In a joint press release, the NFL and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) announced on Friday that the league will indeed be holding the NFL Pro Bowl, the league’s All-Star game. The game will be played on January 27 2013 and the game will be played in Hawaii. During the 2010 season, the NFL moved the game to the site of the Super Bowl, Miami while moving the game to the week prior to the Super Bowl, rather than the following week.
There was a possibility that the All-Star event could have been played this season in New Orleans, the site of this year’s Super Bowl, but it would have conflicted with the annual Mardi Gras celebration held in New Orleans.
