Green Bay to Host 2025 NFL Draft


MINNEAPOLIS, MN — The NFL announced on Monday that they will hold the 2025 NFL Draft in Green Bay inside and around the iconic Lambeau Field and the Titletown campus. The announcement came at the Spring meeting in Minneapolis following a review of the proposal by the Fan Engagement & Major Events Advisory Committee and full ownership.

"The Draft has become our biggest offseason event hosted in different cities with spectacular locations across the country, and we are excited to work with the Packers and Discover Green Bay to bring the 2025 NFL Draft to Green Bay and iconic Lambeau field," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. 

"With the help of numerous local partners on the ground, our prospects and fans will be treated to an incredible week-long experience that shows off the city of Green Bay and the state of Wisconsin."

The NFL Draft is the offseason’s premiere event, which will include more than ever to involve the fans that will travel from all over the country to participate. The 2025 NFL Draft will include several days of activities throughout Green Bay and will feature the NFL Draft Experience, a massive free football festival near Lambeau Field, to allow fans of all teams to participate and test their football skills. Fans will also be able to enjoy interactive exhibits and autograph sessions and take pictures with the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Draft Experience will be open all three days of the event.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement, “This is an incredible day for the Packers, Greater Green Bay, and the entire state of Wisconsin as we are excited and honored to be selected to host the 2025 NFL Draft."

"The Packers have a rich and proud history that goes back to the early days of the NFL and are the only community-owned team. That connection to our League's heritage combined with the great passion Packers fans will bring will make the Draft a memorable event for those in attendance and NFL fans watching around the world,” Murphy continued.

"Today's announcement is the result of years of hard work by our Draft committee, particularly Gabrielle Dow from the Packers and Brad Toll from Discover Green Bay. Their tireless efforts in putting together a bid and a plan to host the Draft here, as well as the extraordinary support we've received from our community partners, have created this unprecedented opportunity to showcase our community. We couldn't be more excited to host the 2025 NFL Draft,” Murphy said.

This is the first time that the Green Bay Packers have ever hosted an event like the NFL Draft, but now join 12 other cities on the list to host. The exact details for the event are not set in stone as of yet, but the main portion of the event is expected to take place on the Lambeau Field and Titletown campus, with a variety of venues to be utilized within close proximity to the stadium campus. The NFL Draft is now one of the largest events on the NFL’s calendar. This year, the 2023 NFL Draft in Kansas City saw more than 312,000 fans and more than 54 million viewers during the 3-day event. The 2024 NFL Draft will take place in Detroit next year.
