The NFL announced that more than 100,000 fans have signed up for the NFL’s draft lottery, an 11 percent increase from the same time last year. It makes it the highest number of registrations over a three-day period in draft history, according to a press release.

Fans from all 50 states have registered to attend, with Texas, Pennsylvania, California, New Jersey and Oklahoma leading the way.

Those who registered are entered into a free lottery to win seated tickets inside the “NFL Draft Theater” for the April 26-28 event in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

This marks the first time the NFL has held its draft inside a stadium, and it will be the largest free festival ever created by the league. It will span the size of 26 football fields and feature immersive experiences, virtual reality, player appearances, and more.

Registration for the draft lottery continues until March 14 at 11:59 p.m. ET on NFL.com/FanMobilePass.

  1. That’s a lot of people who want to watch something about as exciting as watching paint dry. To each his own I guess

  2. The Eagles should bring out their Lombardi trophy when they announce their pick. That way Cowboys fans can see what one looks like without dust and rust on it!

  3. It is mostly unemployed fanboys looking for their next fix after the combine. Christ, you couldn’t pay me to watch these events on tv, let alone attend.

    Good idea. Then the Eagles can go see what five of them in one case looks like.

    If the Cowboys rings are so old, what’s taking yall so long to catch up?

    I think all five are polished nicely. I can assure you that one single Lombardi doesn’t impress any Cowboy fan.

    s fan.

  7. I will agree with those who say this event is a waste of time and most people have never seen most of these guys play or know who they are. Furthermore, even so called experts like Kiper have no business in anyone’s draft room (that’s why they’re not there).

  8. I went to the draft a couple of times when it was at the Madison Square Garden Theatre. It is a good time. I’m not sure if it would be the same in a Stadium. In the Garden Theatre, after being on stage the players came out a couple of rows in front of us. My kids got the autographs they wanted and you saw how massive a 6’6″ , 330 lb. guy with 8% body fat is up close. If you have never been, put it on the bucket list.
