Where is the NFL Pro Bowl in 2023? Location, stadium, tickets & more to know for Las Vegas
Less than a year after Las Vegas hosted the NFL Draft, the league returns to Sin City for the Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium.
The Pro Bowl moved to Las Vegas in 2021 after a four-year stint at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. Last year was the first time the Raiders field hosted the NFL’s best.
This year, the Pro Bowl will have a completely different face. Instead of an exhibition game, it will be a seven-on-seven flag football showdown between the two conferences, with Eli Manning and Peyton Manning coaching the NFC and AFC respectively.
Prior to the flag football matches, there will be a series of skills competitions between the two conferences, including a best-hold competition and good old dodgeball.
Where is the Pro Bowl this year?
The NFL has moved the Pro Bowl to Las Vegas starting in 2021, and it looks like it’s going to stay in the desert for the immediate future.
Now called NFL Pro Bowl Games, the exhibit was briefly held in Orlando before being moved to Paradise. Next year, the Super Bowl will also be played in Las Vegas.
Why did the Pro Bowl leave Hawaii?
A myriad of factors led the NFL to initially move from Hawaii to Orlando.
One of them was to leverage ESPN’s marketing power to merge the Pro Bowl and Disneyworld, giving players a vacation and attracting fans.
The move to Las Vegas was no doubt similarly motivated, as one of America’s prominent travel destinations.
Hawaii’s Aloha Stadium, the former home of the Pro Bowl, has had a moratorium imposed on new events in 2020 after suffering issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic, closing the door to a return – from less at this place.
