(FOX NEWS) – The NFL announced Monday it will no longer hold public draft events amid the coronavirus outbreak nationwide and across the globe.
The draft was set to be held in Las Vegas from April 23 to April 25. The NFL said the selection process will still take place and was exploring other options for how the process will be conducted.
“This decision reflects our foremost priority – the health and safety of all fans and citizens,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
“While this outcome is disappointing both to the NFL and to the Las Vegas community, we look forward to partnering with the Raiders, the City of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for a future NFL Draft as well as evaluating opportunities for other major NFL events in Las Vegas in the future, including the Super Bowl.”
