NFL Combine opens to fans

February 24, 2012

The National Football League for the first time is allowing a limited number of fans to attend NFL Combine events. The annual league scouting event, which has been held in Indianapolis for 25 years, allows teams to evaluate prospects through interviews, tests and workouts. The NFL received thousands of applications from fans and selected 250 of them to attend Sunday activities at Lucas Oil Stadium. Tourism officials estimated the city will see $6 million in visitor spending as a result of the Feb. 22-28 event.
