Jets Expand Draft Week Fan Activities

The New York Jets will expand its Draft Week to feature three events surrounding the 2013 NFL Draft.

The team will host a Draft Party exclusively for Season Ticket Holders, which will be held at MetLife Stadium on Thursday, April 25. In addition to watching the first round of the Draft live on the four in-stadium videoboards, attendees will enjoy autographs from Jets players – those scheduled to appear include Quinton Coples, Kenrick Ellis, Stephen Hill, Muhammad Wilkerson and Kyle Wilson. The players in attendance will be featured on Jets Talk LIVE hosted by Team Insider Eric Allen along with special guest Bob Wischusen live only on newyorkjets.com from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
For the first time ever, Season Ticket Holders will have the opportunity to tour the Jets home locker room. Also, the night will feature on-field activities and appearances by the Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders. One lucky Season Ticket Holder in attendance will be randomly selected to have the special honor of announcing the team’s fourth-round draft pick live at Radio City Music Hall on Saturday, April 27. Admission to the party at MetLife Stadium is free for Season Ticket Holders but tickets, which can be downloaded at My Jets Account, are required for entrance.
In addition to the Season Ticket Holder party, the team is partnering with local Houlihan’s establishments throughout the NJ and NY area to encourage Jets fans to meet up with other fans to experience Round One of the Draft on Thursday night. The Hasbrouck Heights location in NJ (5 Route 17 South) and Farmingdale location on Long Island (923 Broad Hollow Road) will serve as the featured restaurants and will have appearances by Jets Alumni and Flight Crew Cheerleaders beginning at 6:00 p.m. Also, the restaurants will show Jets Talk LIVE at 6:30 p.m. Additional locations can be found on newyorkjets.com.
