The Pro Bowl will once again serve as NFL’s signature event to kick off the week leading up to the Super Bowl on February 3rd. The Pro Bowl was held consecutively in Hawaii from 1980 to 2009 and returned to Hawaii for the 2011 and 2012 games.
“The players have made it clear through the NFL Players Association that they would like the opportunity to continue to play the Pro Bowl in Hawaii,” said NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson.
In a recent statement, Mike McCartney, President and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority said, “We are extremely pleased the NFL will return to the Hawaiian Islands in 2013 for the Pro Bowl, and are grateful for our more than 30 year partnership.
Many of us believe that there is no better place in the world to host this game.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority has maintained ongoing discussions with the NFL leading up to this announcement. Together, we are committed to improving the quality of the game and overall experience, and are working to expand the Pro Bowl both in the Hawaiian Islands, as well as in Asia.
In addition to the worldwide media exposure for our Hawaiian Islands and the significant revenue and tax dollars generated by visitors who travel here specifically to attend the Pro Bowl, the game provides local businesses with an increase in activity and residents the opportunity to engage with players and experience a live professional football game.”
