In November, 1995, more than a dozen years after the Colts' departure, Art Modell announced that he would relocate his NFL team to Baltimore at the end of the season. With this announcement, the design and construction process for NFL Stadium at Camden Yards began under the guidance of the Maryland Stadium Authority.
M&T Bank Stadium was completed in 1998 at an estimated cost of $220 million, the stadium has 128 suites and 8,196 club seats. HOK architects, now Populous, designed both Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. The latter was completed in less than 2 years and funded through a combination of proceeds generated from the sale of tax-exempt revenue bonds, debt service paid by lottery proceeds and with support of the Ravens.
Spectators enjoy the latest in technology, including stunning high definition RavensVision video screens, a new high-density WiFi network and state-of-the-art concourse designs. With a capacity of 71,008, this impressive structure draws its design from the best of Baltimore's architecture.
In November of 2013, the Baltimore Ravens, in partnership with the Maryland Stadium Authority, earned a LEED-certified "Gold" designation for M&T Bank Stadium from the U.S. Green Building Council. M&T Bank Stadium is the first existing outdoor professional sports facility in the United States – including all NFL and Major League Baseball stadiums – to receive USGBC's Gold rating. A LEED certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building.
