Registration is now open for the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia from April 27 to April 29, the NFL announced today. Fans may sign-up at NFL.com/FanMobilePass or download the NFL Draft – Fan Mobile Pass app (which will launch in mid-April) to participate in the free NFL Draft Experience presented by Dannon Oikos Triple Zero, the largest fan festival created by the league, spanning the size of 25 football fields.
At the NFL Draft Experience, fans can partake in interactive activities, such as a 100-yard zip line, the Vertical Jump, and the 40-Yard Dash, immersive games and virtual reality experiences, player autograph sessions, and more. Additional information, including a list of events, is available at NFL.com/DraftExperience.
The NFL is providing fans with more opportunities than ever before to see the event by constructing an open-air theater on the steps of the historic Philadelphia Art Museum. For the first time, fans will be able to view all three days of the NFL Draft in an outdoor environment, as well as participate in free attractions as part of the NFL Draft Experience.
By registering for Fan Mobile Pass, fans will also be eligible to win a free ticket for themselves and a guest to access seating inside the NFL Draft Theater. Fans without seated tickets can still watch team selections due to the unique outdoor nature of this year's event.
