Paul Child Stand
The East end in Highmark Stadium is where the Steel Army calls home. In 2015 the supporters section was renamed the Paul Child Stand in honor of Pittsburgh soccer legend Paul Child.
The Paul Child Stand is general admission with no assigned seats — where you end up at the end of a game may be different from where you started. For the full 90 minutes the Steel Army singing, chanting, and drumming. Come prepared to bring energy and bring the noise.
We are in close proximity to families and kids, and try to limit egregious displays of inappropriate behavior. Excessive and organized swearing is discouraged.
Steel Army members and guests are encouraged to bring their own flags and/or banners to wave or display during the game. We also have our own collection placed around the section. If you see a flag lying there grab it and go wild! At the end of the match please leave any Steel Army flags in the section. One of our members will be around to collect them.
The Steel Army deploys smoke devices per the rules and regulations set by the league and Riverhounds front office. Smoke devices are only allowed to be set off by authorized Steel Army members. DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN. DO NOT HANDLE THE SMOKE. Any unauthorized users of smoke devices will be expelled from the stadium.
Rule #1 in the Paul Child Stand: Don’t be a jagoff. We’re all there to have a good time — so let’s keep it that way.
