Steelers fans cheer during a pep rally ahead of the AFC Championship game against the Patriots at Stage AE on the North Shore on Friday, Jan. 20, 2017.

A pep rally will precede the Steelers playoff game next weekend, the team announced.

The rally will be held Jan. 13 at Stage AE on the North Shore. The AFC Divisional game will kick off Jan. 14.

Admission is free for the 6 p.m. event. The Steeline Drumline will perform during the rally , which will be attended by former players and celebrity guests, the team said in a statement.

Special giveaways featuring six Steelers players will be available for the first 1,000 fans through the doors.

The team has a first-round bye. Its opponent for the Jan. 14 game at Heinz Field won't be known until the conclusion of Sunday's Wild Card game between No. 3 seed Jacksonville and No. 6 Buffalo. A Jacksonville win would pit the Jaguars against the Steelers in the AFC Divisional game, while a Buffalo win would bring the winner of the game between No. 4 Kansas City and No. 5 Tennessee to Heinz Field.
