The New Orleans Saints offered season ticket holders an opportunity to win a trip for two to the 2015 NFL draft via a contest on the team's official app. Chris Chico, a Georgia resident, is the winner.
The trip includes a three-night trip for Chico and his stepson (Chico's selected guest) to Chicago to attend the 2015 NFL draft. Chico will walk the gold carpet to kick off the draft with the official New Era Draft Cap. He will also hand off the Saints first round draft pick jersey to Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Chico is originally from the Philippines and has been a loyal Saints fan since becoming a season ticket holder in 2006. He is an avid fan of the band U2 and could not pass up seeing the band before the Saints game that re-opened the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2006. Since single game tickets were not available, Chico decided to buy season tickets and has continued to buy season tickets ever since his first purchase.
"I've been to many stadiums around the country and world, but there is something unique about the bond of Saints fans," Chico said this week. "I'm looking forward to meeting some NFL legends and current players, as well as observing the inner-workings of the draft from backstage."
