NFL Draft Picks Las Vegas in 2022

The 2022 comeback will be ‘even bigger and better,’ Commissioner Goodell promises

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

Media and Sports Partnerships

In preparation for the NFL, both ESPN and Bleacher Report have joined forces with Caesars Entertainment to bring sports betting news to fans around the world. ESPN has opened a production studio at The LINQ Hotel + Experience, while Bleacher Report is a year into a partnership with Caesars Palace where they operate a studio in the resort’s sports book producing a variety of betting and basketball content for TBS and TNT. “The sports betting landscape has changed, and fans are coming to us for this kind of information more than ever before,” said Mike Morrison, ESPN’s vice president of business development. “We are poised to expand our coverage in a big way with the best and most relevant content possible.”
