With the NFL draft just 38 days away, fans are starting to ask a lot of questions about the events leading up to the 2021 NFL draft. The NFL announced on Monday that there will be a select number of prospects, fans and media crews on-site for the draft. Starting April 29th, the NFL will offer free events for fans to attend.
If NFL fans want to be in attendance for the 2021 NFL draft, they will be required to wear facial coverings. They'll also be required to maintain a six-feet social distancing policy. The NFL draft will be spread out in downtown Cleveland, Ohio at FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center.
One event that every NFL fan likes to attend leading up to the NFL draft is the NFL Draft Experience. Let's take a look at why the NFL Draft Experience is so popular.
What is the NFL Draft Experience?
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NFL fans must make reservations to be in attendance for the NFL Draft Experience. This is being done to manage the total capacity at one time. NFL fans can reserve their spot through the NFL OnePass app and that will be available to download March 29th onwards.
