The NFL Draft is going on the road again.
The annual event which since leaving its traditional space at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall has since traveled to Chicago and Philadelphia.
Well this season, the 83rd annual NFL draft finds itself in Dallas at the state of the art AT&T Stadium – marking the first time in history that it will be held at an NFL stadium.
The Draft site will encompass the field, stands, and outdoor plazas, creating an all-encompassing atmosphere and enabling more fans than ever before to watch their favorite team’s selections.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement yesterday at the league’s annual Fall Meeting, following a review of the proposal by the Super Bowl & Major Events Advisory Committee and full ownership.
As part of the event, the NFL Draft Experience presented by Dannon Oikos Triple Zero—which is calorie and Cam Newton free—will be a free festival where fans of all teams can participate in football drills, enjoy interactive exhibits and autograph sessions, and take pictures with the Vince Lombardi Trophy – will take over the plazas directly outside the stadium, transforming the area for attendees.
See you in Dallas on Thursday, April 26th and sadly—it looks like once again, the Cleveland Browns are on the clock.
