The 121st Military-Navy soccer recreation, which was initially presupposed to be performed in Philadelphia in December, will now happen at Michie Stadium on the US Army Academy in West Level, New York. It is the primary time an Military-Navy soccer recreation has been performed at a house stadium since World Battle II when the Naval Academy hosted the 1942 recreation and West Level the 1943 recreation.
However although the situation change is historic, only a few folks will be capable of see it in individual.
So whereas most followers will see the sport from a TV display, it is nonetheless a sight that hasn’t been seen in almost 80 years.
Why did the soccer recreation transfer to West Level?
“The health and welfare of the Corps of Cadets and Brigade of Midshipmen is the number one priority,” stated Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, the superintendent of West Level. “Hosting the Army-Navy Game on West Point will be the safest way for the Cadets and Midshipmen to experience the game.”
Because the Military Black Knights are the house group, the sport was relocated to West Level. If the Navy had been the house group, then the sport would have been moved to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
