This year’s National Draft Day in Las Vegas took place on Saturday, August 25th and Las Vegas played host to many leagues of fantasy drafters. Draft Party USA’s featured event was the VIP Draft at TopGolf Las Vegas. True fantasy draft aficionados enjoyed a premium drafting experience in a private event room with a festive atmosphere. The event featured a gourmet buffet, call brand open bar and Vegas style entertainment. National Draft Day was emceed by The Schmo, Draft Party USA’s digital media sports correspondent, known for delivering weird and funny sports, one interview at a time. Broadcasting live was Eat.Sleep.Fantasy. – Top Fantasy Football Podcast currently available on iTunes. Model hostesses from the UNLV Cheer squad were in full uniform as dedicated draft board attendants, actually placing the individual player stickers on the draft boards for each league throughout the event. During the pre-draft reception, drafters were treated to buckets of beer while some of the leagues pre-labeled their draft boards with keepers or auction info. The drafters were treated to strolling magic from an original Las Vegas lounge magician and some whacked a few golf balls getting pumped for the draft to begin; one of the leagues even selected their draft order with a longest drive competition. The real competition heated up when the drafting began, but the open bar and party atmosphere made this National Draft Day an event to remember.
The first Sin City VIP fantasy football draft party was held in 2012 in the Aria Race & Sports Book as impromptu event for a group of high-end casino players. Unfortunately, our VIP draft party drew the attention and concern of casino gaming regulators, making it the last fantasy football draft to be held inside a sports book on the Vegas Strip. Since that time we have featured many locations including the finest sports bars, private rooms, pool parties, gentlemen’s clubs and hotel suites on the Las Vegas Strip. With each passing fantasy draft season the bar is raised, as drafters from all over America plan their destination draft party in Las Vegas with expectations of luxury draft amenities and Vegas style entertainment. To keep pace with these rising expectations, Sin City VIP launched a sports entertainment marketing brand in 2014, Draft Party USA, specializing in fantasy draft parties and VIP sports experience packages.
Early on, Draft Party USA identified the most popular draft date of the season was the Saturday before Labor Day Weekend. This is the sweet spot for fantasy football drafters as it coincides with Week 3 of the NFL Preseason, a point where most personnel decisions have already been determined and early injuries from training camp are no longer a high risk for starters. This is also a great weekend to travel to Vegas for the lower rates on flights, hotel and entertainment as compared to the following weekend with holiday rates and larger crowds around the Vegas Strip. So became National Draft Day by Draft Party USA, the Saturday before Labor Day Weekend and the consensus best day to host a fantasy draft party in Las Vegas.
Topgolf Las Vegas is a state-of-the-art sports entertainment complex and the perfect place for the fantasy football draft party event of the season! This was It was an absolute pleasure to host these VIP drafters who traveled to Las Vegas to host their annual special event, the great new American sports tradition, the live, fantasy football draft party!
