M&T Bank Stadium Guide: All You Need to Know When Attending a Ravens Home Game

M&T Bank Stadium was built in 1998 for around $220 million and has a capacity of 71,008.

In 2019 a renovation that took around three years was completed. The renovations included new video boards, access to the upper seating areas, upgraded concessions, a renovated club level, and more. 

The Ravens are off to a 2-1 start this season, and they have seven home games remaining in the regular season. Here’s a guide to what you need to know before going to support the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

Parking

For parking at M&T Bank Stadium you will need to have purchased a parking pass in advance of arriving. There will be paying available for any of the lots on game days. There are 15 parking lots all varying in distance from the stadium. 

They do offer park and ride options with Ravens Ride at five locations around Baltimore: White Marsh Park and Ride, Carney Park and Ride, Southwest Park and Ride, Westminster Target, and Hyatt Place Owings.

The cost varies from $30-35 at those locations, but it’s a good option. There are also bus routes that travel to the stadium or limited downtown parking.

RavensWalk

Something unique to Baltimore Ravens games is the RavensWalk which is a fun pre-game experience for fans to enjoy. 

The experience is over six blocks of interactive experiences with giveaways and vendors. There’s also live music with some acts already announced for upcoming games. 

Spread across the walk are various food and drink options available for purchase including alcoholic beverages. 

What’s Allowed in the Stadium

NFL stadiums have fairly strict rules when it comes to what’s allowed in each stadium, and the Ravens stadium is no different. 

Like most stadiums, they operate under a clear bag policy and the bag can be no larger than 12” x 6” x 12”. Small clutch bags are allowed but they can’t be larger than a hand.

Fans are allowed to bring in blankets and seat cushions that don’t have backs. Food is also allowed to be brought in inside of a clear bag but no drinks will be allowed. To find a more extensive list of what’s allowed in the stadium fans can find more information at the Baltimore Ravens website. 

M&T Bank Stadium has various charging stations for cell phones and devices around the stadium. 

Food and Beverage

Fans will have plenty of options for food and drink when attending Baltimore Ravens home games. 

There are 44 concession stands available around the stadium, not including another 11 on the Club level. The stadium offers standard game-day foods like hot dogs and hamburgers but also a wide variety of other options including the famous Baltimore crab cakes. 

M&T Bank Stadium also has various bar options like the Miller Lite Beer Garden, Dogfish Head Bar, and Devils Backbone Bar. 

It is important to note that the stadium is a cashless venue at all of the concession stands and bars.
