The NFL recently announced the 2025 NFL Draft will take place in Green Bay, Wisconsin, inside and around iconic Lambeau Field and Titletown, at the NFL Spring League Meeting in Minneapolis, following a review of the proposal by the Fan Engagement & Major Events Advisory Committee and full ownership.

The Green Bay Packers and Discover Green Bay held a media event on May 24 where leaders of the NFL Draft effort shared the proposal process and initial planning for the event. “We’re honored to be entrusted to host one of the NFL’s premier events,” said Brad Toll, president and CEO of Discover Green Bay. “We’re excited to partner with the Green Bay Packers, community leaders and our tourism partners to provide an unparalleled experience for visiting fans. This will be the biggest and most economically significant event in our history.”

The NFL’s most prominent and anticipated offseason event, the draft will bring together fans from all over the country to celebrate. The festivities 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 test their football skills, 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.

The NFL Draft has become one of the biggest and most anticipated sporting events of the year.  Officials estimate that the event could draw as many as 250,000 people to the greater Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. Initial estimates anticipate the total economic impact of the NFL Draft could be $94 million dollars for the state and $20 million in Brown County. The 2023 Draft in Kansas City last month welcomed more than 312,000 fans and had more than 54 million viewers over the course of the three-day event.

While details of the 2025 NFL Draft are still being finalized, 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.
