The 84th NFL Draft will take place on April 25-27, 2019, in Nashville. The three-day Draft will incorporate iconic landmarks with fan events across Music City.
"Following an exciting and successful event in Dallas, we're thrilled to take the NFL Draft to Nashville. The city has a passionate fan base and offers iconic locations that will enable us to expand the Draft in unique ways," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Part of the event includes the NFL Draft Experience Presented by Oikos Triple Zero®. The massive, free football festival will allow fans to test their football skills, participate in interactive exhibits and autograph sessions, and take pictures with the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
"Nashville is honored to host the 2019 NFL Draft. We are prepared to deliver a unique Music City experience and an NFL-caliber event," said Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp President and CEO Butch Spyridon.
The NFL Draft is one of the biggest and most-anticipated sporting events of the year. The 2018 event set a record for the highest-rated and most-watched Draft ever, attracting more than 45 million total viewers over three days of coverage. It also was the first Draft to air in its entirety on broadcast television. Tremendous fan engagement across social platforms made the 2018 NFL Draft the second-most talked about sports event of the year behind only Super Bowl LII.
