The rivalry between the Army and Navy began back in 1890. President Trump will become the 10th commander-in-chief to attend the game while in office.
He last attended the game as president-elect back in 2016.
As per tradition, he’s expected to split his time between the Army and Navy side of the stadium, and meet both teams before returning to the White House.
