The Secretaries Cup is an annual college football game between the United States Coast Guard Academy and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Both academies compete in NCAA Division III athletics.
The Secretaries Cup is the biggest rivalry game of the season for both schools.
Once known as the "Secretary's Cup" when both academies resided in the U.S. Department of Transportation, the name of the contest was pluralized when the U.S. Coast Guard moved to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2003.
The game alternates location between Cadet Memorial Field in New London, Connecticut (the location of the Coast Guard Academy), and Captain Tomb Field in Kings Point, New York (home of the Merchant Marine Academy).
