HOUSTON Texans fans, who are in need of a football fix, are invited to come out to the 2014 Houston Texans Draft Party presented by Coors Light on May 8 at Reliant Stadium.

The Draft Party begins at 5 p.m. and the 2014 NFL Draft begins at 7 p.m.

The Draft Party is free but requires a ticket. On Tuesday, Texans season ticket holders and Priority Wait List members will have an exclusive opportunity to download tickets, with a limit of four tickets per account. Members of the Texans official fan clubs will have the opportunity to download tickets beginning Wednesday at 10 a.m.

Tickets will become available to the general public on Thursday at 9 a.m. Although the event is expected to sell out once again this year, the team will reserve a limited number of tickets for Thursday s general public release in order to ensure that all Texans fans have the opportunity to attend.

Parking at the Draft Party is also free and will be located in the Blue Lot on the south end of Reliant Stadium.

NFL Network s draft coverage will be shown on the HD televisions throughout the 100 Level Concourse and Texans Radio on SportsRadio 610 will broadcast live from the Party Deck, with commentary and analysis from The Voice of the Texans, Marc Vandermeer, and a number of special guests. When the Texans make their first-round pick, fans at the Draft Party will hear from the player first as part of Texans Radio s live broadcast.

Houston Texans players and Texans Ambassadors will be on hand to sign autographs throughout the evening. Texans fans can also get their first glimpse of the 2014 Houston Texans Cheerleaders when the squad makes its debut performance at the event.

Young fans can play in the TORO s Kids Club Kids Zone presented by Kroger, which will feature interactive games, a balloon artist and appearances by TORO and Deep Steel Thunder. Fans can also take photos in Memory Alley located at sections 120 and 122.
