It’s Army-Navy Game week and we have some fun news to share!
In a year full of uncertainty, one of college football’s most treasured and storied rivalries is set to take place for the 121st time this Saturday, December 12, 2020 as the Army Black Knights take on the Navy Midshipmen at Michie Stadium on the campus of the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. The last time the Army-Navy Game was played at West Point was in 1943.
This competitive rivalry is something all Americans can get behind and support no matter your background!
Since this year only the Brigade of Midshipmen and Corps of Cadets, the students at each academy, will be allowed in the stands, USAA, the presenting sponsor of 121st Army-Navy Game, is launching the “Army-Navy House” sweepstakes ahead of the game to help fans continue to celebrate the game’s rivalry and traditions despite COVID-19 restrictions.
This sweepstakes will allow fans to carry on the rivalry from the comfort of their home. Fans can visit www.ArmyNavyHouse.com and upload a photo that shows off their fandom to be entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to the 2021 Army-Navy Game in New York City. One winner from each fandom will be chosen. Fans can also share their uploaded photos to social media using the hashtag #ArmyNavyHouse.
“There is no other rivalry that matches the passion, tradition and patriotism of the Army-Navy Game,” said USAA Chief Brand Officer Tony Wells, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. “Brothers and sisters in arms all year, this is the one afternoon when they are rivals. While we share fans’ disappointment that we cannot celebrate these future leaders in person, we can still share our support through Army-Navy House and come together virtually as we have learned to do during this pandemic.”
In addition to the two grand prize winners, 1,000 fans from each Academy who upload a photo will be eligible to win a commemorative ticket from this year’s game. Many Army-Navy fans have ticket stubs from games they have attended for the past 10, 20 or 30 years in a row. The commemorative ticket is a chance for fans to keep their streak alive even though they can’t be there in person.
Be sure to show your team spirit by uploading your fan photo at www.armynavyhouse.com or on social using #ArmyNavyHouse.
