The team has played its home games at M&T Bank Stadium in...  downtown Baltimore since 1998, and is headquartered at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills.The Ravens were established in 1996, when then-owner of the Cleveland Browns, Art Modell, announced plans to relocate the franchise to Baltimore.

In return, he was allowed to take his players to Baltimore, where his new team would be legally recognized as an expansion team.

The Ravens organization has been led by general manager Ozzie Newsome since 2002, and has had three head coaches: Ted Marchibroda, Brian Billick, and John Harbaugh. With a record-breaking defensive unit in their 2000 season, the team established a reputation for relying on strong defensive play, led by players like middle linebacker Ray Lewis, who, until his retirement, was considered the "face of the franchise." The team is owned by Steve Bisciotti and valued at $1.157 billion, making the Ravens the 19th-most valuable sports franchise in the world   more
