Gillette Stadium in Foxborough will host the Army-Navy Game in 2023, a source told Sports Team 10’s Joe Kayata.
An official announcement is expected Wednesday afternoon.
The game is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023.
It was the third time the Kraft Sports and Entertainment Group put in a bid for the game.
Providence is expected to play a prominent role as the host city for Navy.
The Rhode Island Convention Center will serve as the home base for the more than 4,000 Midshipmen making the trip from Annapolis, Maryland.
Army would drive up day-of-game from West Point in New York and not stay overnight in the area.
Boston would be the headquarters for game events.
The city of Boston was one of seven finalists, which included Charlotte, North Carolina; Orlando, Florida; Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New Jersey.
The 2022 game is scheduled to be played in Philadelphia, where most of the rivalry’s matchups have been played.
