2021 Army Football Uniform

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Special Forces Operational Detachment Alphas (ODAs) from the 5th Special Forces Group were called upon to rapidly deploy from Fort Campbell, KY to Afghanistan. America called upon them to stand tall and take the fight to a distant enemy under extremely adverse conditions. They readily answered that call. These are the ODAs we honor with this year’s Army-Navy uniform — the ODAs of Task Force Dagger. This uniform represents the undaunted courage of these ODAs, and all who supported them. Our nation remembers and honors these soldiers, some who continue to serve as Special Forces operators to this day. Their sacrifices are emblazoned on the uniform that will be showcased at the 2021 Army-Navy game, being played just 11 miles from Ground Zero. Learn more at https://www.unitedwestand.football/.

History of the Army-Navy Game

The Army–Navy Game is an American college football rivalry game between the Army Black Knights of the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, New York, and the Navy Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy (USNA) at Annapolis, Maryland. The game has come to embody the spirit of the interservice rivalry of the United States Armed Forces. The game marks the end of the college football regular season and the third and final game of the season's Commander-in-Chief's Trophy series, which also includes the Air Force Falcons of the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) near Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Army–Navy game is one of the most traditional and enduring rivalries in college football. It has been frequently attended by sitting U.S. presidents. The game has been nationally televised each year since 1945 on either ABC, CBS, or NBC. CBS has televised the game since 1996 and has the rights to the broadcast through 2028.

Army and Navy first met on the field on November 29, 1890, and have met annually since 1930. The game has been held at several locations throughout its history, including New York City and Baltimore, but has most frequently been played in Philadelphia, roughly equidistant from the two academies. Historically played on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (a date on which most other major college football teams end their regular seasons), the game is now played on the second Saturday in December and is traditionally the last regular-season game played in NCAA Division I football.
