The National Football League opens entrance for fans who will watch upcoming NFL prospects perform a workout at the scouting combine, which will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, March 2-5. The league will present fans with an opportunity to get closer to the game by watching the bench press, witnessing prospects' performance for scouts, and interacting with NFL legends in press conference and autograph sessions.

"We are excited to deliver to our fans new opportunities to be a part of the Scouting Combine, one of our most-anticipated annual events," NFL senior vice president Peter O'Reilly said in a statement.

"With the new NFL Combine Experience, we have re-imagined the event to provide more access for our fans and to create unique ways for them to join the excitement as well as see the next generation of NFL players in Indianapolis."

Fans can participate in NFL drills at "Combine Corner"

According to NFL.com, the league launched virtual reality attractions, an obstacle course, and youth football clinics at the Convention Center where fans will be allowed to challenge themselves in a number of drills, including the 40-yard dash, the vertical jump, the broad jump, and the 3-cone drill. In addition to those drills, the gauntlet drill will be included for fans to showcase their skills by catching passes thrown all the way to the end zone from JUGS machine.

Tickets can be obtained at its Fan Mobile Pass app via NFL.com for free. Fans who are eager to participate in drills at Combine Corner are required to sign a liability waiver.

Scouting Combine good for business

In 2016, the National Football Scouting organization generated $8 million in revenue. It is projected that the organization will generate more than $10 million next year.

Officials of Visit Indy and NFL worked to launch marketing strategies to draw fans to the event, as well as to generate revenue via merchandise at the event.

The scouting combine, which college football players usually participate in, has boosted the NFL business. Between February and March of 2016, approximately 1,200 fans attended the event, and at least 5,000 fans will be expected to attend next year.
