The NFL’s Baltimore Ravens have completed a three-year renovation project at M&T Bank Stadium, which includes new premium seating and technology throughout the venue.
The self-funded improvements to the stadium are designed to improve fan experience and gameday atmosphere, and follow over US$220m of total investment at M&T Bank Stadium since the venue was first built in 1998.
The latest 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.
“The improvements we’ve made over the last several years keep our stadium on the cutting edge of technology, convenience, entertainment and design,” added Ravens senior vice president of stadium operations Roy Sommerhof.
Prior to the latest upgrades, the stadium has been busy investing in technology to improve the venue.
It was furnished with new LED sports lights in early 2019 to provide more energy efficiency and the capability to instantly switch on and off. In all, Musco Sports Lighting installed 416 new light fixtures atop the stadium that produce a brighter light with less glare and the ability to create dynamic light shows.
Prior to the 2015 season, the Ravens invested US$5 million in a project to install Wi-Fi access for fans at M&T Bank Stadium. From 2015-17, the throughput capability was 2Gpbs. In 2018, the stadium boasted an upgraded throughput capability of 10Gpbs, or an increase in capability that is five times greater than the previous three seasons.
