Chiefs’ Bid To Change Overtime Rules Unsuccessful, Will Not Pass This Season

The 86th NFL Draft will bring fans together for free downtown celebrations around First Energy Stadium, including at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as on the shore of Lake Erie. "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".

The NFL awarded its annual draft to Kansas City for 2023.

The 2020 draft had already been awarded to Las Vegas.

Ultimately the expectation is that at some point in the next several years, Kansas City will have an opportunity to host the National Football League draft. Hundreds of thousands of fans jammed the area in November 2015 for the Royals' World Series victory party.

The NFL made a big change in 2015 when they chose to move the NFL Draft from Radio City Music Hall in New York City to a rotational schedule.

The Chiefs and their fans were up in arms that league MVP Patrick Mahomes didn't get a chance to possess the ball, conveniently forgetting that football is a team sport and Kansas City's defense allowed three third-and-long conversions.

The NFL Draft has become one of the biggest and most-anticipated sporting events of the year. In 2006, it moved to Radio City Music Hall in NY.

"Today's announcement would not have been possible without the tireless work of Kathy Nelson, the Kansas City Sports Commission and the Kansas City civic community", Hunt continued. "Hometown pride runs deep in the Midwest".

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. The NFL Draft achieved a combined 3.9 HH rating and average of 6.1 million viewers across the broadest distribution including NFL Network, ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, as well as NFL and ESPN digital and social properties.

Also on the agenda: the site of 2021 and '23 drafts.
