The fiercely competitive Army-Navy game makes its return to Philadelphia this weekend. The Army Black Knights from West Point and and Navy Midshipmen from Annapolis will square off at Lincoln Financial Field for the 116th matchup between the historic rivals.
The highly anticipated game returns this Saturday, December 12 with a kick-off time of 3 p.m. Gates open at 11 a.m. The football game has taken place in Philadelphia for the past 86 years due to the city’s neutral ground — and central location between the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York and the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
Tickets are available online and cost $65 for adults and $35 for children.
There are plenty of opportunities to support the Army-Navy matchup even beyond the game on Saturday. The city welcomes the tens of thousands of fans and athletes with a variety of events throughout the weekend including a pep rally at the Shops at Liberty Place, a boxing match between the two teams, strength competitions and more.
Plus, ESPN College GameDay will return to Philadelphia to wrap up its season of pre-game coverage from the Army-Navy Game.
Head to Lincoln Financial Field to cheer on the two teams!
