Stadium / Federal Hill station is a Baltimore Light Rail station in Baltimore, Maryland, located adjacent to M&T Bank Stadium. Although built to serve the stadium, it also provides access to the nearby Federal Hill and Pigtown neighborhoods. The station name was changed from Hamburg Street station to Stadium / Federal Hill in 2017.
The station was not part of the initial operating segment, which opened in 1992. At that time, the line ran between the I-395 viaduct and a large group of parking lots. Construction began on a new stadium for the Baltimore Ravens adjacent to the light rail line in 1996, and an infill station was added. The cost of constructing the stop was approximately $6 million - 12 times the average amount of a light rail stop - part because of a pedestrian bridge that had to be constructed to allow access to the stadium. The state contributed $5 million, with the remaining $1 million from the Ravens.
