The Ravens’ 2014 preseason opener Thursday against San Francisco will be the first time fans can see the results of a two-year, $35 million dollar renovation to M&T Bank Stadium that centered on concourse features and audio-visual upgrades, the team announced Tuesday.
“We are pleased with the results of our stadium upgrades,” Ravens vice president of stadium operations Roy Sommerhof said in a statement. “The initial improvements we made last year were well-received by our fans, and those who sit in the upper level will really take notice to the recent changes in our stadium.”
New improvements for the 2014 seasons include a pair of specialty bars on the west side of the building, and four portable merchandise stands on the upper level.
The stadium also announced improved mobile reception due to the addition of Sprint and AT&T to its stadium-wide network.
The team also added four 6-foot by 22-foot LED screens to the upper level concourses, streamlined concession services across the stadium, and renovated the upper-level concession stands.
In the first portion of the renovation, which was unveiled last season, the team added a pair of high definition video boards at two gates, and remodeled lower-level concessions.
New artwork on the club level will depict each of the Ravens’ Super Bowl-winning seasons.
