The road to a Super Bowl championship is a long one. For the Pittsburgh Steelers and their fans, they hope the road begins at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.

This year will mark the 50th anniversary of trainingcamp being held at Saint Vincent College.

To mark the occasion, the Steelers announced an anniversary celebration event, which will be held on Sunday, July 26.

The day’s events begin at noon and with the Steelers Experience, which will include interactive areas,live music and more.

Fans will also have a chance to win several prizes, including pro shop gift cards and VIP experiences.

At 11:30 a.m., fans are invited to attend the Black and Gold service in Saint Vincent Basilica.

Practice begins at 2:55 p.m., where Chris Jamison will sing the National Anthem.

If you can’t make it to the celebratory event, there are plenty of other opportunities to see the black and gold for the first time this year.

Arrivals

Over the years, some players have arrived at camp in interesting ways.

Two years ago, Brett Keisel set the bar for training camp arrivals. While some players arrived in luxury vehicles, Keisel pulled up in a dump truck.

No one has topped Keisel since, but some have tried.
