PITTSBURGH, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Before Topgolf® Pittsburgh opens this summer, residents and visitors can get a slice of the social experience that is sweeping the nation with Topgolf Crush. From June 7-10, sports fans, non-golfers and golfers alike can enjoy food, drinks, music and terrible towel waving while crushing golf balls from the stands of Heinz Field into giant targets on the football field. Tickets for Topgolf Crush Pittsburgh, presented by PNC Bank, will go on sale Tuesday, April 17 at noon EST via topgolf.com/crush.
"Topgolf Crush gives sports fans the opportunity of a lifetime to crush golf balls at their favorite venues, and we can't wait to bring the experience to the legendary Heinz Field," said Topgolf Media President YuChiang Cheng. "The combination of food, music and friendly competition will give Pittsburgh a preview of the entertainment experience they can expect when our new venue opens in Bridgeville this summer. We are so excited to join the community and be a part of this amazing city."
Topgolf Crush features Topgolf's Toptracer Range technology that tracks the flight path of the golf balls, instantly scoring every shot in a virtual Topgolf game, so players can challenge others to competition while they aim for giant targets ranging from 40 to 150 yards away on the field.
Operating daily from 9 a.m. to 10:45 p.m., Topgolf Crush Pittsburgh will also feature Heinz Field concessions and a DJ for those wanting to keep the fun going before or after their tee time. After dark, the targets will glow and light up the field for a truly unique night golf experience.
"We're proud that Topgolf has selected Pittsburgh and Heinz Field as the next venue for Topgolf Crush," said Vice President of Stadium Operations and Management Jimmie Sacco. "This event will be unlike anything else we've hosted at the stadium, and it's sure to be an unforgettable experience for Steelers and Panthers fans, golfers and even non-golfers looking for an out-of-the-box and fun way to spend their weekend."
Tee times for Topgolf Crush Pittsburgh are sold in pairs and reserved in one-hour increments. Prices start at $55 for general admission and $200 for VIP packages. VIP packages include game play, food and beverage, a limited-edition Black Clover Topgolf Crush cap, a complimentary Topgolf Lifetime Membership and $10 off Topgolf game play, redeemable at any U.S. Topgolf location, excluding Topgolf Las Vegas.
"People are hooked on Topgolf, and joining together along with the iconic Pittsburgh Steelers brand makes perfect sense," said Lou Cestello, head of regional markets and Pittsburgh regional president for PNC Bank. "This is a terrific way to bring the Pittsburgh community together for a fun summer experience and the opportunity to tee off right into the end zone at Heinz Field."
