Croke Park to host Pittsburgh Steelers 'Watch Party'
The Pittsburgh Steelers in conjunction with Croke Park are pleased to announce details of their first ‘Watch Party’ which will take place at the iconic Dublin venue on Sunday, November 19 for the game against the Cleveland Browns.
A limited number of tickets will be made available for the event which will be hosted in the Hogan Stand Suite, and which will include full match coverage on multiple screens, analysis, entertainment, and hospitality in a very special atmosphere.
In keeping with the theme, we will be serving American Tailgate inspired food and beverages on the night. Steelers legends will be at the event, and fans will get an opportunity to mingle with some of their heroes. A special pop-up shop selling merchandise will also be open on the night so that fans can purchase Steelers jerseys and other merchandise.
Tickets for the party will be priced from €20 and will be available via Ticketmaster at 10am on the 8th of September.
“We’re excited about providing our fans on the island of Ireland – as well as potential new members of Steelers Nation - the chance to experience Steelers football in a fun and innovative fashion,” said Steelers Director of Business Development and Strategy, Dan Rooney.
Croke Park Stadium Director Peter McKenna said: “We are delighted to welcome the Pittsburgh Steelers and their team back to Croke Park for what is a very special event.
“The popularity of American Football in Ireland is undisputed and growing all the time and we are pleased to be able to partner with the Steelers for this event which is the latest indication of our growing relationship.
“We are confident that this will be an occasion to remember connecting Irish fans to American football and the NFL in a very special way – some of them for the first time.”
This event is the latest in a series of initiatives by the Steelers in Ireland since May, when the NFL announced that the team was awarded rights to expand their brand across the island of Ireland as part of the league’s Global Markets Programme.
Since that announcement at Croke Park on May 23 last, the Steelers have launched Irish social media channels and a podcast with a view to bolstering their presence and awareness across the island of Ireland. For more information visit: https://crokepark.ie/steelers
