The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission President, David Griffin, stated during this week’s Greater Cleveland Sports Awards that the city hopes to return the NFL Draft to Cleveland as soon as possible.

Cleveland has demonstrated that it is more than capable of handling some of the biggest events in the country. Big ticket events that went through Northeast Ohio with great reviews included the NFL Draft, MLB and NBA All-Star Games, and the RNC.

With regard to the latter, Cleveland, however, didn’t fully get what it had agreed to. The globe was still dealing with the effects of a pandemic when the draft arrived at the lakeside in 2021. Due to Covid regulations, the event had to be much smaller in scope. The city also had to implement vaccination requirements and fan-only zones, which resulted in a significant decrease in revenue throughout the weekend.
