In an effort to keep M&T Bank Stadium modernized and up to date with the rest of the National Football League, the Baltimore Ravens will be implementing a $144 million renovation project over the next three seasons. The upcoming upgrades will include two new jumbotrons in each end zone that measure 200 X 36 feet. The new jumbotrons will be twice the size of the current jumbotrons.


Other upcoming upgrades include improvements to the concession stands, video ribbon displays on the suite level of the stadium that total nearly 30,000 square feet as well as eleven 4K cameras for replays and live action shots. Future renovations will take place in two additional phases and will be highlighted by

  • Brand new escalators to the upper level of M&T Bank Stadium. Fans currently have to walk ramps to reach the upper level of the stadium while club level ticket holders have access to escalators.
  • A new sound system.
  • Improvements to the club level’s concessions, bars and lounges.
  • New suites on the club level.
  • New video boards at each corner of the stadium.
  • Improvements to the stadium’s kitchen facilities, mechanical systems and flooring.

The Ravens lease with the stadium expires in 2028 but the renovations suggest that the team plans to stay at M&T Bank Stadium for many years to come. The Baltimore Ravens organization will privately contribute $120 million for the renovations after the state of Maryland shelled out public money for the stadium when it was first constructed in 1998. The stadium authority will contribute the additional $24 million for the improvements to the stadium’s mechanical systems and flooring.

Previous renovations to M&T Bank Stadium included transitioning the field from artificial turf to real grass, improving the WI-FI for fans, upgraded concourses and concession stands and advanced LED video displays. Baltimore Ravens fans should be thankful that the organization isn’t seeking taxpayer money to build a new stadium that the team doesn’t need. Collectively, M&T Bank Stadium and the adjacent Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles, are two of the finest stadiums in professional sports.
