NFL preparation inside the show: Las Vegas has one of the first league games in the league

NEWNow you can listen to Fox News posts!

The 2022 NFL Draft kicks off Thursday night in Las Vegas, and staff preparing for the event have created a stage and venue that will represent the city well.

The reorganization is set to take place in Las Vegas in 2020, but the coronavirus has forced the transformation into a live, live-action event. After stopping in Cleveland last season, preparations returned to what should have been two years ago.

Since April 1, staff have been making notes near the Caesars Forum and behind the High Roller outside Linq. The theater is more than 105 feet wide and over 220 feet tall with a video screen and more than 1 million LCD pixels, according to NFL Senior Director of Event Operations Eric Finkelstein, who spoke to reporters Tuesday.

He also said that there are 1,500 paid customer seats that require special information, but fans should be able to go to the NFL Draft Experience in the parking lot near the nearest free entrance and be able to pass through the venue to see.

“Of course we still have a lot to do, and we will be working hard in all areas until the Commissioner (Roger Goodell) gets on the field and puts the first team on the clock,” Finkelstein said. “We would not be happy to be here in Las Vegas. Clark County has welcomed us with open arms. I know it has been many years. We were planning to be here in 2020, but we are happy in 2022. That we have finally come to make this alive. We cannot wait Thursday night.”

NFL Events Director Heather Nanberg said there will be more awareness of the prospective, who will enter through the Caesars Forum on the court. Prospective participants will be in a comfortable setting before hearing their names being called.


Several fans will also be able to view the recordings from “Inner Circle.” Nanberg said each 32-member team invites 20 of their favorite fans to stay in the area.

One of the most exciting things fans will see as they enter the arena or pass through Las Vegas is to hear the NFL add to its preparations this year. At the sides of the stadium are cards with the team logo. The section is purple and zero in 2022 is like a diamond.

“I think that’s the most important thing in planning. The amazing thing about this event is – since we walked down the street from Chicago in 2015 – and that we really want to take on the character of where we are,” Finkelstein said. . “It’s not a cookie cutter that you can just throw in any place and it should be like this, this size, this shape, this feeling. , relying on special items.

‘ Vegas. It’s something we always try to find when we put it together, which really makes it fun. “

Nanberg said the idea is to include as many fans as possible, which is why having fans walking around the event is important.


“As the process has changed, it has become less and less crowded and it’s more like a concert. People start coming out and going out. It’s more fun and party than ever. As before. The day we were in the theater,” Nanberg said. “Obviously we’ve been using the concept but we’ve come to a point where it’s bigger than that.”

NFL fans will be able to see their team roll the ballots from Thursday night at 8 pm ET, the first round kicks off. The second and third rounds will begin at 7pm ET on Friday. The fourth to seventh round starts at noon ET Saturday.
