NFL will allow fans in to watch Scouting Combine this year
Last month, the NFL opened the doors of Lucas Oil Stadium for fans to come view the mayhem on Media Day at Super Bowl XLVI.
This month, the league will open the doors at Lucas Oil Stadium to select fans for the Scouting Combine, that begins Wednesday in Indianapolis.
According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, 250 fans will be given the opportunity to watch quarterbacks and wide receivers work out in the morning on Sunday, Feb. 26.
"They've been asking us to put fans in the stands for the last four years," Jeff Foster, the director of National Football Scouting, told Chappell. "Obviously this is important to the NFL, so we're excited to partner with them on the opportunity."
In recent years, the league has allowed a small group of media to view certain workouts at the combine. The league, though, shows exhaustive coverage of the event on the NFL Network.
Tickets to Media Day cost $25 each. Tickets to the Scouting Combine will be free. Fans can sign up to be selected here.
