The Army Black Knights football program is one of the most storied in all of college football. The team represents the United States Military Academy, and is thus associated with a high level of tradition and honor. Attending an Army game, especially against Navy or the Air Force Academy in the hunt for the Commander in Chief's Trophy, is one of the most impressive college football experiences a fan can have.
The Army Black Knights play football today as an independent having left the Conference USA after 2004. Army first fielded a football team in 1890. The program reached its greatest success in the 1940's under head coach Earl Blaik when the team won 2 back-to-back national titles in 1944 and 1945. Blaik's teams would produce 3 Heisman Trophy winners in the ‘40s and ‘50s. Bill Parcells and Vince Lombardi gained some of their earliest coaching experience with the Black Knights before going on to become legendary NFL coaches.
The Army Black Knights play their home football games at Michie Stadium at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. The stadium was rated by Sports Illustrated as the #3 ranked sports venue of the 20th century due to its breathtaking view of the Hudson River Valley and the USMA campus below. Michie Stadium holds a capacity crowd of just under 40,000 spectators. Attend an Army game you'll see all the cadets in attendance stand for the duration of the game. A game against one of the other academies is an epic battle you'll never forget. Buy Army Black Knights football tickets today and be a part of the tradition!
