Upcoming Pro Bowl to be played in Arizona

Aloha, meet the desert.
Arizona will be the epicenter of the NFL next January and February, and not just because Super Bowl XLIX will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

The NFL announced Wednesday that the 2015 Pro Bowl will precede the Super Bowl by a week on the same field. The Pro Bowl will be played at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 25, 2015, and will air on ESPN. The Super Bowl is Feb. 1.
It’s the third time the Pro Bowl has been played in the same city as the Super Bowl. In 1967, the Los Angeles Coliseum hosted both events, and the most recent was in 2010 in South Florida.
According to the NFL’s release, the Pro Bowl will move back to Hawaii in 2016. Through an agreement between the league and Hawaii, the 2017 game is supposed to be played at Aloha Stadium, “but final confirmation of the game will be made at a later date,” the release stated.
