History of PNC Park
Ground was broken on the stadium on April 7, 1999. PNC Park was completed almost exactly two years later on March 31, 2001. Back in 1991 the mayor of Pittsburgh proposed a new stadium to be built for the Pirates. Discussion and rumors of a new stadium were never really taken serious until Kevin McClatchy bought the team in 1996. Roughly 4 months later they had 13 different locations they could possibly build the new stadium. The location selected was upriver from the current home of the Pirates.
Public money was used to build the new stadium. A sales tax increas was originally proposed to fund three different projects. After the stadium was completed the team made a deal with the city that they would remain in Pittsburgh until 2031.
Many fans wanted the stadium to be named after Roberto Clemente, a fan favorite of the Pirates. In the end, a locally-based financial services company, PNC purchased naming rights until 2020, paying $2 million each year.
