NFL discussing possible move for Pro Bowl in 2015

Pro Bowl Hawaii

The Pro Bowl could be moving to the mainland in 2015.

On Tuesday, National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell discussed possible changes to the Pro Bowl format.

“We’re committed, as you know, to Hawaii for the 2014 game,” Goodell said. “Our intention is to keep it in that time period…There is interest in potentially bringing it back to the mainland in multiple sites.”

In March, Goodell said Hawaii would host the Pro Bowl for at least one more year. According to the contract, the annual all-star game is scheduled to be played at Aloha Stadium on Jan. 26, 2014.

After that, the NFL said Hawaii would be included on a rotation basis.

“We are having ongoing discussions with the NFL and look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship,” Hawaii Tourism Authority President and CEO Mike McCartney said.

The game attracts about 20,000 visitors and generates about $30 million each year.
