Clubhouse has established its first-ever, large-scale sports partnership and it comes just in time for the 2021 NFL Draft. The audio-focused app has teamed up with NFL to develop week-long programming centered around this year’s draft. This content will include rooms dedicated to player assessments, mock drafts and more. There will also be a room dedicated to conversations between former University of Alabama players.
Clubhouse has found major success within the last year. Over the last twelve months, stars like Jay-Z, Drake and Kevin Hart have all hopped on the app. Overall, the app has earned nearly 10 million downloads and has inspired Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to develop similar features. Recently, reports have suggested that Twitter has inquired about acquiring Clubhouse for approximately $4 billion.
While Clubhouse has amassed praise from the tech world, there is still new ground for the app to cover. Most notably, the app is available only to those who have an invitation. Furthermore, it is only available to iPhone users at this time. There is no word as to when it will be available to the public.
The NFL becomes the first major sports league to partner with Clubhouse on official programming.
The league announced it is partnering with the audio-only social platform to produce exclusive programming throughout the week of the 2021 Draft.
