Ravens completes fan experience renovation project

NFL American football franchise the Baltimore Ravens has completed work on the final phase of a $120m (£96.4m/€107.6m) renovation of its M&T Bank Stadium.

The self-funded investment project was focused on enhancing the fan experience at the 71,000-capacity stadium.

The improvements include 4K ultra-high definition video displays, escalators and elevators to the upper deck, a new sound system, upgraded kitchen facilities, a redesigned club level and updated suites.

Ravens president Dick Cass said: “One of our primary goals is to create extraordinary experiences for fans every time they visit M&T Bank Stadium. We’re proud of the work that’s been done to ensure that we consistently produce one the NFL’s best gameday atmospheres.”

The Ravens were given the green light for the $120m renovation project back in January 2017. The work introduced two 200-feet-by-36-feet video displays behind each end zone, 28,000 square feet of video ribbon displays, four video boards in each corner of M&T Bank Stadium, a field-level party suite and enhanced WiFi.

Ravens senior vice president of stadium operations Roy Sommerhof added: “The improvements we’ve made over the last several years keep our stadium on the cutting edge of technology, convenience, entertainment and design. We will always strive to provide fans a top-notch experience at Ravens home games.”

The enhancements are scheduled to be showcased during a free training camp practice at M&T Bank Stadium on July 27, which will include a fireworks display and a laser/lights show following the training session.
