A proposed soccer match at Heinz Field featuring popular European professional club A.C. Milan has been called off.

Local organizers, including the Steelers, apparently want more time to promote the event and are eying a game in 2013 instead, said a source with knowledge of the negotiations.

A.C. Milan first announced an Aug. 4 "friendly" on its website. The date was subsequently changed to Aug. 3 because of a schedule conflict at the stadium. Newcastle United was billed as the tentative opponent.

The Steelers, however, never signed off on the match for this year, and A.C. Milan is looking for a replacement match. breaking - penguins
