Make sure to include former Steelers quarterback and future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger on that list.
Roethlisberger took to Twitter and let the world know his feelings regarding the big change not long after the announcement was made.
I can't believe it, it doesn't seem right or real! Home will always be Heinz Field! I will never forget the last game, and all the amazing fans at FOREVER HEINZ! — Ben.#ForeverHeinz— BigBen7.com (@_BigBen7) July 11, 2022

It makes total sense for Roethlisberger to feel this way. Heinz Field was his second home for his entire 17-year career. Acrisure signed a 15-year deal with the Steelers that runs through the 2036 season.
Who knew 2022 would represent the end of monumental Steeler eras?
But, there is still good news for Roethlisberger and the ketchup loyalists: The Steelers will still have some type of partnership with Heinz. Who knows, maybe they’ll return to the top, one day.
