Here’s Your First Look at the NFL Draft Stage in Detroit
The sting is still there from the Detroit Lions not making it to the Super Bowl this year, but it’s okay. We had a great season, and maybe we’ll get there next year. I’m going to call it right now, actually. Well before then, we have some major football action coming to Detroit in the form of the NFL Draft. Now, the NFL has shared a first look at the NFL Draft stage in the Motor City, and it’s glorious.
The NFL Draft will take place from April 25-27, 2024, in downtown Detroit. It will be staged around Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza, which should be a beautiful spot for it. Also, officials have announced that the NFL Draft Experience. That’s the NFL’s interactive football theme park, will be open for all three days of the draft. Attendees will be able to check out interactive exhibits, autograph sessions and take pictures with the famed Vince Lombardi Trophy. What’s really cool is that the community events surrounding the draft in Detroit will be free to the public. People are really going to back that place. This is actually perfect timing to have the draft in Detroit, right after our incredible season. We deserve it.
“The 2024 NFL Draft will highlight all that makes Detroit and Southeast Michigan a great place to live, work, invest, and visit,” Visit Detroit President/CEO and draft co-chair Claude Molinari said in a statement. “Visit Detroit is proud to partner with Detroit Metropolitan Airport, local hotels, restaurants, and shops to create a best-in-class hospitality experience for visitors from touchdown to takeoff.”
Check out the first look photos of the NFL Draft in Detroit below. They look super cool and definitely have me counting down the days until April. On a different note, the 2027 NCAA Men’s Final Four will take place at Ford Field, so that’s something else to anticipate.
