The Green Bay Packers are set to welcome NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to Training Camp on Monday, Aug. 14, at 9:30 a.m. The event has been moved indoors to the Johnsonville Tailgate Village due to forecasted weather. The public is invited to attend the event.
His visit will include remarks recognizing the community's effort to be selected to host the 2025 NFL Draft. He will address fans inside the Johnsonville Tailgate Village on the east side of Lambeau Field near the Oneida Nation Gate, before attending practice.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will welcome Goodell and speak about the Draft on behalf of the Packers and the local organizing and host committees that bid for the event. Other local leaders will be present as well to speak about the Draft's impact on Greater Green Bay, the region and Wisconsin.
The 2025 NFL Draft will bring together fans from all over the nation, as well as several foreign countries, to celebrate football and the selection of college players by NFL teams. The festivities will include several days of activities throughout Green Bay and will feature the NFL Draft Experience – a massive free football festival – near Lambeau Field to allow fans of all teams to participate and test their football skills, enjoy interactive exhibits and autograph sessions, and take pictures with the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Draft Experience will be open all three days of the event.
While details of the 2025 NFL Draft are still being finalized, the main portion of the event is expected to take place on the Lambeau Field and Titletown campus, with a variety of venues to be utilized within close proximity.
The NFL Draft has become one of the biggest and most-anticipated sporting events of the year. The 2023 Draft in Kansas City in April welcomed more than 312,000 fans and had more than 54 million viewers over the course of the three-day event.
