PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers’ football stadium will keep the name Heinz Field despite the company’s planned merger with Kraft Foods Group.

Pittsburgh-based H.J. Heinz Co. says if the merger announced Wednesday is approved, the new company will be Kraft Heinz Co.

But Heinz senior vice president Michael Mullen confirms that the stadium will remain named Heinz Field.

The Heinz Co. signed a $57 million, 20-year naming rights deal when the stadium opened in 2001. That means the stadium will keep the name for at least six more years.
