Oriole Park at Camden Yards was built at a cost of $210 million by the State of Maryland and the City of Baltimore. It was paid for by the state lottery (approximately $50 million) and tax-exempt bonds (approximately $155 million). The team invested $9 million. Pct. public: 96

When the Orioles were sold at auction in 1993, the ballpark lease was cited as the largest single asset in the deal. Peter Angelos, eventual buyer of the O's, leases the facility from the State of Maryland and the City of Baltimore. The team does not sell signs individually, but its promotion packages start at $100,000.
Party suites lease for $2,800 to $4,800 per game depending upon the opponent and the demand. The suites seat 75 persons.
In 2001, the Maryland Stadium Authority won the right to earn money from events held at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but lost a bid to delay paying $10 million into a ballpark improvement fund. The ruling by an arbitrator was to clarify an earlier arbitration decision.
The original dispute was raised by the Orioles who sought parity with the Ravens in their lease agreement with the Stadium Authority. The division of money from non-baseball events was one of the issues. The Stadium Authority gets revenues from events held within the ballpark's interior while the Ravens and Authority split funds from events like concerts that are held in the bowl. The Authority wanted to extend that deal to the Orioles, but the ball team wanted to divide revenue for all events held at the stadium. Arbitrators sided with the Authority.
