Jet Nation loves a good draft day party. The only problem this year is that the NFL spread the NFL draft over 3 days (April 22 – 24). That means that round one is taking place on a Thursday night. A great night to go out partying if you are in college. Not so much for anyone who calls Corporate America home on Friday morning.
So what are your options if you want to go out and watch the draft? The New York Jets are inviting fans to watch it live from the Great Hall in the new stadium.
The Jets announced today that they are inviting fans to attend their annual Draft Party being held for the first time in New Jets Stadium. Green & White fans can watch the 2010 NFL Draft and experience the new stadium at a draft-night party on Thursday, April 22. This party is the first Jets event that will be open to the public at the team’s new home.
The party, brought to you by the New York Daily News, Pepsi, Toyota and Verizon, begins at 6 p.m. and will be held in the Great Hall of the new stadium. The Great Hall is located at the 50-yard-line entrance to the new building. In the Great Hall on gamedays, fans will be able to see out onto the field, shop at the team store, and experience a larger-than-life collage of images celebrating the Jets greats past and present.
A free ticket is required for each fan to gain admission to the party. Tickets can be obtained here. All tickets must be secured in advance of the event and no tickets will be distributed at the stadium on April 22. There is a limit of four tickets per person for this party. Parking lots will open one hour prior to the event. Ticketed fans will receive an exclusive 2010 Jets Draft Party T-shirt upon arrival that evening.
The 2010 Jets Draft Party gives fans the opportunity to see the field, watch the draft with fellow Jets fans, pick up giveaways and have the chance to win a variety of prizes. Players will participate in a question-and-answer session and Jets Flight Crew cheerleaders will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans. Jets Shop will be selling all the latest team gear, including the 2010 Draft Cap.

Please be advised that these tickets are free but the Jets require that you provide contact information and a valid email address. Why? Our thought is so that they can contact you about season tickets in the new stadium. Not a bad deal though, free tickets, check out the new stadium and hang out with Jets tickets.
