BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens announced a series of projects that will enhance the gameday experience for fans at M&T Bank Stadium.

The planned renovation includes a tailgate and concert venue, field-level seating and infrastructure investments.

Construction on the 25-year-old stadium is expected to be completed in stages from 2024 to 2026. The project will cost an estimated $450 million.


Last January, the Ravens announced a 15-year lease extension, making M&T Bank stadium the home of the Ravens until at least 2037. 

Ravens president Sashi Brown told WJZ it was important to improve the gameday experience for the fans.

Over the next three years, Ravens fans will see the Bank transform as every level of the stadium undergoes a facelift.

"We are excited to unveil the next evolution of M&T Bank Stadium," Brown said.

Beginning in 2024, construction will start on the first of many transformation projects.

"Every fan that will come to the stadium will be impacted by these renovations," Brown said.

The upgrade plan will improve spaces outside of the stadium and every level of the stadium's interior. 

Outside of the stadium, there will be a new-look North Plaza with new tailgate areas, a concert venue and a new team store which will be open year-round. 


"The Gate House" on the east side of the stadium will be a social space for fans to enjoy before, during and after every home game. 

Inside the stadium, there will be a concourse expansion in the upper level of the stadium, as well as three new field-level clubs and west end zone suites.

The South Club will feature a view of the Ravens player tunnel at the 50-yard line, allowing fans to watch players take the field for pregame warmups. 

Suites in the West Zone will offer two rows of on-field seating. 

"The Black Wing" will offer the most luxurious accommodations. It will feature 10 individual suites, which will all be connected by a private club. 

"Our team at Gensler, and our design team internally, have done a fantastic job keeping every fan's experience in mind," Brown said.

"It's an exciting time for the stadium of authority, for the state of Maryland, for Baltimore City, for the Ravens," Brown said. "We couldn't be more excited to be here today and unveil the projects. Looking forward to construction coming at the end of the season."


In addition to improving fan experience on gameday, Brown said that the projects will also attract world-class concerts and live events to Maryland.
