more than that, some hilarious name suggestions came out.

All signs point to the University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center being the lead horse in this race. The Steelers’ practice facility is owned by that company, so them taking the stadium makes sense also.

But, for most, it will always be known as Heinz Field.

So, Heinz Field is no more. It will take some getting used to. But, on Monday morning, the new name was announced: Acrisure Stadium.
