  • The NFL draft is headed to Cleveland and Kansas City

The event will bring together fans to celebrate one of the most-anticipated sports events of the year.

Cleveland was a finalist in 2019 or 2020, but Nashville and Las Vegas were awarded the the immensely popular event instead. On Wednesday, the National Football League and city of Nashville announced that the April draft had generated $133 million in direct spending, setting a record for the draft.

The Browns and the city of Cleveland have never hosted an NFL Draft.

The NFL awarded its annual draft to Kansas City for 2023. Representatives from the City of Kansas City, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Kansas City Sports Commission will be available to answer questions.

As part of the event, the NFL Draft Experience - a massive free football festival - will allow fans of all teams to participate and test their football skills, enjoy interactive exhibits and autograph sessions, and take pictures with the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

A location for the 2022 draft has not yet been announced.

If the Cleveland/Canton bid is passed over for either of those options, it may be a few more years before they know if they'll be selected as a host city again.

"We look forward to collaborating with the Cleveland Browns, the City of Cleveland, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission and Destination Cleveland to celebrate the achievements of the next generation of players and create a memorable fan experience".

In April, some 600,000 attended the three-day draft in Nashville, Tennessee, and although economic impact figures haven't been announced, the drafts in Dallas (2018) and Philadelphia (2017) have been reported in the $100 million range.

When the Chiefs visit the Pats for a regular-season rematch this December, they're either going to need to make a defensive stand or win the coin toss because no rule change is coming to guarantee them a chance to win in overtime.

Television coverage also has swelled.

"That would be huge for the city", Ward said, just prior to the announcement. "Hometown pride runs deep in the Midwest".

In the past decade, Kansas City has been the site of two World Series, Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, the MLS All-Star Game and championship game, NFL playoff games and several NCAA basketball tournaments.
