Ravens trying to woo fans with lower concession prices

The Baltimore Ravens are continuing to try to win back fans, announcing Tuesday they will reduce concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium in 2018, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports.

This is the latest example of the Ravens looking to repair the relationship with fans who have become angered by some players' national anthem protests and disappointed by a three-year playoff drought.

Over the past few months, the Ravens invited fans to ask questions at a media pre-draft news conference; held a question-and-answer session with fans at the team facility with owner Steve Bisciotti, coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome; and had team president Dick Cass meet and talk to fan clubs.

The Ravens have sold out every game during their 20-year history at M&T Bank Stadium, but there were an increasing number of empty seats throughout last season. The no-shows were in the thousands for the 14th-largest stadium in the league.

At the NFL owners meetings in March, Cass said there has been "a disconnect" with fans.

"We have to do a better job of engaging with our fans," Cass said.

Bisciotti said in February he thought about doing this but pointed out that the team would need to renegotiate the contract with its vendor.

"It's something I would really like to take a hard look at, and at least, come up with select items that we can do," Bisciotti said then. "If it means us ... I can't make Aramark do that with me, but I can make them go along as long as it's my share of the profits that I'm waiving. Yeah, I'd like to take a look at that. I think we could probably do that."
