PHILADELPHIA (AP) - President Donald Trump will attend Saturday's Army-Navy Game in Philadelphia.
The White House confirmed Trump's attendance to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Trump also went to the 2016 game when he was president-elect.
Trump will be the 10th sitting president to attend Army-Navy, a tradition that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. Barack Obama was the most recent president to attend the game, in 2011 at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.
Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said at the annual pregame luncheon in Philadelphia last week that that school is always prepared for the president to attend.
Army will try to win for the third straight time in the series after losing the previous 14. The rivalry between the service academies began in 1890.
