The NFL Pro Bowl is reportedly saying goodbye to Honolulu and Aloha to Orlando.
According to a report by Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg.com, the NFL will move its All-Star Game to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
The Pro Bowl had been held in Hawaii every year but two since 1979, with the exceptions being Miami, Florida (2010) and Glendale, Arizona (2015). The league has yet to officially make an announcement, but NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Bloomberg that Orlando is among four cities bidding to host the contest along with Honolulu, Houston and Sydney, Australia.
The league’s Pro Bowl deal with Hawaii’s tourism authority ends on May 31.
The NFL dropped the conference vs conference format in 2014 and replaced it with fantasy drafts featuring former NFL stars Jerry Rice, Deion Sanders, Cris Carter and Michael Irvin picking the teams.
