The NFL announced today locations and dates for the next two Pro Bowls.
Following the 2014 season, it will be played on Sunday, January 25, 2015 and televised live on ESPN at 8 PM ET from University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, the site of Super Bowl XLIX a week later.
The Pro Bowl following the 2015 season will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2016 and televised live on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Hawaii, which first hosted the NFL’s All-Star game in 1980. San Francisco will host Super Bowl L the following Sunday.
The NFL has an agreement to play the Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium following the 2016 season but final confirmation of the game will be made at a later date.
Watched by 11.4 million viewers in 2014, the Pro Bowl, presented by McDonald’s, has been the most-watched all-star game in all of sports the past four years.
The 2015 Pro Bowl will be the third one played in the same city as the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Coliseum hosted the first Super Bowl on January 15, 1967 and the Pro Bowl the following week. South Florida hosted the Pro Bowl in 2010 a week before Super Bowl XLIV.
Last year, the Bengals were represented by wide receiver A.J. Green and linebacker Vontaze Burfict, and offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, quarterback Andy Dalton and tight end Jermaine Gresham have previously played in it.
