PHOENIX — Fans who want to attend the NFL Draft in Chicago from April 30 to May 2 now have a way to get tickets.

Starting Tuesday at 11 a.m. and ending April 5 at 10:59 p.m., fans can register at NFL.com/DraftTown to win two free tickets, the league announced Monday the NFL Annual Meeting.

Winners will be randomly selected and receive an email telling them such. They will have to confirm their attendance by April 8.

The league said a limited number of tickets will be available for the Auditorium Theatre and the outdoor Selection Square for the three days of the draft.

The NFL said it will give away 2,800 theater seats and 1,000 selection square tickets the first two days, and 1,000 selection square tickets the final day.

Fans who have been selected will have to present a government ID, if they’re over 18, and the code given to them by the NFL to gain admission.

DraftTown, the name of the gathering in Grant Park, is also free. No tickets are required.

The league announced, too, that on May 2, draft selections will take place outside at Selection Square and at locations across the country, at each team’s facilities.

Selection Square will be located across Michigan Ave. from the Auditoriumm Theatre.
