CFG Bank Arena is committed to Baltimore and the surrounding communities.  We plan on working with community organizations and elected officials in an effort to fill 37 percent of construction subcontracts to local and minority-owned companies.

CFG Bank Arena is part of a $250+ million renovation that serves as the cornerstone for West Side Redevelopment.  The project created 500+ new construction jobs for the community. 

Additionally, CFG Bank Arena continues ongoing efforts to uphold its legacy in advocating and supporting local, nonprofit organizations through philanthropic efforts.  Supporting the citizens within our community, advocating animal rights and investing in local arts and music programs.
