Press Release: Baltimore To Host Events In Celebration Of Army-Navy Game Presented By USAA

Posted Dec 2, 2014

BALTIMORE TO HOST EVENTS IN CELEBRATION OF ARMY-NAVY GAME PRESENTED BY USAA

BALTIMORE – The State of Maryland, the City of Baltimore and the Baltimore Ravens welcome the 115th Army-Navy Game presented by USAA to Baltimore with a celebration of free activities for residents and visitors. With interactive exhibits and tours of military equipment and technology, a rally featuring pep bands and cheerleaders, and the annual march of thousands of Cadets and Midshipmen, Baltimore’s Army-Navy celebration is sure to get everyone excited. The Army-Navy Game presented by USAA will take place Saturday, Dec. 13 at M&T Bank Stadium and kicks off at 3 p.m.

“Working together with our partners in the City, private businesses and community leaders, this time-honored tradition is back in the State of Maryland,” said Governor Martin O’Malley. “Thanks to their leadership, we’ll stimulate economic impact for the City and State and showcase Maryland’s outstanding assets on the national stage as we honor the brave men and women of our armed forces.”

“The return of the Army-Navy Game presented by USAA to Baltimore is very important to the city,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. “Each year, millions view this game on television and thousands attend, drawing national attention to our city and giving out-of-town visitors an opportunity to explore Baltimore. I am also excited about the addition of the public events, which complement the celebration and offer those who missed the game a chance to still take part in the fun. I look forward to the game and all the events surrounding it.”

The celebration features a weekend of events surrounding the game. On Friday, Dec. 12, the Inner Harbor fills with military displays, hands-on exhibits, vehicles and demonstrations, and will also feature a variety of Army and Navy ships open for public visits. For the first time, ESPN’s College GameDay will appear in Baltimore, broadcasting from the Inner Harbor the morning of Dec. 13.  ESPN’s signature college football show will air from 9-11 a.m. with host Chris Fowler and analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso and Desmond Howard. Historically, College GameDay is live from that day’s marquee college football matchup. Navy has won the past 12 games against Army, including last year’s 34-7 victory in Philadelphia. The Midshipmen lead the all-time series, 58-49-7.

The Patriot Games kick off the weekend celebration at Fort McHenry on Friday, Dec. 12 at 9 a.m. Teams of Cadets and Midshipmen earn points through five events, four of which take place at Fort McHenry and along the Inner Harbor waterfront on Friday, including a leadership reaction course, Zodiac carry race, tug-of-war and pull-up challenge. The fifth event and presentation of the Patriot Games trophy will take place on Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium.

The spirit of the game hits an all-time high with the official Army-Navy Pep Rally on Friday, Dec. 12 at noon in the Inner Harbor Amphitheater. Pep squads and cheerleaders from both military academies come together to perform athletic and musical routines and encourage fans to root for both teams. The Pep Rally is hosted by WBAL’s Keith Mills, with remarks by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Downtown Baltimore fills with thousands of Midshipmen and Army Cadets during the March Over from the Camden Yards Sports Complex to M&T Bank Stadium, which takes place Saturday, Dec. 13, starting at noon.
