Earlier this year, the Kansas City Sports Commission announced that KC would be hosting the 2023 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 27-Saturday, April 29. As the date approaches, KC is ironing out the plans for this highly anticipated football tradition.

A preliminary site plan shows the focus on Union Station and the National World War I Museum and Memorial. A main stage will be located in front of Union Station, and a Draft Experience will be set up on the lawns near the Liberty Memorial.

The NFL Draft Experience will allow fans of all teams to test their football skills, enjoy interactive exhibits and autograph sessions, and take pictures with the Vince Lombardi Trophy (back home in KC where it belongs).

It is estimated that the event preparation and set-up will take one month. Stay updated on full schedules + involvement opportunities.
