Chick-fil-A is now an official associate partner of the 119th Army- Navy Game presented by USAA. One of the most storied and iconic rivalries in all of sports will take place on Saturday, December 8 at 3:00 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field with the broadcast on CBS. The Chick-fil-A partnership includes a pop-up restaurant in Philadelphia that will be part of an experiential watch party for military service men and women. Chick-fil-A will host active duty military, veterans and their families at the private event.
The 2018 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in September marked several firsts: the first Kickoff Game held at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta; the game’s first SEC vs. Pac-12 match-up with the Auburn Tigers narrowly defeating the Washington Huskies; and lastly, the announcement that Chick-fil-A will become the first presenting sponsor of the Wuerffel Trophy.
“Why do you have a Chick-fil-A that’s closed on Sundays in a professional football stadium?” That’s the question customers around the country asked when news broke that Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta would have a Chick-fil-A outpost. It’s a reasonable question to ask, after all, because most professional football games are played on Sundays.

With college football season in full swing, we checked in with the team at ESPN’s College GameDay and asked them to make their picks – not for a winning team, but for their top order at Chick-fil-A. And just like picking a winner on the field, the experts had some opinionated answers.
The playbook is memorized. The field is freshly painted with school colors and the coaching staff has scripted the first set of plays. It’s fall and that means it’s college football season at more than 700 college and universities around the country.
