NFL Pro Bowl Coming to Orlando in 2017

2017 NFL Pro Bowl will take place at Camping World Stadium in Orlando

It was announced this week that the 2017 NFL Pro Bowl will take place at Camping World Stadium in Orlando on Sunday, January 29. The deal will keep the Pro Bowl here for two years, with the NFL and Florida Citrus Sports both having an option clause on a third year.

The 2017 Pro Bowl will feature a return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC game format following three years using a revised, “unconferenced” format. The NFL’s best will once again be in the spotlight as 88 players – 44 from the AFC and 44 from the NFC – are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches.

In addition to that, Pro Bowl AFC and NFC practices will be held alongside youth football competitions, activities and fan events at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World during the week prior to the game known as Pro Bowl Week.

Also taking place during Pro Bowl Week:

The annual USA Football National Conference will take place during the week leading up to the Pro Bowl. USA Football, the sport’s national governing body and a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, leads the largest annual conference of high school and youth football administrators and high school coaches in the United States.

The Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award winner will be announced during the Pro Bowl as part of a year-long recognition of high school coaches on ESPN. The award honors high school football coaches that display the integrity, achievement, and leadership exemplified by Pro Football Hall of Famer DON SHULA, the winningest coach in NFL history.

Pro Bowl festivities for youth and their families will take place throughout the week across Orlando, including a Pro Bowl-themed 5k run and a parade of Pro Bowl players in the Magic Kingdom.

Beginning in the fall of 2016, first priority access to Pro Bowl game tickets will go to Season Ticket Members of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the other 29 NFL clubs and Florida Citrus Sports.

Remaining inventory of Pro Bowl game tickets will be available for purchase by the public in November. Fans may register on ProBowl.com for exclusive presale opportunities and additional information on Pro Bowl Week fan events in Orlando.

The Pro Bowl will be broadcast live on January 29, 2017, at 8pm ET on ESPN and ESPN Deportes
