    Today is the first day Mids can order all football home games (Air Force in Annapolis on 7 Oct) and the Army Navy Game in Philly on 9 Dec. Time to give them a call! Don't wait!

    Try contacting your local parents club. Usually they buy a block of seats together.

    I just checked navysports.com - doesn't look like tix to regular home football games are on sale to general public. Roughly speaking. season ticket holders have first dibs when they are offered a renewal chance, then mids, then general public.

    It will be an away game for AF, and I would assume a block of tix will be made available for them to requisition.

    Ask any AFA parent to pm you? We don't want you to be cheering the wrong team from the wrong side! :D

    Of note...... midshipman can only buy Upper Level seats for Army-Navy. If you were looking for good seats, wait for Stubhub or something. The Linc doesn't have awful views from the top, but with the wind it can get significantly colder up there than in the lower level.

    Just a FYI.

    Navysports.com also has a buy-sell marketplace, though I haven't checked it in a while.

    @BDHuff09, you forgot you did not need your bridge coat in Philly two years ago already? It was in the 70's that day!

    @DrMom, we always need fans sitting on the wrong side to cheer for the wrong team to keep the spirit high! :D

    Philly was super warm then, but my parents froze to death last year in Baltimore sitting on the upper deck. It was at least 10 degrees colder up there with the wind chill.

    So this is what I have been waiting for. I have a P2B class of 2021. How do we get tickets for the regular games and most importantly Navy/Army?

    We attended both the Army/AF game, and the Army/Navy game last year. Both great experiences, but loosing to Air Force just didnt seem as fun as BEATING NAVY! You all knew that ARMY BEAT NAVY, right?

    I highly recommend anyone who hasn't been to an Army/Navy game to get to one. We are going again this year. The day before, the game day morning, the march on, the game, the post game are all super cool. The cold; not so hot! LOL. If they could fix the thermostat in those outdoor stadiums during December we would be all set. Cant they get a dome in Philadelphia? We do that in Detroit.

    I just booked a hotel on the other side of the BF Bridge, in Deptford NJ because I'm too cheap to pay $300 per night to stay downtown. Hope it works out.

    So just keep thinking..... GO ARMY!!! BEAT NAVY!!!

    Last year, plebe parents were offered the chance to buy Army-Navy tickets the first week of June, if I remember correctly. I think we received an email with further info closer to that time. You can buy 4 tickets, but be warned: they are nosebleed seats. You can call the ticket office if you want more information. They are nice folks and always willing to answer questions.

    Honestly, we get our tickets through the West Point Parents Club of Michigan, because our son is at WP, and the seats we got were nosebleeds on the corner, but it was cool being with all the other families of Cadets, and I know it would be the same for the families of midshipmen. The March On looked very cool, and we could almost grab the Apache helicopters as the flew by. I would rather sit in the rafters with the group of families of Cadets/mids than be at 50 yard line tenth row with anyone else.

    Oh I don't hate Navy. Love those kids too. Those kids are outstanding in all respects, and God bless them. But come on, my kid is at West Point. All ain't equal when it comes to Army/Navy. And if if were, Army would be way way more equal than Navy.

    We loved hanging out in Baltimore last December for Army/Navy weekend amongst all of the Cadets and Midshipmen. Was just great being around all those special kids in both uniforms (the caped grey overcoats being way cooler than those boring blue overcoats). Looking forward to all of that again in Philadelphia this year.

    Go Army!! Beat Navy!!
