A photo game may not be everybody's thing, but a football game at this stadium is well worth experiencing.

3 star stadium in a 5 star location.
Oct 2019
5 star is actually too low. The West Point campus is AMAZING. The stadium is okay.
Pros.
Amazing location. This campus is beyond words.
Prices for food are not too bad for a stadium.
Crowds seemed better behaved than typical.
Restrooms were clean.
Cons
Parking is not good. Not all parking gets a bus. We ended up parked on some outside road. It was just over 1 mile UP HILL to the stadium. Walking back was obviously very easy.
The cross aisles are narrow in the front and jam up during half time.

Tip 1
North end bleachers do not have a view of the screen without turning around. On a hot day the sun would be strongly in your face. Facing into the sun lowers visual contrast so the views are not nearly as good.
Tip 2
If you have someone who cannot walk far or is handicapped, MAKE ARRANGEMENTS. Again, we walked 1 MILE UP HILL from down by the river. There were numerous people who had to take breaks walking up toward the stadium.

I try to make one game every year and this year did not disappoint. Everyone is so friendly and have great pride in supporting our military. You will make friends with complete strangers. Tailgating is a must so get to West Point bright and early. And the pregame activities are awesome so find your seat at least you 20 mins prior to kickoff. Go Army!

A wonderful venue to see Army Black Knights in action and the Corps of Cadets cheer them on
Sep 2019
Michie is a modern stadium set in the idyllic grounds of the historical United States Military Academy. The seats are comfortable, and the views are spectacular. The game is played amidst much military pageantry: canons fired for every point scored, push-up contests among cheerleaders and military officers, the Corps of Cadets going cheering their classmates with wild enthusiasm, etc.

Though I never played, and don’t really follow football, there is a hallowed tradition. The sport requires determination, guts, and the ability to work as a team and think on your feet and while under duress. No wonder there is the story, probably apocryphal, that a General during WWII once exclaimed: “I want an officer for a secret and dangerous mission. I want a West Point football player.” Indeed, President of the United States and General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower and General of the Army Omar Bradley were on the 1912 Army football team.

Best place in America to see a college football game!
Oct 2019
Several years ago Sports Illustrated selected West Point as the best place in America to see a college football game. I attended my first one in the mid 1950's and still attend games there. The game day experience is unmatched anywhere else. The parade in the morning, having fun in Black Knight Alley, the Black Knights parachuting into the stadium, the Corp, the fans, and the great spirit and sportsmanship displayed by all adds up to a spectacular experience. Oh yes, you can throw in the scenery because it is spectacular also.

Great football stadium

West Point is amazing in itself however the atmosphere in Michie Stadium during a football game makes it one of the greatest places to visit. I’m dazzled and awed each time I visit.

Incredible venue to watch a football game!
Nov 2018 • Couples
I've been going to Michie Stadium for years to watch Army Football. This is the best example of student athletes at their finest! They fight until the last second of the game, then they sing the winner's Alma Mater, even if it's not them! The scenery is incredible, and the game day activities, from the parade to tailgating, to the entire game experience, can't be beat! Do yourself a favor and get tickets to an Army home game!

Beautiful old stadium and unmatched scenery or pagentry
Nov 2018 • Couples
I have been an Army football fan for over 50 years and season ticket holder for more than 30. I love coming to Michie Stadium and the tailgates with old friends -meeting new friends too. There is nothing in college football to match the experience of a football game at Michie Stadium. I have been to national bowl games and huge stadiums in American cities and seen college games between nationally ranked rivals, but none of them match the spirit of Army football and the United States Corps of Cadets. Since the stadium was built in the 1920s, it did not have easy assess for handicapped or people having trouble walking or climbing/descending stairs. There are lots of stairs and steep hills at West Point. There are no railings for the stairs and that makes it dangerous for people who are less steady on their feet. Long time fans and older friends of mine, including my wife have stopped going to the games due to the lack of railings or access from parking to our reserved seats. The Army Athletic Association needs to invest the money to upgrade the stadium to OSHA standards for the safety of its fans.

This was part of the West Point Bus Tour, and this stadium is named after the person who assembled the first Army football team to compete against the Navy. It holds 40,000 people and is nicely laid out (for a football stadium). There was not a game in play when I visited but looked good...
