Steelers are Taking Names in 2016

Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team. They are situated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They are part of NFL (National Football League) within the AFC (American Football Conference), North Divison. They hosted eleven conference championship games and won six Super Bowl titles. Their most recent championship appearance was in 2011 when they lost it.


Pittsburg Steelers are the oldest team in AFC being formed back in 1933. The team was founded by Art Rooney in whose family remained the ownership ever since. They were named after a baseball team which was not uncommon back in the day. They were popularly called the Rooneymen after their founder and in order to not confuse the football team with the baseball team.

Their recognizable colors are a combination of black and gold. The mascot for the team is named Steely McBeam.

When they first joined the league they were the Pittsburgh Pirates. They were struggling at first and it did take some considerable amount of time. Throughout the 1930s they didn’t manage to achieve any recognizable success. Soon before the 1940s, they renamed themselves from Pirates to Steelers becoming Pittsburgh Steelers.
