Where does the Army Black Knights play home games?
The Army Black Knights plays its home games at Michie Stadium, which is located on the U.S. Military Academy campus in West Point, N. Y. The stadium was named for David Michie. While Michie was a cadet at the academy, he organized and captained the school's first football team. He was killed in action six years after graduation in 1898. The stadium has a capacity of 38,000; this is far too small to host the large crowds drawn in by rivalry games, so Michie Stadium has only hosted the Navy Midshipmen once in 1943.
