    PNC Bank owns the naming rights to the stadium. The company was formed as a merger between Pittsburgh National Corporation and Provident National Corporation. Officially, the initials don't stand for anything anymore.

    PNC Bank is a large bank based in Pittsburgh. As for the PNC, I rely on Wikipedia:

    "PNC Financial Services traces its history to the Pittsburgh Trust and Savings Company which was founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1852. In 1858 the company located its corporate offices at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Wood Street in Pittsburgh where they remain to this day. By 1959, after a series of mergers, the Pittsburgh Trust and Savings Company had evolved into the Pittsburgh National Corporation. Another branch of the current bank, the Philadelphia based Provident National Corporation, dates to the mid-19th century. In 1982, Pittsburgh National Corporation and Provident National Corporation merged under the the new entity named PNC Financial Corporation. Between 1991 and 1996 PNC purchased over ten smaller banks and financial institutions that broadened its market base from Kentucky to the Greater New York Metro area. In 2005 PNC acquired Washington, D.C. based Riggs National Corporation. In 2006, PNC announced that it would be acquiring Maryland-based Mercantile Bankshares in 2007. On June 7, 2007, PNC announced the pending acquisition of Yardville National Bancorp, a small commercial bank centered in central New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. These latest merger make PNC the 11th largest bank by deposits in the United States."
