Fans can now register for free entry by downloading the NFL OneP​ass app or on the web at NFL.com/DraftAccess. All adults are required to register but can also register up to five children to get into the event.

“The NFL Draft has an unmatched energy, one full of hope and opti​mism for both prospects, teams and fans, and we’re thrilled to welcome Detroit residents and visitors from around the country and the world to this unique, three-day free event,” said Peter O’Reilly, executive vice president, league events, club business and international at the NFL. “As the home of the 2024 NFL Draft, Detroit’s rich history and culture in football, music, art and style will be on full display for all fans and families to experience and enjoy.”

The 2024 NFL Draft Experience presented by Rocket Mortgage – the NFL’s ultimate fan festival – will take place during all three days of the Draft. This free fan experience invites Detroit residents and visitors to participate in immersive exhibits and sponsor activations; take photos with the Vince Lombardi Trophy; enjoy the youth-focused Play 60 Zone; shop exclusive merchandise at NFL Shop presented by Visa; and score autographs from current NFL players and Legends at the Autograph Stage. The player appearance schedule will be announced in the coming weeks and available exclusively in the NFL OnePass app.

 
Hart Plaza will host all Draft Experience Presented by Rocket Mortgage activations, including games, exhibits, player appearances and sponsor experiences. Corner Ballpark will host youth-focused activities, including NFL FLAG skills and drills and football clinics. Fans are encouraged to get to Draft Experience early, as attendance will be on a first-come first-served basis.

With Detroit’s distinct culture in music, art, food and style, the Draft Experience will feature elements unique to the Motor City. Food and beverage vendors will highlight the local fare, as the Taste of Detroit concessions will represent various neighborhoods in the city, including soul food, Greek, Mexican, Middle Eastern and East African cuisines. As an integral part of Detroit’s culture, dance will play a large role on Day 3 of the Draft. The Detroit Hustle will be celebrated across Campus Martius Park with fan participation encouraged.
