The Pittsburgh Steelers are my home town team.
They were founded way back in 1933 and are famously the oldest franchise in the AFC. Originally the Steelers were known as the PIttsburgh Pirates and after a name change they have moved around Pittsburgh as well.
The Steelers battle it out in their stadium and home known as Heinz Field. This is a fantastic stadium and holds in excess of 68,000 spectators creating an atmosphere which really is second to none.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are instantly recognisable and they wear black and gold kits, which they have done ever since 1933.
