The stadium's design was nearly circular, attempting to facilitate use by the Pirates and Steelers with equal accommodation. Unfortunately, as was the case with other cities in which this so-called "cookie cutter" approach was employed (Washington, New York, Houston, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Diego, Cincinnati, and Philadelphia), the fundamentally different shapes of the playing fields made the stadium inadequate to the needs of either sport. Even by "cookie cutter" standards, the upper deck at Three Rivers (known to regular stadium-goers as "Peanut Heaven") was exceptionally high, making for steep climbs by event attendees and adding to its cavernous feel. By the 1990s, the use of multiple low-bid contractors in its construction began to show, as parts of the concrete began to turn differing shades of brown.

The stadium did have its moments of glory and drama, mostly in its first decade of existence. The Pirates won the 1971 and 1979 World Series while playing here, upsetting the favored Baltimore Orioles in both series. The 1971 World Series featured the first night game in World Series history (Game 4). Roberto Clemente ended his career while playing here, garnering 3,000 hits before his death in a plane crash while transporting earthquake relief supplies in December 1972. Slugger Willie Stargell established himself as a fan favorite. The Pirates also made the playoffs during 1990-1991-1992, only to be defeated by the Cincinnati Reds and the Atlanta Braves. Since then, the competitive disproportions of the big-contract era in baseball has made it extremely difficult for small market teams like Pittsburgh to be competitive. Three Rivers also hosted the 1974 and 1994 Major League Baseball All-Star Games. Pirate pitcher Ken Brett was the winning pitcher (and only Pirate) in the 1974 game.

The Steelers fielded what was ostensibly the greatest NFL team of all time after the San Francisco 49ers of the 1980s, culminating in four championship trophies in six years during the 1970's with wins in Super Bowl IX, Super Bowl X, Super Bowl XIII and Super Bowl XIV. The Steelers, coached by Chuck Noll, featured quarterback Terry Bradshaw, running back Franco Harris, receiver Lynn Swann, and defender "Mean" Joe Greene, who anchored the "Steel Curtain." The "Immaculate Reception" occurred here, in a 1972 AFC playoff game against the Oakland Raiders. In the 1990's the Steelers, coached by Bill Cowher, again made the Super Bowl (Super Bowl XXX), only to lose to the Dallas Cowboys. One of the biggest upsets in NFL history (as well as one the worst losses in club history) occurred on January 15, 1995, when the San Diego Chargers scored a late-game goal line stand and upset the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game, 17-13, capping a horrible performance by quarterback Neil O'Donnell. A year later, on January 14, 1996, the franchise clinched its fifth conference title with a 20-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game, surviving a last-second Hail Mary pass attempt by the Colts' Jim Harbaugh that just barely fell incomplete. The stadium would go on to host one more conference title game, on January 11, 1998, as the Steelers fell, 24-21, to John Elway and the Denver Broncos.

For the 2000 football season, Three Rivers Stadium was the interim home for the University of Pittsburgh football team. The stadium officially shut down for good following the Steelers' 24-3 win over the Washington Redskins on December 16 of that year. Eight weeks later on February 11, 2001 Three Rivers Stadium was imploded. The Pirates moved into a baseball-specific facility, PNC Park, situated to the east of the old stadium site, along the north bank of the Allegheny River. Later that year, the Steelers, along with the University of Pittsburgh football team, moved into football-specific Heinz Field, built right next to the old stadium site to the west, along the north bank of the Ohio River. 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
