NFL Draft heading to historic, small-market Green Bay in 2025

May 23, 2023

The only question with giving Green Bay the 2025 NFL Draft is where to put all the people.

The NFL's smallest market by a mile will host the NFL's marquee offseason event, which was attended by 300,000 fans last month in Kansas City. At the NFL owners meetings this week, Green Bay was awarded the 2025 NFL Draft.

It's a great historic setting, the smallest city in the United States that still has a major professional sports franchise. It will be a great celebration of the history of the game. The Green Bay Packers have been around since 1919, one year before the NFL was even formed.

It's just a surprising choice because of the market size.

Green Bay has a population of less than 110,000 people. If it gets near the same attendance that Kansas City got for this year's draft, that's about three times the population of the entire city.
