Preparing to host the NFL Draft in 2025 starts with small steps. For example, the city of Green Bay wants to reactivate the Lombardi Neighborhood Association across Lombardi Avenue from Lambeau Field.
“It’s gone dormant, so we really don’t have a board (of directors) there,” said Toni Loch, neighborhood support specialist in the Community & Economic Development Department. “We really want to get Lombardi kind of prepared for what’s going to happen when the draft does come, and put our best face forward.”
Green Bay will host the draft on April 24-26, 2025. Draft organizers expect attendance of 250,000 over the three days, in addition to crews for the league, networks and vendors who will come to town up to three weeks before the event. Green Bay was named host of the 2025 draft in May, after seven years of pursuing the opportunity.
