    The Steelers want to add 3,000 more seats to Heinz Field. The Steelers are seeking to add the 3,000 seats in the south end zone of Heinz Field. In the lawsuit, the team maintained the SEA is required to fund two-thirds of the cost for the seats under a designated expansion section in its Heinz Field lease. After squabbling for nearly a year over who will pay to install 3,000 additional seats at Heinz Field, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority are trying to reach a settlement, both sides announced Thursday. Mark Hart, the Steelers' director of strategic planning and development, said after a hearing before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Joseph James today that the parties will "engage in discussions regarding a possible resolution of our dispute." “I don’t think we’re at a stage where each of the parties can say what they’re willing to do at this point,” Hart said.
