Biography

Roy Sommerhof joined the Ravens during their inaugural season in 1996. He manages all aspects of M&T Bank Stadium, including gameday parking and transportation, security, guest services, custodial services, catering, medical services and stadium maintenance.

Since the stadium’s 1998 opening, he has spearheaded efforts to make it one of the NFL’s best by supervising significant improvements to lower and upper concourses, the suite and club levels, the installation of high definition video boards and the addition of a high-density WiFi network. In the spring of 2013, the Ravens announced a two-year, $35 million upgrade investment to enhance the fan experience at the stadium.

With his leadership, M&T Bank Stadium received a LEED Gold Certification (Nov. 2013), becoming the first North American outdoor stadium of any kind to achieve this distinction.

Prior to joining the Ravens, Sommerhof spent 16 years working in ticket sales and stadium operations for the Orioles. He played a key role in the planning, development and execution of the 1992 opening of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

During his career, he has been involved with numerous special events, including hosting both Pope John Paul II at Oriole Park (1995) and the Queen of England at Memorial Stadium (1991), and the MLB All-Star Game at Oriole Park (1993).

He is also the former chairman of the Gridiron Stadium Network, a consortium of 12 NFL facilities that creates awareness and promotes the assets of its members. The GSN works to optimize opportunities to expand the use of the state-of-the-art facilities for new sports, entertainment, public and private events.

Sommerhof, who was recognized by the Stadium Business Summit as a finalist for 2015 Executive of the Year honor, has a degree in sports administration from St. Thomas. He and his wife, Lina, have two sons, Drew (22) and Cole (14).
