Maryland Stadium Authority Announces Smoking Ban at Camden Yards Complex

For Immediate Release
February 25, 2013
Contact: Michael Frenz, Maryland Stadium Authority
(410) 333-1560

The Maryland Stadium Authority is implementing a ban on smoking at the Camden Yards Sports Complex, which includes both Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. Effective March 4, 2013, the ban will apply to all games and events held within the stadium structures at Camden Yards.

The ban prohibits the "the burning of a lighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, or any other matter or substance that contains tobacco" within the stadiums--whether such spaces are covered or uncovered, walled or exposed, or open or closed to public access. The ban will also prohibit smoking within 25 feet of any entry, outdoor air intake, or operable window of the stadium structures.

Roy Sommerhof, Vice President of Stadium Operations for the Ravens, said the team will make accommodations for those attending football games and other special events held at M&T Bank Stadium who wish to smoke.
The Orioles will announce a similar policy to accommodate smokers prior to Opening Day.
