Army Navy Football Game - 2014

Winners will be the guests of three retired admirals RDAM James P. Davidson and other Navy digntiararies. Pre-game festivities and VIP seating are included.

For football fans, being part of the Army-Navy classic is one of the holy grails for the sport; it's a one of a kind rivalry and spectacular event. Getting tickets to the game is very difficult. The 2014 game is particularly special because the game will be played in Baltimore as part of the 200th anniversary celebration of Francis Scott Keys writing of The Star Spangled Banner.

History
The city of Philadelphia has been synonymous with the Army-Navy football classic over the years, hosting 81 of the previous 109 service-academy battles.

Army and Navy will build on that rich tradition in the years ahead with Tuesday's announcement that Philadelphia and Lincoln Financial Field will serve as the host of "America's Game" five times during an eight-year span-2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017.

In making the announcement, U.S. Military Academy Director of Athletics Kevin Anderson and U.S. Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk also announced that for the first time in series history the game will be played on the doorstep of the nation's capital.

The 2011 Army-Navy game is slated to be played at FedEx Field, located just outside Washington, D.C. The game will carry added significance as it will mark the 10-year anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Additionally, the 2014 and 2016 Army-Navy classics will be played at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. The 2014 Army-Navy game will coincide with the city's celebration of the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key's writing of "The Star Spangled Banner" while stationed at Fort McHenry in Baltimore.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the representatives from the cities of Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., who assisted in this process," Anderson said. "Their extraordinary efforts made the selection process extremely difficult and presented our committee several outstanding options. The Army-Navy game is 'America's Game' and remains one of the most treasured spectacles in all of college football.

"That was very evident by the interest displayed in hosting the game," he added. "We are excited about bringing the game back to Philadelphia and Baltimore, and for the first time, holding the game in our nation's capital."

The process for securing a long-term home for future Army-Navy football games officially began last August with the service academies distributing a formal "Request for Proposal."

The academies accepted bids from prospective host cities through the middle of November with site visits conducted during the months of February, March and April.

The first Army-Navy game was played in 1890 at West Point and the second in Annapolis one year later. In 1899, Philadelphia's Franklin Field became the game site.

The "City of Brotherly Love" has dominated as host city for the Army-Navy game since that time. Fourteen different stadiums have hosted the event, four of those located in Philadelphia and two in Baltimore.

For the 14th straight year, CBS Sports will televise the Army-Navy classic to a national and worldwide (via American Forces Network) audience at 2:30PM on Dec. 12.

A special 30-minute pregame show will be televised on CBS leading up to the game broadcast.
