The draft will take place over three days: Round 1 starts Thursday at 8 p.m. ET, Round 2-3 are Friday at 7 p.m. ET and Rounds 4-7 are Saturday at noon ET.  Fans are also being asked to donate to COVID-19 relief efforts as part of a “Draftathon.”

Jennifer Hudson and OneRepublic are also performing on the event: J-Hud sings on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET, while OneRepublic will appear on Saturday at noon ET.

The 2020 Draft was originally supposed to take place in Paradise, Nevada just outside of Las Vegas. It will now follow shelter-in-place guidelines and occur via video conferencing from players’ respective homes.
