Army-Navy tickets remain available

Standing-room tickets are still on sale for the Dec. 6 game.

Army-Navy tickets remain available


Standing-room tickets remain for the Army-Navy Game on Saturday, Dec. 6, at Lincoln Financial Field. Those tickets cost $45 each and can be purchased at all Philadelphia-area Ticketmaster outlets, online at or by calling Ticketmaster at 215-336-2000. There is a limit of six tickets per purchase.

This is the 109th edition of the interservice rivalry and the 81st time it will be played in Philadelphia. It was played for the first time here in 1899.

Game time is noon, although the spectacle of the event starts much earlier. The Navy march-on will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the Army march-on will begin a half-hour later. CBS will broadcast the game.

Next year's game will be played here on the second Saturday in December (Dec. 12), marking a change that will move it away from any conference championships around the country and establish it as the last regular-season college football game.

About this blog
Paul Vigna still has the seat he wrestled out of the concrete at Connie Mack Stadium parked in the finished basement, a 1980 Phillies championship mirror hanging above it. Now, why he’s kept an autograph of former Flyer Bruce Gamble on a sheet of Hockey Hall of Fame paper is another story. A native of Philly who grew up in Lansdale, he’s an assistant sports editor at the Daily News in charge of special projects who has written two columns related to sports and consumers: View From the Seats and Savvy Consumer.

Athletic contests were, for a long time, simply fun and games. Nowadays they’re just a small part of a sports entertainment industry that puts billions of dollars into play and a number of issues into motion. Moneyball indeed. You might be closer to the action than ever before, but that privilege comes at a price - and often it’s beyond what you can afford.

With that as the backdrop we’ll use this blog to dig out stories and swap advice about how the fan experience is changing and what it’s costing you now and in the future. Some of it will educate, some will let you vent. And in a sports panel format, it should allow for a consensus of opinion that can carry some weight.
