TAMPA (NBC) – President Donald Trump is expected to attend this weekend’s Army-Navy football game.
U.S. Naval Academy’s athletic director Chet Gladchuk told board members Monday the president will be at the game Saturday at West Point.
The 121st match-up between the rivals was initially scheduled to take place in Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, but limits on the size of the crowd due to the COVID-19 pandemic would have prevented all midshipmen and cadets from attending. Students from both schools will be at Michie Stadium, but no fans.
This is the first time the storied rivalry will be held at an academy’s field since 1943.
