The NFL Draft is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway this year in a 3,000 seat temporary theatre. Are you interested in getting tickets for the once in a lifetime event? Well good luck because everyone and their mother are with you.

As reported by Philly.com, 200,000 people are expected to embark on the Parkway from Thursday to Saturday. Also, Bleeding Green Nation broke it down two weeks ago about the chance you have:

Last year about 80,000 people entered and about 5,000 tickets were awarded (meaning 2,500 winners were selected.) That put your odds of winning at about 1 in 32, or 3.125%.

Those 5,000 tickets from the lottery were spread out like this:

1,500 Day 1/Round 1 tickets to the main theater (750 winners)

500 Day 1/Round 1 tickets to the square/plaza area (250 winners)

1,500 Day 2/Rounds 2-3 tickets to the main theater (750 winners)

500 Day 2/Rounds 2-3 tickets to the square/plaza area (250 winners)

1,000 Day 3/Rounds 4-7 tickets to the square/plaza area only, as the late rounds did not take place in the main theater (500 winners)

So, if you were hoping to go to Round 1/Day 1 of the draft, your odds were 1 in 80, or 1.25%.

You can register for tickets to Day 1 here. Good luck and if you win might I suggest taking your favorite underground sports blogger.
