Free events, community activities to reach thousands of Chicagoland residents
The impact of the NFL Draft will extend far beyond the Auditorium Theatre through the NFL’s many community events planned for Draft week throughout Chicago. From hospitals to schools, flag football to family Heads Up Football® clinics, thousands of local children and their families will experience the excitement of Draft through a series of free events.
“Chicago is thrilled to welcome the 2015 NFL Draft to America’s heartland in just a few weeks,” said Chicago Mayor RAHM EMANUEL. “NFL fans from across the country will travel here or tune in as the future of their team is decided in Chicago, and residents will have a number of opportunities to participate in draft activities. This marquee event represents both a tremendous economic opportunity and a wonderful promotional opportunity for Chicago.”
