We’re less than a month removed from the 2023 NFL Draft, but sights are already turning to the future. This most recent event was held in the home of the Super Bowl champion Chiefs as Kansas City hosted for the first time ever.

The league has made a push to expand the draft’s footprint over the last decade or so after seeing New York City host the event every year between 1965 and 2014. Since, we’ve seen the selection process held in major US destinations, including Las Vegas, Chicago, and Nashville.

Next year, the league heads to Detroit, and it looks like another NFC North city has now nabbed the honor of 2025 host site.

Green Bay was announced as the newest host, which makes sense given the Packers’ iconic history in the NFL. The franchise owns the most regular season wins in the history of the league while also having tallied four Lombardi trophies in five tries.

The NFL made the announcement through a statement on its website.

The NFL Draft is headed to Titletown. The league announced Monday at the Spring League Meeting that the 2025 NFL Draft has been awarded to Green Bay, Wisconsin, home of the Packers and legendary Lambeau Field.

Green Bay becomes the ninth different city since 2015 to host the offseason event. Commissioner Roger Goodell commented on the news Monday.

“The draft has become our biggest offseason event hosted in different cities and spectacular locations across the country, and we are excited to work with the Packers and Discover Green Bay to bring the 2025 NFL Draft to Green Bay and iconic Lambeau field,” Goodell said. “With the help of numerous local partners on the ground, our prospects and fans will be treated to an incredible week-long experience that shows off the city of Green Bay and the state of Wisconsin.”

While Goodell seems excited about the newest host, fans online don’t share that same enthusiasm. Many raced to social media to post their reactions on the announcement.

Many were concerned about the temperatures, with this fan writing, “It’ll probably be like 30 degrees on draft night.”

Another person joked, “And the first pick is Frosty the Snowman.”

For reference, Green Bay’s weather on draft weekend this year saw highs in the mid-50s and lows in the low-40s, but a 30-degree night in late April wouldn’t be out of the question.

Others are more worried about the city’s accommodations.

All jokes aside, it is nice to see the NFL Draft heading to one of the most iconic venues in football. Mark your calendars if you plan on seeing the action in person.
