New York City, NY, United States (4E Sports) – The 2015 NFL draft will take place in Chicago or Los Angeles after New York City and nine other bidders were ruled out, according to league commissioner Roger Goodell.
“We’re focusing solely on Los Angeles and Chicago now,” Goodell told reporters.
Radio City Music Hall, the usual host venue in New York, could not offer available dates in April or May, prompting the change, Goodell said.
The 2015 draft is expected to take place either April 22-25 or April 29-May 2.
League executives have already visited multiple undisclosed locations in both Chicago and Los Angeles.
Goodell said they will decide on the venue in late summer.
