Ravens Show Off M&T Bank Stadium Renovations Construction

Instead of helmets, the necessary uniform at M&T Bank Stadium this summer is a hard hat.

The construction project for the renovations at the Ravens' stadium is constantly chugging towards debuting some major parts of the three-year, $430 million project for the start of the 2024 season.

The Ravens took reporters on a construction tour this week, showing them the progress of the project and giving a sneak peek into what's to come for fans.

"This is about transforming and, basically, keeping up with the Joneses. Transforming the experience," said Senior Vice President of Stadium Operations and Guest Experience Rich Tamayo, who has been an integral part of the project.

The most noticeable addition for 2024 will be the Gatehouse and rooftop bar, a pregame destination that will be general admission for any fan with a ticket and accessible before gates open. The two-story space will have the look and feel of a beer hall with sweeping views of the Baltimore City skyline.

Team President Sashi Brown said that it was important to the team to unveil some of the general admission spaces at the same time as renovated premium areas.

"We wanted to really put our foot down and say we want to be downtown Baltimore, and we want to have one of the best stadium fan experiences that there is in sports – not just the NFL," Brown said.


While renovated club zones in the north and south parts of the stadium, as well as west end zone clubs and suites, won't be completed until 2025, the Ravens will debut The Blackwing – the most luxurious of all the suites – in 2024.

Brown said the 10 suites, which are all connected to a private club and come with concierge five-star service, are all already sold out. Located just below club seating along the Ravens sideline, The Blackwing will be "one of the most special experiences in sports," Brown said.


The Blackwing took the place of the press box, which will now be located in an upper corner of the stadium.

While reporters will be a little further from the action, fans are getting closer. The 2024 season will also be the first for 136 field-level seats.

Most of the construction projects will be completed in 2025. That includes the dramatic North Plaza renovation that will feature an open-air tailgate and concert venue, as well as upper concourse expansions that will bring more unique food offerings and pre-game amenities.
