Collegiate wrestling will make its return to San Diego when the USS Midway Museum plays host to the third-annual Battle on the Midway atop the flight deck of the famed aircraft carrier.
Twin duals are scheduled for the first time in the event’s brief history as Fresno State and Army West Point will kick off the 2019 collegiate wrestling season in the opening match, followed immediately thereafter by the University of Wisconsin facing the Naval Academy.
The Battle on the Midway is a limited-capacity event and as such a limited number of general admission tickets are available at $25 apiece. Gates are set to open at 6 p.m.
This will mark Fresno State’s third appearance in the Battle on the Midway, while Wisconsin, Army and Navy are all making their first-ever appearance aboard the USS Midway.
Wisconsin comes into the 2019-20 season off a 9-6 campaign in 2018-19 when they finished the year ranked 17th in the nation. Army West Point went 8-3 and ranked 23rd, while Navy (6-4) and Fresno State (9-8) both finished the season unranked.
Several other sporting events have been staged on the deck of the Midway, however the Battle on the Midway is the only wrestling event that has been staged aboard the famed aircraft-carrier that was used by U.S. Troops during the Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm.
