Ketchup bottle removed from newly-renamed Acrisure Stadium

A crane arrived at Acrisure Stadium on Pittsburgh’s North Shore Monday to remove Heinz Field signage. Our Action Cam spotted the crane in place Monday morning. The removal comes one week after it was revealed that the North Shore stadium of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pitt Panthers would be Renamed Acrisure Stadium after more than 20 years as Heinz Field. Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 also spotted one of the iconic ketchup bottles also coming down from its longtime perch atop the scoreboard. Fans came out hoping to see the signs change.”It just so happened they changed the name this week. We were hoping we could get here and see the sign before they took it down,” Steelers fan Linda Herzog said. The bottle was one of the symbols Steelers fans were holding on to, hoping that the partnership the Steelers said they are keeping with Heinz would keep the bottles and Heinz Red Zone many fans have come to love. The enthusiasm for the team hasn’t wavered despite the lack of love for the new stadium name.”It’s a part of history, the ketchup bottles,” Francine Bliner said. “It’s kind of sad that it’s coming down.” The changes will be a common occurrence for the next several weeks as each and every Heinz Field sign comes down, replace with Acrisure ahead of the first game of the season.
