(Reuters) - Delivery drones, virtual art exhibits and U.S. football games will headline Verizon Communications Inc's announcements on Monday at the annual consumer electronics tradeshow CES as it shows off 5G technology partnerships with the National Football League (NFL), the Metropolitan Museum of Art and UPS.

The U.S. wireless carrier said its 5G service will be available in 28 NFL stadiums by the end of the year and fans could use certain 5G devices to view a game with up to seven different camera angles, along with other augmented reality features. "We will work with all the biggest sports leagues in the world ... for using 5G for fans and the teams," Chief Executive Officer Hans Vestberg said on a call with reporters on Sunday.
