Las Vegas will be the fifth different city in as many years to host the NFL Draft.

The glitz and glamour of Las Vegas won out over the history of pro football in Canton and Northeast Ohio.

The NFL announced Las Vegas will host the 2020 NFL Draft. Northeast Ohio’s application to host the draft was a partnership among the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Visit Canton, the Cleveland Browns and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. The NFL will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the league’s founding — which occurred in downtown Canton on Sept. 17, 1920 — during the 2020 season, with plans already being made for a celebration in Canton to coincide.

The announcement of the 2020 draft going to Las Vegas came Wednesday afternoon during the NFL’s annual winter league meeting in Arlington, Texas.

The Hall of Fame issued the following statement:

"Congratulations to Las Vegas and we are certain the city will produce a wonderful draft to be enjoyed by all football fans.

"The Pro Football Hall of Fame looks forward to complementing the draft every year with special content from Canton.

"Meanwhile, the Hall, the city of Canton, and all of Northeast Ohio continue to focus on a spectacular centennial celebration of the founding of the NFL that will take place in 2020."

A group of community leaders, NFL officials and Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village executives are planning the multimillion-dollar Centennial Celebration for the NFL in Canton for Sept. 14-17, 2020.

The Hall, in its statement, said it plans to continue to find ways to enhance "what we do at the Hall to celebrate the draft."

For example, during last year's draft some picks emanated from the Hall of Fame with Hall CEO David Baker and Bernie Kosar announcing a pick.

"We are exploring the possibility of enhancing that as well developing some fan engagement and activities," the Hall said in its statement.

The 2020 NFL Draft will be the first time Las Vegas has hosted the event. It comes a year and a half after the NFL approved the relocation of the Raiders from Oakland to Vegas.

"The NFL Draft is one of the most-anticipated events of the year and we are excited to take it to Las Vegas," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "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."

Denver and Kansas City also had bids in to host 2020 draft.

New York City hosted the NFL Draft from 1965-2014 before the league began moving it to other cities.

Las Vegas marks the fifth different location to play host to the draft in as many years. The 2019 draft is slated to take place in Nashville after the 2018 event was held in Arlington, Texas. The 2017 draft took place in Philadelphia, and Chicago hosted it in 2015 and 2016.

The Browns issued the following statement through a spokesperson:

"We remain committed to hosting an NFL Draft in Northeast Ohio and will continue to work closely with the NFL to identify the ideal opportunity for our fans, our city and the league. There are many teams and cities across the NFL who are capable of creating an exceptional draft experience for fans, including the Titans and Raiders, and we are still hopeful we may ultimately share that honor in the future."
