The National Football League will partner with the highly popular Clubhouse app to deliver 2021 NFL Draft programming. Sorry, Android users, Clubhouse is exclusive for iPhone owners.
Oprah, Drake, Ashton Kutcher, Kevin Hart, other influencers, and sports figures discuss topics and issues with fans on the invite-only Clubhouse app. The NFL will leverage Clubhouse to create draft-related rooms starting Monday, April 26.
According to the NFL, "with Clubhouse's highly interactive audio-based social platform, fans can drop in on the NFL's rooms to follow the picks live as they're announced and listen in on discussions featuring key NFL figures—from athletes and coaches to network personalities. Fans also have the opportunity to join the conversation and be invited on stage by moderators to ask questions or share their reactions to the Draft." NFL.com
