“The VFTCB can’t wait to welcome Army-Navy’s more than 50,000 fans to the region,” said VFTCB President & CEO Mike Bowman. “While they’re here, we’ll certainly take this opportunity to raise awareness of all the things to do and places to stay for an unforgettable weekend in Montgomery County, PA! Embodying the spirit of the inter-service rivalry of the U.S. Armed Forces, the weekend is also a chance to honor the men and women of our nation’s military and thank them for their service.”

A nationally televised event with more than eight million viewers, the Army-Navy game has teams and schools with passionate followers spread out in markets outside the city and across the country. Frequently attended by sitting U.S. presidents, the football game brings 30,000 room nights and more than $30 million in estimated economic impact.

The marketing partnership will give Montco name recognition on the game scoreboard and program, in e-blasts, and on the Army-Navy website with a link to Montgomery County hotels.
