REPORT: This Year’s NFL Draft May Be Held Without Fans

Luckily for football fans, there’s a good chance the Coronavirus will be in the rearview mirror by the time the NFL season rolls around. That could be attributed to the precautions taken by the NCAA and NBA which as of last night included disallowing fans to attend conference tournaments and suspending the NBA season entirely.

The bad news for football fans is that the 2020 NFL Draft isn’t too far off, and according to a Las Vegas Twitter account, a Ceasers Palace staffer has said that the league will cancel all fan events the week and weekend of the event the and is discussing ways to limit fans at the actual draft itself.

Of course the source has not be verified but it’s likely if the virus continues to spread, it would only make sense.

The 2020 NFL Draft is scheduled to be held April 23-25 at the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.
