NFL announces process for fans who want to attend 2017 Draft in Philadelphia

 

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 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 Museum of Art. 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.

 

Fans attending the NFL Draft Experience will also have the chance to receive standby tickets to the theater, as seats become available, by checking-in at the event through the Fan Mobile Pass app on Thursday for Round 1, Friday for Rounds 2-3, and Saturday for Rounds 4-7.

 

The NFL Draft will be televised nationally by NFL Network and ESPN at the following times:

  • Thursday, April 27 – 8:00 PM ET
  • Friday, April 28 – 7:00 PM ET
  • Saturday, April 29 – 12:00 PM ET

Important Dates for Fans:

  • March 6: Fans may now sign-up for Fan Mobile Pass at NFL.com/FanMobilePass. By registering, fans will have access to the NFL Draft Experience, as well as the chance to win a free ticket for themselves and a guest to access seating inside the NFL Draft Theater.

  • March 19: Until Sunday, March 19 at 11:59 PM ET, fans may register for Fan Mobile Pass to be eligible for free seated tickets inside the NFL Draft Theater. After March 19, registration remains open for the NFL Draft Experience, which also makes fans eligible for standby theater tickets as seats become available.

Gene Smith, Ohio State senior vice president and Wolfe Foundation endowed athletics director, issued the following statement Tuesday on Thad Matta, Ohio State head men’s basketball coach.

 

“Recently, Thad and I had a great discussion regarding the future of our Men’s Basketball Program,” Smith said. “Thad’s record at Ohio State is an outstanding 337-122; a winning percentage of .734. He is the all-time wins leader and owns the record for most games coached at Ohio State. His teams have won five Big Ten titles, and made nine NCAA postseason appearances.  What Thad’s teams at Ohio State have accomplished – both on and off the court – is highly commendable.

 

“While we are not currently where we aspire to be with our performance on the court, Thad understands better than anyone that component has to improve.  I am confident in his leadership to return the program to the winning ways that we have all enjoyed during his 13 year tenure.

 

“We have had tremendous success with Thad as our basketball coach. His commitment to developing young men in a holistic way and running our program with the highest of integrity continue to be hallmarks of his leadership.”

 

PLEASE NOTE: The Buckeyes lost to Rutgers for the first time ever Wednesday night, 66-57. It is believed that the Buckeyes should get an  NIT bid and the selection process starts on March 12th. Some fans don’t believe that OSU should be in the NIT. But the experience is invaluable to the team. Plus the selection committee always tries to pick “name” schools with big arenas that will sell tickets and Value City Arena fills the bill and so does Ohio State. Records don’t mean much when it comes to the NIT.
