Pitt introduced a new digital ticketing system this year with a multitude of capabilities. One important component is that fans are able to share their tickets if they are unable to attend a game. Fans can share tickets with friends and family, sell their tickets online, or donate to a charity. For more information, visit the ticket center.
Will Call will open three hours prior to kickoff this season at Gate A. Walk-up ticket sales will take place at Gate B.
Pitt fans are asked to arrive early to the stadium due to enhanced security measures, which includes a handheld metal detector. The detector will replace pat-downs. Express lanes will be available for fans that are not carrying in additional permitted items into Heinz Field.
Your gameday experience will be heightened this year once inside the stadium as well. Upgrades to Heinz Field's scoreboard capabilities allow us to provide a better fan experience including enhanced camera angles, more complete coverage and more information to those in attendance. The upgrades make Heinz Field one of the top technologically advanced stadiums in college athletics.
