What is the Pro Bowl
The Pro Bowl is the all-star game of the National Football League (NFL). From the merger with the rival American Football League (AFL) in 1970 up through 2013 and since 2017, it is officially called the AFC–NFC Pro Bowl, matching the top players in the American Football Conference (AFC) against those in the National Football Conference (NFC). From 2014 through 2016, the NFL experimented with an unconference format, where the teams were selected by two honorary team captains (who are each in the Hall of Fame), instead of selecting players from each conference. The players were picked in a televised “schoolyard pick” prior to the game.
History of Pro Bowl
The NFL Pro Bowl is an annual American football game that takes place at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The term “Pro bowl” is trademarked by the National Football League although closely related football games such as the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup and Major League Soccer’s MLS All-Star Game share similar names.
The origins of the term, “Pro Bowl,” which has been used since 1940 to describe professional exhibition games, are unclear. The National Football League does not offer any official explanation but has historically celebrated the playing of many regular seasons and postseason contests near Hawaii and other tropical regions of the United States.
It was once suggested that the name has nothing to do with bowls or recreation, but instead comes from pro.
The first Pro Bowl
The first official Pro Bowl was played in January 1951, three weeks after the 1950 NFL Championship Game (between 1939 and 1942, the NFL experimented with all-star games pitting the league’s champion against a team of all-stars).
Between 1970 and 2009, the Pro Bowl was usually held the weekend after the Super Bowl.

The 2017 Pro Bowl (branded as the 2017 Pro Bowl presented by Aquafina for sponsorship reasons) was theNational Football League’s all-star game for the 2016 season, which was played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, on January 29th, 2017. The game was the first in a three-year deal to host the Pro Bowl in Orlando, which also included cross-promotional events (such as a newly established skills competition) held at the Walt Disney World resort (which is owned by the primary parent company of the game’s broadcaster, ESPN).
After three years of using a draft format, the 2017 Pro Bowl returned to the previous conference-based format, played between all-star teams representing the American Football Conference and National Football Conference. The AFC all-stars were coached by Andy Reid, and the NFC all-stars were coached by Jason Garrett.
