KANSAS CITY, mo — The NFL Draft will not come to Kansas City in 2020.

On Wednesday, the league announced it will hold the event in Las Vegas. The league said it made the decision after a comprehensive evaluation process of the plans submitted by several cities.

Kansas City was one of several cities that bid to host the 2019 and 2020 NFL Draft. Earlier this year, the league announced it would hold the 2019 event in Nashville.

"The NFL Draft is one of the most-anticipated events of the year and we are excited to take it to Las Vegas," said Commissioner Roger Goodell in a release. "We look forward to working with the Raiders, Las Vegas officials and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to create an unforgettable week-long celebration of football for our fans, the incoming prospects and partners."
