    Brigade sits Blue side lower. I see lots of parents in the upper tier above the Brigade when I'm at the games. Great for view of Navy endzone, Bill the Goat, cheerleaderds, D&B, etc.

    Go to navysports.com, think there must be a diagram of stadium there. You want upper tier Blue side.

    I'm not looking at the seating chart, but as CAPT MJ said, the Brigade sits on the Blue side. They are in the lower level at the end closest to the curved, "Billy the Kid" hillside seating.

    If you get tickets on the Blue side, you're close to the Brigade, and the "march on" will be towards you.

    Thanx Capt and Mom

    parents got Blue side tickets, but best available were in Section 1-other end of stadium, Row J. Apparently Plebes cannot cross stadium, so maybe we can say hi as long as we are on the same side of field...

    Plebes can't go to parents' seats, but I see plenty of parents coming around to Blue lower concourse who just happen to run into their mids at the refreshment stands... you can manage a short visit, but don't put your plebe in the limelight by extended hanging about.

    Mids are in a duty status at the game, aren't released to liberty or other duties until Blue and Gold is sung post-game. So, it's their joyful duty to express spirit and support the team, and they're not supposed to be roaming around. Plebes gotta deliver push-ups for every Navy score!

    There used to be a rule that 1/C can sit with parents/GF/BF at the game 2nd half as a privilege of their class, but I'm not sure what the current version of that rule is.

    Go Navy!

    Midshipman Seating at Navy Marine Memorial

    The Brigade stands in the seats with no backs, sections 7 and 8 on the Blue side lower level (maybe it is only section 8). If you go to NavySports.com under the Facilities tab is a kind of bad diagram of the seating, but there is a virtual tour and if you pick the "Blue Side Seating" view you will see the Brigade seats on the far left when the camera swings all the way back to the left, they are the lighter blue benches.
    This should go straight to the tour/diagram page http://www.navysports.com/facilities/nmcm-stadium-360/index.html

    Last year when my daughter was a plebe we would met her at half time just behind the Brigade seats next to the ATMs on the concourse. We would visit for the half and then they would head back in as the second half started. After the game, unless she had duty, they had liberty until midninght. Those rules and times change frequently, so they may not be the same this coming year.

    I do not know what the rules are for upperclass, I did see a few Firsties and Second class on the upper concourse during the second half, but not a lot.
