Jumbo screens, unobstructed sight lines and high-end amenities highlight the home of the Ravens. – Overview
Since its completion in 1998, this state-of-the-art facility has played a key role in reclaiming Baltimore's status as one of America's great football cities. This is no small feat, given the pounding the city's football psyche took with the 1984 departure of the vaunted Colts. Ravens' fans rave about the new 70,000-seat stadium, praising everything from the twin jumbo screens (one in each endzone) to the unobstructed sight lines offered from almost every seat in the house.
Luxury certainly doesn't come without a cost, as ticket and concession prices tend to be steep. Even with high cost single-game tickets, however, almost every game is a sellout, and fans must scramble for the 6,000 seats made available to non-season-ticket holders for each game. Food vendors will also put a dent in your pocketbook, but unique local offerings like Maryland crab cakes and crab soup make the high prices easier to swallow.
