Steelers threatening lawsuit over stadium seats



Published: Thu, November 1, 2012 @ 12:47 p.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have filed notice they’ll sue the city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority over stalled plans to add 3,000 seats to the team’s 11-year-old stadium, Heinz Field.

The Steelers contend their lease requires the authority to pay about two-thirds of the estimated $39 million the team expects it will cost to add the end zone seats and a new video scoreboard those fans can see.

The team thought the authority could raise its share through a $1 ticket surcharge and an extra $2-$3 parking fee, but Alco Parking Co., which operates the stadium lots, has balked at that.

As a result, the authority — which runs the city’s sports stadiums and venues like its convention center — has so far refused to foot its share of the looming bill, the team says.

It's not the Steelers that are paying for this - it's the company that owns & operates the Heinz Stadium, the "Sports & Exhibition Authority."

It's like renting an apartment where the landlord promised some addition, but never delivered on that promise.
