NFL Pro Bowl moving to Orlando, returning to AFC-NFC matchup
NFL announces move of Pro Bowl to Orlando
The NFL said Wednesday that the Pro Bowl would move to Orlando, Fla., and return to traditional conference teams as part of a “re-imagining” of the event.
The game has been held in Honolulu, Hawaii, for most of the last 35 years. The NFL moved the event to Miami after the 2009 season and Phoenix after the 2014 season.
ORLANDO, Fla. — The NFL has announced that the Pro Bowl is moving to Orlando following this season after being played in Honolulu for most of the past 29 years.
Officials from the NFL, ESPN, Disney and Florida Citrus Sports were at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports on Wednesday to say the league’s all-star game will be played Camping World Stadium.
The Pro Bowl had been played in Hawaii since 1979, with the exception of two years. In addition to the Pro Bowl, the NFL also announced the Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons would play their preseason game at Camping World Stadium.
The stadium previously known as the Citrus Bowl recently underwent a $200 million in renovations in hopes of attracting the NFL.
