WASHINGTON — America’s Army-Navy rivalry game will continue on CBS Sports through 2028 after an extension agreement was reached.
“Army-Navy is more than a game, and it’s an honor to continue broadcasting this epic annual event,” said CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus in a news release.
The new agreement, beginning in 2019, provides for continued rights across CBS’s suite of platforms, broadcast coverage of the pregame show, and keeps the annual Army-Navy basketball showdown on CBS Sports.
“The Army-Navy game truly is America’s Game, and CBS has done a tremendous job telling the stories of our cadets and midshipmen from coast-to-coast,” said United States Military Academy athletics director Boo Corrigan.
The first football game between cadets and midshipmen was played on Nov. 29, 1890 at West Point. CBS has televised the game each year since 1996.
This year’s game will take place on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 3 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
