The NFL announced on Wednesday that the Pro Bowl will continue to be played. The upcoming season's Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii for the 33rd time.
The 2013 Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 27, 2013 at 7 p.m. Eastern, the week before Super Bowl XLVII (Feb. 3, New Orleans). NBC will have the broadcast of the NFL's All-Star game.
Ray Anderson, the NFL's Executive Vice President of Football Operations said, "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. We will support the players on this initiative to improve the Pro Bowl. We have had many discussions with the players in recent years about the Pro Bowl and they recognize that the quality of the game has not been up to NFL standards. We look forward to working with the players toward the goal of improving the competitiveness of this season's game."
NFLPA President Domonique Foxworth said, "The players believe that the Pro Bowl is an important tradition. We worked hard with the league to make sure the best players in the NFL are honored for their achievements on the field."
