It’s a tradition unlike any other, Army vs. Navy at Lincoln Financial Field.
This year, however, because of the pandemic, the game will be played at West Point for the first time since 1943:

It’s a bummer, but it’s not surprising. We knew this was going to happen when the pandemic became a serious thing and we started to look ahead to football season.
For context, the series has been played in Philadelphia more than 60 times dating back to 1950, with occasional one-off games in Baltimore, Landover, East Rutherford, and even Pasadena back in 1983. This will be the 4th time in history that the series is played on Army’s home turf, with the other three taking place in 1890, 1892, and 1943.
