About PITTSBURGH STEELERS SPORTS, INC.
Pittsburgh Steelers Sports has forged a championship tradition in Steel Town. The company owns and operates the Pittsburgh Steelers professional football franchise, which has won a record six Super Bowl titles. The team joined the National Football League in 1933 as the Pirates (renamed in 1940) but claimed only eight winning seasons during its first 40 years. However, the Steelers dominated the 1970s when the team won four championships under head coach Chuck Noll with the help of such stars as Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swann. Pittsburgh won its latest Super Bowl following the 2008 season. Dan Rooney, son of late team founder Art Rooney, and his son Art Rooney II lead a group that owns the Steelers.
