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.

No sites have been determined beyond 2009.
