The Tug-of-War is part of the annual Patriot Games — a two-day, five-event competition between teams of Cadets and the Midshipmen that take place in various Philadelphia landmarks. Other events scheduled are a Rocky Relay, December 8 at 8:30am at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Leadership Reaction Course at the National Constitution Center at 10 AM, the Pull-Up Challenge, December 8 at noon at The Shops at Liberty Place; and the finale on Saturday, with the Stadium Obstacle Relay, December 9 at 1:15pm at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Patriot Games lead up to the annual Army vs Navy football game on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
Past Tug-of-Wars at the Battleship also featured both academies’ bands, spirit squads, mascots and even an Army tank!
