The Steelers Files the Lawsuit Against Sports & Exhibition Authority

The Steelers filed the lawsuit against Sports & Exhibition Authority. Sports & Exhibition Authority disagreed over which entity is responsible for paying for 3,000 additional seats at Heinz Field. Their arguments before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Joseph M. James hinged on two paragraphs in the team's lease of Heinz Field from the SEA that talk about capital improvements. Steelers attorney Arthur H. Stroyd Jr. said the seating upgrade to the south end of the North Shore stadium should be considered a capital improvement, and the SEA should be forced to pay two-thirds of the cost, or roughly $20 million. Heinz Field ranks 25th out of 31 NFL stadiums in terms of seating capacity. The seating issue is part of a larger disagreement over upgrades at the 12-year-old stadium. The Steelers also want to add a scoreboard to the north end zone and be repaid for refurbishing its audio-visual control room. The total cost of the upgrades has been estimated at about $40 million. The Steelers filed the lawsuit against the SEA after a deal to finance the addition fell apart. A proposed agreement would have paid for the expansion by charging fans an extra dollar to buy a ticket to the game and adding $2 to $3 to the cost to park around Heinz Field during home games.
