More tickets now available for next weekend's 'NFL Draft Experience' in Cleveland

Reservations for the festival are free for all three days, but must be made using the NFL OnePass app.

CLEVELAND — If you were hoping to have fun at the NFL draft, you still have a chance.

The NFL on Friday announced it has made more tickets available for next weekend's "NFL Draft Experience" in Cleveland "following discussion with local health and city officials." The annual festival will take place in the area around FirstEnergy Stadium, featuring games, food, and plenty of other interactive activities.

Officials initially stated up to 50,000 fans would be allowed inside the Draft Experience at a time, so it is unknown if that number has now been increased or by how much. Visitors can only reserve one of nine slots over the three-day period before and during the draft, and they are as follows:

Thursday

  • Noon-4 p.m.
  • 4-7 p.m.
  • 7-10 p.m. (or end of first round)

Friday

  • Noon-4 p.m.
  • 4-7 p.m.
  • 7-10 p.m. (or end of third round)

Saturday

  • 9 a.m.-Noon
  • Noon-3 p.m.
  • 3-6 p.m. (or end of seventh and final round)

Tickets to the theme park are free, but must be made on the NFL OnePass app on your smartphone or digital device. Each reservation is good for up to two adults and five children per three-hour period.

While it is right outside FirstEnergy Stadium, access to the NFL Draft experience does not include views of or access to the draft's main stage and theater, which are reserved for those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Attendees to the experience do not have to be vaccinated, but are asked to maintain social distancing and must wear face masks except when eating or drinking in specialized consumption zones.
