Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, Destination Cleveland and the Cleveland Browns are proud to announce the 86th NFL Draft will be held on April 29-May 1, 2021 in Downtown Cleveland.
The 86th NFL Draft will bring fans together for free celebrations at iconic downtown locations around FirstEnergy Stadium including the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as well as on the shore of Lake Erie.
Cleveland is a football town. As the one of the biggest and most-anticipated sporting events of the year, we remain hopeful that the 2021 NFL Draft will bring football fans from across the world to our city that is known for its passionate residents, rock ‘n roll and knows a thing or two about how to throw a party.
As long as it is safe for all participants & spectators, the NFL Draft and the free NFL Draft Experience, a free football festival where fans from all teams can enjoy interactive exhibits, autographs sessions and more, will be held in-person in 2021.
We will continue to follow the guidance of our state and local health agencies in regard to hosting major sporting events all the way up to the scheduled draft dates. Rest assured, our team is working diligently to provide the most up-to-date information on activities and community events happening during the 2021 NFL Draft in Cleveland.
More information will be made available as this event approaches.
