The annual NFL Draft offers an exciting time for die-hard fans around the country and Kansas City, Mo., is no exception.
And so with 16 days to go until NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announces the first pick, the Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday a special draft day event on April 26 at the 810 Zone in Leawood, Kan.
“The draft is always a special time of year for our fans as we get to welcome new members to the Chiefs family,” team president Mark Donovan said in the news release. “We are excited to work with our partners at 810 to organize this event and create a fun gathering place for all fans.”
The event is open to the public and scheduled to kick off at 5 p.m. CT, two hours ahead of the actual draft starting time at 7 p.m.
The Chiefs, who currently own the 11th pick overall, will be represented by a current player, team ambassadors and cheerleaders. The KC Wolf is also scheduled to make an appearance, according to the news release.
Additionally, attending fans will be treated to autographs and select fans may win prizes.
A separate draft day party exclusive to season ticket holders will be held at the Arrowhead indoor facility on the same night.
