The NFL’s Baltimore Ravens have struck a deal with Levy to become the team’s official food, beverage and hospitality (F&B) partner.

Beginning in 2024, Levy will be the exclusive concessionaire at M&T Bank Stadium.

With the extension of the lease and major renovations of M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens began reimagining the fan and gameday experience, including the F&B program.

This past fall, the Ravens launched a request for proposal (RFP) process to secure a partner to lead F&B hospitality offerings at M&T Bank Stadium.

Levy – a market-leading hospitality partner – stood out throughout the Ravens’ RFP process. After a comprehensive evaluation of potential F&B partners, the Ravens determined that Levy’s award-winning expertise would play an integral role in the next evolution of the M&T Bank Stadium fan experience.

The 71,008-capacity M&T Bank Stadium is a multipurpose football stadium located in Baltimore, Maryland (US). It is the home of the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). The stadium is immediately adjacent to the 45,971-capacity Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the home of the Major League Baseball (MLB) team Baltimore Orioles.

The Ravens are planning a series of upgrades to M&T Bank Stadium. They will build field-level suites near one of M&T Bank Stadium’s end zones, develop fan-friendly plazas outside their gates and improve the overall retail and F&B experience.

The upgrades are part of the stadium’s new 15-year lease with the Maryland Stadium Authority which will see the Ravens stay in Baltimore until at least 2037.

Ravens president Sashi Brown said, “Levy is absolutely the right partner for the Ravens. They share our passion and commitment to delivering great food and amazing experiences for our fans.

“Food and Beverage and Hospitality has become such a core part of our fans’ gameday experience. Throughout the planning of our stadium renovations, we pushed ourselves to evolve every aspect of the fan experience and were heavily focused on our F&B program.”

Ravens senior vice president of stadium operations and guest experience Rich Tamayo added, “As we enter a new era of experience, innovation and excitement at M&T Bank Stadium, we’re confident Levy will provide fresh opportunities that deliver best-in-class service for all fans.”

Andy Lansing, CEO of Levy, said, “We’re incredibly proud to partner with the Baltimore Ravens to create an elevated game day experience for the Ravens Flock, one of the greatest fanbases in the league. Our focus is on bringing wonderful flavors and hospitality to M&T Bank Stadium in a way that celebrates cherished traditions with new and improved modern amenities. We’re looking forward to getting started.”

The disruptor in defining the sports and entertainment hospitality experience, Levy is recognized as the market leader and most critically acclaimed hospitality company in its industry.

Levy’s diverse portfolio includes award-winning restaurants; iconic sports and entertainment venues, zoos and cultural institutions, theaters and music festivals, and convention centers; as well as the Super Bowl, Grammy Awards, US Open Tennis Tournament, Kentucky Derby, Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals, and NHL, MLB, NBA, NFL, and MLS All-Star Games.
