The 2021 Pro Bowl will be held in Las Vegas, the NFL announced on Tuesday.
The All-Star game, which is scheduled for Sunday, January 31, had taken place in Orlando for the past four years, and now will be showcased at Allegiant Stadium following the Raiders’ first season in their new home.
Las Vegas was supposed to host the NFL draft in April but that was canceled due to the coronavirus.
The 2021 Pro Bowl will continue to feature activities in the week leading up to the game, including the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, AFC and NFC team practices and the NFL FLAG Championship games. All activities will adhere to the latest public safety guidelines set by medical and public officials, the NFL said.
Caesars Entertainment, the NFL’s official casino sponsor, will use its casino properties for fan experiences during the 2021 Pro Bowl. Further details will be announced later.
The 2021 Pro Bowl, which is presented by Verizon, will adhere to the traditional AFC-versus-NFC format, with 44 players on each team. NFL legends will serve as captains to represent each conference.
