Increased Security For Army/Navy Saturday With Obama Expected to Attend

December 09, 2011 | WNST Staff

Fans attending the Army-Navy game presented by USAA at FedExField on Saturday, Dec. 10 are encouraged to arrive early to allow ample time to get through security due to high profile dignitaries attending the game.

Increased security will be at all gates and may result in a longer entry process, so fans are encouraged to allow plenty of time to get into the stadium. Parking lots will be open at 8:30 a.m. and stadium gates will open at 9:30 a.m.

All fans will be screened before entering the stadium. FedExField’s security lines will be similar to those at the airport. Fans will need to remove all metal objects that may set off the metal-detectors such as keys, change and cell phones. Security lines are expected to be long; fans are advised to plan accordingly.
