Army-Navy will commemorate the 79th meeting of the two soccer teams when they converge at PPL Park in Chester, home to the Philadelphia Union, on Sunday, September 30 at 2 p.m.
This storied tradition in college sports, the rivalry between Army and Navy, will play out as a tremendous showcase for college soccer right here in the Philadelphia area.
In 2011, Army posted a 7-10-1 overall record and finished sixth in the Patriot League with a 2-4-1 mark.
Navy owns a 38-27-13 series advantage against Army. The Midshipmen have won three games in a row in the series, all coming by 1-0 scores. Last year’s Navy squad went 7-7-5 overall on the season.
The next two Army-Navy match-ups, this year’s and next year’s, will be played at PPL Park.
The beautiful setting of PPL Park will make for a feverish face-off, a world-class sports event that will serve as a great precursor for the Army-Navy football game later in the year.
On Saturday, December 8, 2012, the Army and Navy football teams will once again take to the field at Lincoln Financial Field. Tickets (except for VIP Premium Packages) are not yet on sale, but we’ll definitely let you know when they are.
It will be the 85th time the game has been played in Philadelphia (it arrives every two years), and the 113th edition of the game.
Tickets for the Army-Navy soccer game are on sale now, at $18 for general admission (includes parking) and $28 for reserved seats (sections 126-128). Tickets can be purchased online at ComcastTIX.com, by phone at 1-800-298-4200, or in person at the PPL park box office.
