Kickoff for the 2011 season and the Navy vs. Delaware game is 3:30 p.m. today at the Navy Marine Corps Stadium on Rowe Boulevard in Annapolis.
Parking at the stadium is reserved for those with seasonal parking passes, but there's plenty of free parking for the rest of us at satellite lots. The most convenient location for Crofton residents is the Harry S. Truman Park & Ride, off Riva Road.
Free shuttle service begins five (5) hours prior to kickoff and drops riders off in front of the Navy Ticket Office at the Class of 1953 Pavilion. Shuttles run about 20 minutes apart. After the game, you can pick up the shuttle at the same spot, beginning at the start of the fourth quarter until 90 minutes after the game. Nothing like door to door service! Chances are good that you'll walk less between your car and the gate than folks who park at the stadium itself.
Crofton residents who have never attended a Navy game should do so at least once. Pre-game pageantry as the Brigade of Midshipmen march into the stadium and fill the field, one hour prior to the game, is a sight you won't soon forget. Even if you're not a football fan, per se, you might become a Navy Football fan - just for the game-day experience!
Reserved seating is just $35 for today's game, or you can get "standing room only" tickets for the grassy hill overlooking the stadium at $20 for adults and $12 for kids.
