Overview

The Army-Navy game makes its return to Philadelphia in 2015. Cadets from West Point and and Midshipmen from Annapolis will square off at Lincoln Financial Field for the 116th matchup between the historic rivals.

Traditionally played on the second Saturday in December, the heated bout often marks the last game of the season for both teams.

Army-Navy Weekend

Army-Navy Weekend brings tens of thousands of Midshipmen and Cadets to Philadelphia for events and activities leading up to the big game. Highlights of the weekend celebration include special events, pep rallies, tailgate celebrations and the Patriot Games, a two-day competition between Army and Navy featuring a variety of mental and physical challenges throughout the city.

History

One of the greatest rivalries in college football has called Philadelphia its home for the majority of its history. This year marks the 86th year the fiercely competitive Army-Navy game has been played in Philadelphia.

As a neutral site conveniently located between the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York and the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, Philadelphia was an easy choice for the Army-Navy game, which the city now enjoys as its unofficial bowl game.
