NFL opens lottery for fans to win tickets to 2017 NFL draft in Philly

Looking to score free tickets to the upcoming NFL draft in Philadelphia? Now is your chance to do so.

On Monday, fans can enter a lottery for a chance to win two tickets to next month's event, which is set to take place on April 27-29 along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The contest will be open until Sunday, March 19.

Interested fans will need to register online on the league's website or a mobile app dedicated solely to the draft. Once the form is completed, users will receive an access pass to participate in the league's free outdoor fan festival. To be eligible, fans must be at least 18 years old.

The NFL is constructing an open-air theater outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art that will host all three days of the NFL draft. Guests will need tickets to enter the venue.

Fans attending the draft festival will be able to watch team selections and receive standby tickets as seats become available.

Lucky winners will be notified around March 22 via email and must RSVP to the event.
