90s Ravens: where it all started
A fairly young team in the football league, the Baltimore Ravens were considered one of the favourite picks for the new expansion teams in the 90s. Beginning their league in 1996, the Ravens played their first two years at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium, previously home to other football clubs. An initial promise of a new world-class stadium was very exciting and once opened, it helped build the profile of the modern team. The new stadium, also known as Ravens Stadium, was officially opened in 1998 – two years after the Ravens’ debut. It was praised for its fan amenities, accessibility and other facilities and has been the home ground for the Ravens ever since. The Ravens have come a long way since their first game in 1996, so to watch a compelling battle against one of their biggest rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, buy or sell Baltimore Ravens tickets on StubHub today.
The years of success
The Baltimore Ravens have had undoubtedly great success in their short time in America’s football league. They landed themselves two first round draft picks in their first year, selecting an incredible lineman and a now hall of fame player. This helped them win their opening game against the Oakland Raiders, however, they ended the season with only a few wins. With a slow start to success and after losing three seasons in a row, Brian Billick took over as head coach. Billick had previous success in his role as assistant coach for the Minnesota Vikings, which brought a sense of faith to the team. The Ravens went on to play the New York Giants in the championship final only a year after Billick was appointed, leading them to a momentous victory – the first for the franchise. Since their victory in 2000, the Ravens’ have qualified for more than ten playoffs and won another championship final.
