If you are an Army-Navy football fan - get ready to go to Philadelphia. 

On Tuesday the Naval Academy released that the next four years of games will be hosted in the city of brotherly love. 

The site of the 2021 football has not been announced, but the Naval Academy says they plan to release the location sometime Tuesday afternoon.  

“The legacy of the City of Brotherly Love and the home of Army-Navy continues to be the benchmark for hosting America's game,” said Gladchuk. “This tradition in Philly is so well received and embraced by the city and community that it remains a highlight of the season for the teams, alumni, and fans.  Our appreciation to everyone, including USAA, who works so hard to make this week-long festival, culminating with our nation's cherished match-up between Army and Navy, the fantastic experience it is.”

West Point Director of Athletics, Boo Corrigan, thanked the Philadelphia Eagles and all PHL sports for letting the teams use their field. 

Philadelphia has hosted 86 of the 117 Army-Navy games. Game number 87 will be on December 9, 2017. 

The Navy leads the most intense rivalry 60-50-7.
