Army-Navy Soccer – November 7, 2014


Please mark you calendars for Friday night, November 7th, and Save the Date.

On Friday night, November 7th, at 7:00 PM, Army will battle Navy in a Patriot League soccer rivalry at PPL Park in Chester, PA.
This is the 3rd annual event held at PPL Park, and if history is any indication, it will be exciting and down to the wire.

What’s even better, SPPA will be hosting this event, with assistance from the “Friends of Soccer” team parents, the USNA Philadelphia Chapter Alumni Association and the Naval Academy Athletic Association.

What does that mean for SPPA? Well, it means we’re going to need some help, but don’t worry, it’s a weekend off from football. Since there’s no football game scheduled for that weekend, why not come on out and cheer on the soccer team! We are going to relocate the SPPA trailer from it’s autumn home at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium and tailgate for the midshipmen at this event, providing dinner for the soccer team as well as two buses of midshipmen that are expected to come up from Annapolis. We will be asking SPPA members to volunteer to cook a side dish or dessert and bring it on down to PPL Park for the tailgate.

The soccer game is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM, but we will need some volunteers to help with set up and cooking/serving. Once the midshipmen come through, we will break down the tailgate, so everyone can make their way inside PPL Park to enjoy the game. There will be more details coming out in the next couple weeks, but we wanted to get the message out and ask you to save the date.

For more information about the game and to buy tickets, please visit the Philadelphia Union website.

Thank you in advance for your continued commitment to our midshipmen!
