"This is a phenomenal achievement by the three organizations to secure such an historic event for our nation's capital," said Robert Sweeney, president of the Greater Washington Sports Alliance. "With nearly a half million active and retired military personnel currently living in our region and the historic memorials that honor our nation's service men and women, it just makes sense to have a game of this magnitude played in Washington, D.C."
The teams will play at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium in 2014 and 2016.
"I am so proud that two Maryland stadiums have now been selected to host three Army-Navy games between 2010 and 2017, and I personally look forward to witnessing these great match-ups," U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., said.
The Army-Navy game has been played 109 times. Philadelphia has been the host on 81 occasions.
