We wanted to join in with sharing our story, our nest, and our group so other Displaced Ravens Fans can find us and help us support the cause.
When moving to Charlotte, my wife & I found pockets of Ravens fans, you could find the occasional license plates paying homage to Ray Lewis, Super Bowl XXXV, or some creative 8 character misspelling of RVNSFAN!
Luckily we weren’t alone.
A small Facebook group existed for the Baltimore Ravens Fans of Charlotte, and a small meet-up group. After running into a few friends from Baltimore who now lived blocks away in Charlotte, we were starting to scout a bar for the season and recruit a few others!
Our first season concluded too early last year, at our first annual sponsor bar, Black Finn Bar & Grill in Epicenter Charlotte Uptown. Big thanks to Black Finn for taking us on in our first organized year! The nest started the season with a little over 10-15 people per game, Averages about 30 Ravens fans per game, and at times has exceeded 50 Ravens fans per game! Not bad for our first organized season!
Our background logo adorns the flat screens, Audio & Video are ours, and we hang the Ravens banner high and proud. We’re known to break out into the Seven Nation Army chant when we score, and appreciate the confused looks from the at times more timid Panthers fans who surround us.
If you’re looking to join us this year, we will be at SIP Bar & Cellar, located at 201 E Trade St, Charlotte, NC 28202. Natty Boh is always present! A number of events are scheduled including O’s opening day, Summer Crab Feast, NFL Draft Party, and of course each and every Ravens game.
