M&T Bank Stadium tickets
M&T Bank Stadium is a multi-purpose football stadium located in Baltimore, Maryland. It is the home of the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League. The stadium is immediately adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles. Served by the Hamburg Street station of the Baltimore Light Rail, the stadium originally featured a natural grass surface. However, an artificial surface, Sportexe Momentum Turf, was installed for the 2003 season. While its primary tenant is the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League, the stadium also serves as an alternate venue for the Johns Hopkins University's men's lacrosse team, and was the site of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship in 2003, 2004 and 2007 and will host the 2010 Championship. Major League Lacrosse's Baltimore Bayhawks used the stadium as their home during the 2002 season.
About M&T Bank Stadium
The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) holds the four state football championships for Maryland's public high schools at M&T Bank Stadium.
Two very important Baltimore high school rivalry games are also held at the stadium every November. Baltimore City College plays Baltimore Polytechnic Institute every November, in one of the oldest high school football rivalries in the United States. Every Thanksgiving, Loyola Blakefield and Calvert Hall College also square off in what has now been called for many years as the Turkey Bowl. Fans for both games reach up to 13,000 people.
Both games were once played back-to-back on Thanksgiving Day at Memorial Stadium. However, when City College and Polytechnic joined the MPSSAA before 1994 season, the game was forced to be played in early November, due to MPSSAA rules and playoff schedule.
Popular music festival HFStival appeared at the stadium in 1999 & 2005, as Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Offspring, Blink-182, Goo Goo Dolls, Billy Idol, and Coldplay have all played the concert.
In 2005, the stadium was the site of the first rematch in the Maryland-Navy series known as the "Crab Bowl Classic" in 40 years. The two teams have agreed to play again at M&T Bank Stadium in 2010.
On October 28, 2006, the stadium held a contest between Notre Dame and Navy in which Notre Dame won 38-14 and in 2007 the stadium held the Army–Navy Game for the second time.
On December 7, 2008, an M&T Bank Stadium record crowd of 71,438 watched the Baltimore Ravens defeat the Washington Redskins 24-10 on Sunday Night Football, only to be surpassed the next week against the eventual Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers when the Steelers defeated the Ravens 13-9 in front of 71,502.
On March 24, 2009 it was announced in the Baltimore Sun that the English Premier League club FC Chelsea will play the Italian Calcio Serie A team of AC Milan in a friendly at M&T Bank Stadium on July 24, 2009.

The stadium said it was willing to hold a future World Cup match in 2018 or 2022.
