The NFL Combine is one of the marquee events of the pre-draft process. Scouts, coaches, and front office executives all descend on Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to get a first-hand look at the prospects hoping to hear their names called in the NFL draft. But can fans attend the hallmark event, or must they simply observe from afar?
Can Fans Attend the NFL Combine?
Yes, fans can attend the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. The NFL allows fans to register to attend the Combine. And the best part? Registering is free!
Over a four-day period, fans are treated to a series of interactive games and activities, including a digital 40-yard dash, bench press photo op, vertical jump, and Combine obstacle course. Fans also get up-close looks at the Super Bowl 56 rings, Lombardi Trophy, AFC & NFC Championship trophies, Pepsi Helmets, and the NFL draft set.
