The NFL may have had to skip a trip to Vegas this year because of the city’s COVID-19 shutdown, but just wait: We’re hosting the NFL Draft in 2022.
“We look forward to holding an even bigger and better event than we could have ever imagined this year,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in announcing the 2022 Draft city, home of the new Las Vegas Raiders.
The location plans previously announced for this year will remain in place for 2022. Caesars Entertainment, the Official Casino Sponsor of the NFL, will host the NFL Draft Main Stage which will be constructed next to the CAESARS FORUM Conference Center.
It’ll be “an ONLY VEGAS experience football fans will never forget,” said Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
