Army-Navy Game Comes to FedEx Field

The Army-Navy football game will come to FedEx Field for the first time on Dec. 10, 2011, a source with knowledge of the situation said. That will be the closest to the District the game has ever been played. An announcement is expected later today.

The game has been staged in Baltimore several times, and has also been contested in Annapolis. FedEx Field was one of several sites bidding for upcoming games, including Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia and M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. This December's game is in Philadelphia, the most frequent host in the game's history.

We'll have more on this later.

Did you know... the game has never been played in DC proper? That will be a bonus from the Synder Enormodome coming to the RFK site in 2015.

I'll be there. This is one of the sporting events I've always wanted to attend. As a Redskin ticket holder, I should get first rights to the tickets.
Hopefully, the RFK site will be a dual stadium site.

Agreed. Like Barcelona's Camp Nou and Mini Estadi

Redskin season ticket holders will not get first rights to the game. Army and Navy season ticket holders will get preference.

By "dual stadium site," do you mean a large dome for the Redskins as primary tenants, and an uncovered, smaller stadium for United?

I would say, smaller but partially covered soccer stadium. Who knows - it just might happen. Or it might not.

Loved Junior's concern that the contract mandate the March-On, unlike when The Danny canceled it the last time FedEx hosted the game.
