LAS VEGAS (AP) – The Pro Bowl is headed to Las Vegas.

The NFL announced Tuesday that the 2021 all-star game will be played at the new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, Jan. 31 – one week before the Super Bowl in Tampa.

Plans include what the league calls a week-long celebration of football, and will include NFL FLAG Championship games and a Pro Bowl skills showdown in which players compete in a variety of events. There will be community and charity initiatives as well.

The move also helps Las Vegas after the city had the Draft snuffed out by Covid-19.

The last four Pro Bowls were held in Orlando, before that it was played in Hawaii.
