Army-Navy Game

The Army-Navy Game is back at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday, December 14, 2019 and we could not be more excited because when Army and Navy meet, there is no other game with deeper foundations or greater prestige!

The rivalry kicked off when Cadet Dennis Mahan Michie accepted a “challenge” from the Naval Academy and the two squads faced off on The Plain at West Point on November 29, 1890. Navy had been playing organized football since 1879, and came out on top of the newly-established Army squad. Ever since, through those many years of intense cheers, unforgettable plays and climactic moments, the Army-Navy rivalry has been etched into the minds of countless fans and followers. All it takes is a visit to West Point or Annapolis, where everything (from the finely manicured hedges to the chant following grace-before-meals) proclaims “Beat Navy” or “Beat Army,” to understand how deeply ingrained this rivalry actually is. In 1899, Philadelphia was chosen as a neutral locale to host the Army-Navy Game and begin the rivalry anew. Franklin Field was the site of this game, and through the 20th and now 21st century, Municipal Stadium (later JFK Stadium), Veterans Stadium, and Lincoln Financial Field have all staged Army-Navy in Philadelphia. As the rivalry has moved into the new millennium, Philadelphia has continued to be the primary host of the storied series and the home of the game.

How to get there

If you’re heading down to the game, we suggest you leave the car at home [parking at Lincoln Financial Field costs $40!] and leave the driving to SEPTA. Because the best way there (and back again) is the Broad Street Line.

SEPTA's Broad Street Line drops you steps from Lincoln Financial Field. Hop it south to NRG Station (last stop). Trains run every 8 to 10 minutes. It takes about 13 minutes to travel from City Hall to NRG Station on a local train. It's 12 minutes from Walnut-Locust Station. For the Army-Navy Game, we will have Express Trains running which will speed your trip. See below for Express Train stops.

Due to increased security on game day, it is strongly encouraged that those attending the game arrive with plenty of time to pass through security.

Plus immediately following the end of the game, fans will find northbound trains waiting to provide local and express service back towards Center City and Fern Rock Transportation Center. You'll be the first one to McGillin's! Not happening if you opt to rely on a cab or rideshare!

Fare

One way fare on the Broad Street Line is $2.50 cash. You must have exact change if paying the cashier. The cashier cannot make change. But our Fare Kiosks located in every Broad Street Line Station can. You can purchase a Quick Trip to get you to and from the game. Each Quick Trip costs $2.50. Fare Kiosks accept cash, credit and debit. All Quick Trip tickets must be used on the date of purchase - so don't buy them the day before. They are not reloadable or reusable.

Your best bet, is a SEPTA Key Card. Available from SEPTA Sales Offices or from Fare Kiosks located in all Broad Street and Market-Frankford Line Stations. The SEPTA Key Travel Wallet allows you to pay as you go and you'll receive a discount for each ride ($2 versus the $2.50 cash fare). You must load a minimum of $5 at a SEPTA Sales Office. If you use a Fare Kiosk, the minimum is $1. You can use cash, credit, or debit to add funds to your Travel Wallet. Plus it's reloadable and reusable. A SEPTA Key Card will cost you $4.95 but if you register it here, we will put the $4.95 back on your card and just like that, you'll be ready for next year's game!

Registering your SEPTA Key also means if you lose it, you don't lose the value on the card. Please note, funds in your Travel Wallet can only be used to pay for one (1) person. It cannot be tapped multiple times to pay for anyone traveling with you.

​Note - One Day Individual Independence Passes are no longer available for purchase from a Conductor on board a Regional Rail train. Paper Independence Passes still available for purchase at Transit and Regional Rail Station Ticket Offices.

If you're coming from the suburbs, your best bet is to load an Independence Pass on to a SEPTA Key card. You can do this at a Regional Rail Station Fare Kiosk (you'll find these at Jefferson Station, 30th Street Station, Suburban Station, Temple University Station, University City Station, and at Philadelphia International Airport), SEPTA Transit/Regional Rail Sales or Ticket Window, or online at septakey.org. And yes - a SEPTA Key card initially costs $4.95 but when you register the card at septakey.org, $4.95 is added to the card's Travel Wallet which you can use for future rides or towards the purchase of another pass.
