Commissioner Roger Goodell announced during the 2020 NFL Draft that the league will commit to hosting the 87th annual NFL Draft in 2022 in Las Vegas. This comes after the 2020 public Draft events in Las Vegas were cancelled due to COVID-19.
"I'm pleased to announce that Las Vegas will host the 2022 NFL Draft, where we look forward to holding an even bigger and better event than we could have ever imagined this year," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, "Congratulations to Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the Raiders organization and Raider Nation."
The location plans previously announced for the 2020 Draft will remain in place for 2022 and additional elements for the 2022 Draft will be revealed at a later date.
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. Caesars Forum will also be host to Selection Square.
Adjacent to the NFL Draft Main Stage, the NFL Draft Experience will be a free, three-day football festival featuring interactive games, the Vince Lombardi Trophy, autograph sessions with NFL players and Legends, giveaways and the NFL Shop presented by Visa.
The previously announced plans for the Draft Red Carpet remain in place for 2022, with prospects ferried to and from the stage via boat on the famed Fountains of Bellagio.
