Game day guide of the 2023 Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens 2023 season is nearly here, and fans are beginning to plan their trips to M&T Bank Stadium. Ticket agents are on the phone signing up fans for season tickets, and single-game tickets are flying off the shelves as fans prepare for a potentially great Ravens season.

For fans, the Ravens and bettors in the mid-Atlantic area, this is a year full of hope.

This guide will help prepare you when you attend a Ravens home game this season. We have everything you need to enjoy a Ravens game day.

Step 1: Getting tickets to a Ravens game

There are two options for fans wanting to attend a Ravens game. Season tickets can be purchased, or fans can buy single-game tickets.

Prices for season tickets range from $739 to $4,586. The Ravens offer a 10-month payment plan for fans who do not want to pay in one installment.

Single-game tickets start at $53 and climb to $619 depending on which opponent is in town and where the seats are.

Season tickets

Club-level season tickets

For fans who want the best of the best for every Ravens home game, club-level season tickets are the way to go. Not only are the seats good, the perks are even better.

  • Climate-controlled concourses
  • Best food and drink options
  • Luxury and oversized seats
  • Exclusive access to eight bars with flat-screen TVs and lounge areas
  • Private escalators
  • Preferred parking for purchases of four-or-more season tickets
  • 15% off at the official team store
  • A concierge service paired with a private phone and email service to address any needs

Club-level season tickets begin at $2,266 for the end zone and climb from there. Corner sections are $2,838, and seats on the sideline are $3,663. The best section throughout club level is midfield, where seats are $4,586.

Upper-level season tickets

Upper-level season tickets do not have access to the amenities of club level, but they have perks of their own.

They have access to a rewards program to win on-field experiences, pre-game passes and access to exclusive events. There is also a discount at the team store and reduced pricing on a large percentage of concessions. Lastly, season ticket-holders are guaranteed access to tickets for playoff games.

The cheapest option is the upper-level corners, which are $739. For a bit more, fans can get end zone seats for $787 or sideline seats from $870 to $1,023. The best option is the upper-level midfield seats, which are $1,131.

Lower-level season tickets

Lower-level season tickets come with the same perks as the upper level but gain the benefit of being closer to the action.

The cheapest of the options are $1,237 for end zone seats. There is a sideline option for $1,590, but the best lower-level options are midfield seats at $1,989.

Single-game tickets

Prices for single-game tickets are all over the place, but there are a few certainties.

The most expensive game will be against the Bengals on Nov. 16 for Thursday Night Football. Tickets start at $104 and rise to $643 for club-level midfield seats.

The cheapest regular season game of the year is against the Chargers. Tickets begin at $53 and do not exceed $344 for midfield club-level options.

Tickets are available through Seat Geek.

Step 2: Getting to M&T Bank Stadium

There are many options for fans traveling to the stadium.

Driving and parking can be confusing for Ravens games. There are public transportation and rideshare options available.

Parking at M&T Bank Stadium

Figuring out which parking option is best when attending Ravens games can be tough, so the stadium partnered with SpotHero to simplify things.

Parking can cost anywhere from around $10 to $100 in an official Ravens parking lot. Many of the official lots are restricted to season ticket-holders, but passes can be purchased in advance when available. The cheapest options are downtown parking garages that are a longer walk to the stadium.

There are tailgating-focused lots which are a couple blocks from the stadium. There are, however, several rules when tailgating in an official Ravens parking lot.

  • Tailgating is allowed but must end 30 minutes after the start of the game
  • Cooking is not permitted within two feet of vehicles
  • For charcoal cooking, only self-starting briquettes; no lighter fluid is permitted
  • For propane cooking, there is a 20-pound tank limit, and the canister must be mounted to the grill
  • All fires must be contained and always supervised
  • Lots open four and a half hours before kickoff

Park and ride options are available on the Ravens website from five different locations:

  • White Marsh Park and Ride
  • Carney Park and Ride
  • Southwest Park and Ride
  • Westminster Target
  • Hyatt Place at Owings Mills

Single-game Park and Ride prices are between $30-$35, while season prices are between $270-$300.

Rideshare options

There are three different locations to be dropped off when using rideshare apps to get to the stadium:

  • Warner Street (south side)
  • Hanover Street (east side)
  • Pratt Street (north side)

Getting picked up after the game is a bit different. Instead of a dedicated pickup area, the Ravens website provide fans with suggested areas to catch their ride.

Heading north of the stadium

  1. Cross Hamburg Street and walk along Ravens Walk to make your way toward Lee Street.
  2. Cross Lee and walk past Oriole Park toward W. Camden Street. Head up one block to W. Pratt Street for better options when traveling north or east.
  3. Continue one more block to Lombard Street for pickup when traveling west.

South of stadium

  1. Walk toward Lot D parking to W. Ostend Street.
  2. Cross over W. Ostend and proceed on Warner Street toward the Horseshoe Casino rideshare pickup area.

East of stadium (into Federal Hill)

  1. Walk toward Lot D parking to W. Ostend Street.
  2. Take a left and walk along the sidewalk of W. Ostend over the bridge toward Federal Hill.
  3. Continue to follow W. Ostend to S. Charles Street.
  4. You may also continue going further east two blocks to Light Street

Public transportation

Between buses, light-rail stations and trains, there is no shortage of public transportation options.

The University Center/Baltimore Street stop on the light rail is a 9-minute walk to the stadium. Camden Station is where the train stops, and it is a 17-minute walk. There are also three bus stations within a 10-minute walk:

  • Charles Street and Cross Street (3-minute walk)
  • West Street (5-minute walk)
  • Russell Street and Hamburg Street (7-minute walk)

Step 3: M&T Bank Stadium’s food and drink options

The stadium has 55 total concession stands. Forty-four of them are split between the lower and upper levels, while 11 of the best concessions are on club level.

Five have gluten-free options and five feature vegetarian choices.

There is no shortage of alcohol options. No more than two alcoholic drinks can be purchased at one time. Alcohol sales end at the end of the third quarter.

Step 4: How to enjoy a Ravens game to the fullest

Virginia sports betting enthusiasts can place bets before going to the stadium, of course. In addition, online sports betting is also legal in Maryland. If you want to bet on the Baltimore Ravens, you have plenty of options.

Knowing the stadium’s requirements is paramount to enjoying a Ravens game.

The stadium gates open two hours before kickoff. Bags any bigger than 12 x 6 x 12 are not allowed. One-gallon Ziploc bags are a suggested alternative. Outside drinks are not allowed, but food can be brought in if in a clear plastic bag.

Still photography is allowed, but taking videos is prohibited. Tripods, selfie sticks, camera bags and other equipment are not allowed.

Banners are permitted, but they must not be commercial, political, offensive, in poor taste, obstruct the view of other fans or be on a pole.

Here are some other banned items to be aware of:

  • Air horns, cowbells or noisemakers
  • Backpacks
  • Plastic or glass bottles
  • Battery-heated clothing
  • Electronic cigarettes
  • Footballs or balls of any kind
  • Umbrellas

The rest is common sense. For a complete list, check the Ravens Fan Guide.
