M&T Bank Stadium has been a premiere venue ever since it was opened in 1998. Football games, concerts, and other events have been the primary use of the site, and the location provides a great experience.

It was announced that the football programs of the Naval Academy and the University of Notre Dame will be matching up at M&T Bank Stadium on November 12th, 2022. The Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk said in a news release that M&T Bank Stadium is one of the “finest facilities in all of sports”.

“Every time we come to Baltimore the Navy football family has an extraordinary experience in one of the finest facilities in all of sports.”

Gladchuk also went into detail on the growing relationship between the Baltimore Ravens and the Naval Academy.

“Our dealings with the Ravens have grown over the years to the point of a much appreciated and constructive professional relationship. The Baltimore Ravens are a great organization that do everything in a first-class manner and our coaches, players, alumni, and fans know it. We are very much looking forward to our trip to Baltimore in 2022.”

Ravens president Dick Cass said that it’s “special” to have Navy return to M&T Bank Stadium.

“It’s special for the Ravens and Baltimore to have Navy returning to M&T Bank Stadium for a game. Having Navy play here creates a special event that the whole area embraces. Because of the historical prominence and popularity of Navy and Notre Dame, this game will also produce regional and national attention, including visitors from around the country. This long-term rivalry is filled with memorable players, coaches, games and plays, and there will be more in 2022 when they meet in Baltimore. We’re very excited to host this event.”

The 2022 bout between Navy and Notre Dame will mark the first matchup between the two hosted by M&T Bank Stadium since 2008. In that game, Notre Dame came out on top in a 27-21 thriller. This will be the 23rd time that the Irish and the Midshipmen will meet in Baltimore to play football.
