Pittsburgh's Sports History

The people of Pittsburgh are known for cultivating their “yinzer” spirit and mixing it with the roaring crowds from adoring sports fans pouring throughout the city. Anywhere you look, you’ll find black and gold threads woven into pure pride and glory for the hometown teams all year round.

“The Steel Curtain” of the Pittsburgh Steelers is a force to be reckoned with both on and off the field of Acrisure Stadium. Sundays in the fall is what many call a holy day for the city as the Steelers take on the great NFLs teams each week. Since 1933, the 6-time Super Bowl Champions have made their mark in history and generated fans spanning the generations. Mike Webster, Jack Lambert, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Jerome Bettis, Hines Ward, Ben Rothlisberger and Troy Palamalu are just a few of the incredible players to wear the black and gold jersey.

In the late fall, you can find the masses gearing up for the puck to drop at PPG Paints Arena. In 1967, the Pittsburgh Penguins made their NHL debut as the hometown Pittsburgh team. Since its inception, the Penguins franchise has garnered the Stanley Cup championship win a total of 5 times. Pittsburgh quickly became a hockey powerhouse with the likes of Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jaromir Jagr, Chris Kunitz, Sergei Gonchar, Matt Murray, and Joe Mullen all gracing the ice to help make Pittsburgh a staple within the hockey community.

“When I put on my uniform, I feel I am the proudest man on earth.” – Roberto Clemente. Clemente was one of the greatest players in Major League Baseball history who spent his entire 18 season career playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates. For more than 135 years, the Pittsburgh Pirates have been the home team to many greats such as Clemente, Barry Bonds, Andrew McCutchen, Jason Bay, Willie Stargell, Honus Wagner, and Bill Mazeroski. These men are just some of the players you may find on the back of any given Pittsburgh Pirates baseball card; rooting the history of the Pirates for all ages to enjoy. Every spring, the diamond takes center stage in the city of Pittsburgh, the sights and sounds ricochet through the home turf of PNC Park, what many call the best baseball park in all of America bringing in thousands of fans each night.
