CHICAGO — With the 2015 NFL Draft coming soon to Chicago, the National Football League has released details how fans can attend.
The NFL announced Monday that fans can enter to win two free tickets to the draft beginning Tuesday, March 24, through April 5.
Fans can register at NFL.com/DraftTown beginning Tuesday at 11 a.m. CT, and continuing until 10:59 p.m. CT on April 5.
The winners will be randomly selected, the NFL said.
Tickets are available for both Auditorium Theatre and “Selection Square” draft events. The draft will run from April 30-May 2 at Roosevelt University.
Tickets are free but “limited,” the league said. The Auditorium Theatre seats a total of
3,901. New York’s Radio City Music Hall, which has previously hosted the event, seats 6,015.
Those without tickets can attend “Draft Town” festivities at Grant Park.
Winners will receive an email “on or around April 6,” the league said, with information on the date (one of the three days), venue (either Auditorium Theatre or Selection Square) and instructions for confirming attendance.
Email notifications will be distributed to fans who did not win at a later date.
The draft will be televised beginning at 7 p.m. CT April 30. The Chicago Bears have the seventh pick following a disappointing 5-11 season.
