2018 NFL PRO BOWL
2018 NFL PRO BOWL
Following the success of its first year in Orlando, the PRO BOWL will return to Camping World Stadium on Sunday, January 28 at 3:00 PM ET. For the second consecutive year, the NFL will host PRO BOWL WEEK festivities across the Orlando area, bringing new experiences and activities as well as an extraordinary number of events focused on commemorating all levels of football – from youth to high school to the NFL’s best. In addition, Pro Bowl players will again be able to invite their former youth or high school coach to be a part of the week’s celebrations.
“The Pro Bowl is not only a time to watch NFL greats compete live, but it is also a unique opportunity to inspire youth and the next generation of stars,” said PETER O’REILLY, NFL Senior Vice President of Events. “We received tremendous feedback from players, coaches, and fans about Orlando’s first Pro Bowl, and we are excited to build upon that enthusiasm with a week-long festival that celebrates the entire football community.”
The 2018 Pro Bowl will follow the traditional AFC versus NFC match-up, which returned last season, and feature 88 of the best NFL players – 44 from each conference – as determined by a consensus of votes by fans, players, and coaches. Both teams will be led by offensive and defensive NFL Legends who will serve as captains representing each conference.
Orlando will once more be home to the NFL FLAG CHAMPIONSHIPS POWERED BY USA FOOTBALL, the announcement of the prestigious DON SHULA NFL HIGH SCHOOL COACH OF THE YEAR AWARD and the annual USA FOOTBALL NATIONAL CONFERENCE, the largest congregation of youth and high school football administrators and coaches in the country.
“Hosting Orlando’s inaugural NFL Pro Bowl at Camping World Stadium earlier this year was not only fun, but it was a resounding success for our Central Florida community,” said Orlando Mayor BUDDY DYER. “We enthusiastically welcome our NFL partners back in 2018. Their confidence in our city's ability to put on such a high-profile event underscores our reputation as one of the premier sports destinations in the U.S.
