The Baltimore Nighthawks are a football team in the Independent Women's Football League. The Nighthawks played their inaugural game in Brooklandville at Martin D. Tullai Field (adjacent to St. Paul's School). The Nighthawks played the remainder of their home season at Baltimore Lutheran School. The Baltimore Nighthawks have made Art Modell Stadium at Mergenthaler Vocational Technical High School their home field since the 2009 season. For the 2014 season, the team will play their home games at Dunbar High School, located at 1400 Orleans Street, Baltimore, MD 21231. Ticket prices for home games average ten dollars, while season tickets are priced at forty dollars.
The Baltimore Nighthawks support several charitable organizations focused on breast cancer research, healthcare for the homeless, child abuse and hunger. On March 21, 2009, the Nighthawks made women's football history when they hosted the Pink Ribbon Bowl. The goal was to raise awareness about breast cancer and introduce professional women's tackle football to a broader audience. A portion of the proceeds benefited the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation for breast cancer research.
