Established by the General Assembly in 1986, the original mission was to build, manage, and maintain quality facilities to retain major league baseball, and return NFL football to Maryland.
In more than thirty years, MSA has completed projects in partnership with local governments, universities and the private sector throughout Maryland. These include convention centers, museums, theaters, parks and campus centers in addition to sports arenas. They have been completed on time, on budget.
The Maryland Stadium Authority is committed to enhancing the Maryland experience for those who live, work and visit here.
In addition, MSA currently oversees projects such as 21st Century School Buildings Program and Project C.O.R.E., or Creating Opportunities for Renewal and Enterprise, which orchestrates the demolition of blighted structures throughout Baltimore City.
The sports commission for the state of Maryland, known as Maryland Sports, is a division of MSA and has been since its existence in 2008.
- To plan, finance, build and manage sports and entertainment facilities in Maryland.
- Provide enjoyment, enrichment, education, and business opportunities for citizens.
- Develop partnerships with local governments, universities, private enterprise and the community.
The Maryland Stadium Authority is more than the name implies. Its projects promote historic preservation, adaptive reuse, community redevelopment, cultural arts, and civic pride. In planning selected projects, MSA has the latitude to negotiate with other government jurisdictions, and other departments within the State. Its mandate includes creating public-private partnerships for financing and operating facilities.
The Maryland Stadium Authority is a catalyst for improving quality of life and creating a climate where industry can flourish. Every project undertaken by MSA has contributed to the community where it is located, and the local economy it helps support.
The Maryland Stadium Authority represents more than buildings. Its continuing legacy is found in activities and attraction that entertain and educate, enriching the Maryland experience for those who live, work, and visit here. They provide a link with our past and investment in our future. They offer opportunity for our business sector while offering an enjoyable experience for citizens of all ages and interests. They represent civic pride; fostering community and shared experiences.
The Maryland Stadium Authority is a place where commerce and culture meet the public sector’s ability to provide these amenities for its citizens.
