Veterans’ hotel reservations for Army-Navy Game canceled in Massachusetts amid migrant influx

Getting a ticket to the coveted Army-Navy Game this year isn’t the toughest battle for military veterans, service academy graduates, and their families – it’s finding a hotel to stay at.

Military families who booked rooms in Foxboro, Massachusetts, which is the site of the 124th installment of this storied college football bout at Gillette Stadium, are getting cancelation notices from hotels that are being used by the state to house migrants.

Massachusetts has a “right to shelter” law, which ensures migrants and homeless families have somewhere to live.

“Any Army-Navy encounter on a sports field is the game for that sport,” he said. “So yes, you could be 0-30 for both teams and they will still believe this is the game.”

The game’s arrival in Foxboro this year has been 12 years in the making, as three formal bids were submitted to have Gillette Stadium host the game that brings in millions of tourism dollars to the area in which its played.
