Army and Navy have settled on three sites in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., to host their next eight games running through the 2017 season.

Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field will host five of those games (2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017) while the 2011 Army-Navy game will be played at FedEx Field in Washington, D.C., the first time the game has ever been played in the nation's capital, and the 2014 and 2016 games will be played at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium.

"We are grateful to the cities that came forward with extraordinary enthusiasm and extended unprecedented commitments in their efforts to attract this classic event," U.S. Naval Academy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said in a statement. "This process reinforced that the Army-Navy game remains an extremely desirable event with the highest level of national respect. The Brigade of Midshipmen, Corps of Cadets, and our most loyal fans will continue to enjoy the pageantry of college football at its best in these great cities with world class facilities and broad based community support."

This announcement ends an almost yearlong search for a future site of "America's Game."
