Army is giving two people aged 18 or over the chance to spend the day with the Army football equipment staff, and allowing them to see the procedures that go on during gameday.
One of the best parts about the whole experience is that it will take place during the Army-Navy game, one of the best games in terms of tradition all season.
The game day experience agenda will include the following, from Army Auctions:
Start time: Approximately 3.5 hours before kickoff
Brief introduction to the Army Equipment staff and its game day routine
Get outfitted in your Official Nike Army Football Sideline Apparel
Tour of our Equipment Facilities and opportunity to try on an Army Helmet and Jersey
Assist in setting up the Black Knights’ Locker Room including putting out players’ Game Jerseys and Pants along with putting the final shine on Helmets
Take an all access tour of the facilities at Lincoln Financial Field, the host of this year’s Army-Navy game.
Accompany the Equipment manager as we greet the team when they arrive to the facility and assist the Equipment Staff in handling any equipment needs the players or coaches may have.
Take a picture with the Equipment staff on the field at Lincoln Financial Field. This photo will be framed and presented to you as a thank you for your assistance in helping “The Hardest-Working Equipment Staff in the Country”

Follow the team as they run onto the field at Lincoln Financial Field for the 2015 Army-Navy Game

That’s quite the slate, and if you’re a fan of Army football, it sounds like an experience worth investing in. You get to greet the team, as well as following the team as they run onto the field. That’s just about any diehard fan’s dream.
You’ll also have one of the best seats in the house, on the field at Lincoln Financial in Philadelphia.
