In a stranger turn of events the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl will be doing something they have never done befoer in the NFL. The NFL Pro Bowl date has been changed, to the delight of many NFL plans.
One of the biggest changes in recent years within the NFL season is to make the Pro Bowl a part of the Super Bowl festivities. Did you know that the 2015 Pro Bowl will be played a week before the NFL’s Super Bowl. What’s also interesting about this setup is the fact that the Pro Bowl will also be played in University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The 2015 Pro Bowl is special case because the Pro Bowl is traditionally played in Hawaii. This is sort of a vacation for players and families of players who have excelled in the regular season.
The NFL has noted that the Pro Bowl will return to Hawaii in 2016 and 2017. No plans for 2018 have been made public yet in regards to the Pro Bowl. The idea of hosting the Pro Bowl at the University of Phoenix Stadium is being credited to Cardinals President Michael Bidwell. He pressed the NFL to include the Pro Bowl into Arizona’s Super Bowl week of festivities. The Pro Bowl will certainly help the economy of the Glendale, Arizona area as the event will help bring in fans who may be able to pony up the hefty price of a Super Bowl 49 ticket.
