1. What city traditionally hosts the game?

Although last year’s Army-Navy game was played in Landover, Md. (suburban Washington), the vast majority of the games in the series have been played in Philadelphia, beginning in 1899 at Franklin Field and this year at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia is attractive as a neutral site about equidistant between the academies, plus it has a lot of American history associated with it. Other places where the game has been played include New York; Baltimore; Pasadena, Calif.; and on the academy campuses.
