The NFL is welcoming fans and collectors to its annual scouting combine in Indianapolis next month.
For the first time, the NFL will offer free and interactive fan experiences, including autographs from former players, access to Combine drills and press conferencesand virtual reality attractions, to the 2017 edition of the annual event which serves as a showcase for college players hoping to be drafted. General managers and other staff members from each NFL team will be in attendance at the Combine itself, which is held inside nearby Lucas Oil Stadium.
The NFL Combine Experience, which will take place at the Indiana Convention Center March 2-5, will include four days of autograph sessions, as long as you sign up for free tickets and can go during the time period you’re assigned. So far there’s no word on which former players will be at the autograph stage.
You can register for the free NFL Combine Experience at NFL.com/CombineFMP. Tickets are required for entry and correspond to a particular day and time. NFL Combine Experience hours are:
- Thursday, March 2: 12 Noon to 8 PM ET;
- Friday, March 3: 12 Noon to 8 PM ET;
- Saturday, March 4: 10 AM to 8 PM ET; and
- Sunday, March 5: 10 AM To 5 PM ET.
Fans will also have a chance to get their photo taken with the Lombardi Trophy and see a collection of all 50 Super Bowl rings that have been created to date.
In addition, a select group of fans will be able to watch the 2017 NFL Combine live from inside Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 3-5). Registration is available via Fan Mobile Pass. Those who check-in at events with those passes will have a chance to win autographed memorabilia, NFL game tickets, and other items.
