Soccer fans around the world are looking to Las Vegas!
The 87th draft in NFL history takes place in the gaming metropolis. Here the teams can select the greatest talents. The worst teams from the past come first. This is to promote balance in the league.
The first round will be drawn on Thursday (in Germany due to the time difference on Friday night). Round 2 and 3 Friday. So on Saturday, four to seven rounds.
Mega location in the water
The stage is set in the water by Bellagio’s giant fountain. Right next to Caesars Palace, where is another scene. A small bridge with a red carpet will lead to the fountain which the 21 athletes will cross.
These 21 college players were invited to Las Vegas because the expectation is that they will be selected first.
The rumors that the players will be taken to the stage in boats are not true! This was planned for 2020, when the draft was largely due to take place due to the corona pandemic.
Over half a million NFL fans are expected on the famous Strip, the boulevard with the largest hotels and casinos. The play has been under preparation there for weeks. However, to the frustration of tourists, as the world-famous water show in front of Bellagio was canceled as a result.
The NFL Draft was held in New York for 50 years until 2015. Since then, the NFL has toured all over the country. The draft will then take place in Kansas City next year and in Detroit in 2024.

After draft day 1, there is a concert with the rock band Weezer. After day 2, the Ice Cube will perform. After day 3 Marshmello.
Performers include artists from the Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soleil and super magician Criss Angel – all big stars in Las Vegas.
300 drones should have a great show over the fountain by representing all 32 teams. Exactly how – it’s still a secret!

A German is an insider tip
Marcel Dabo (22) from ELF-Team Stuttgart Surge is traded in the American media as a “sleeper”, ie an insider tip. The defensive back is part of the NFL’s International Pathway Program (IPP), which features the most talented talent in their country. The Indianapolis Colts have already invited him for talks.
