The NFL announced that it will host the event next year and the city of Nevada will become the eleventh to host it.
The Nfl announced that the Pro Bowl 2021 will take place on January 31 at the stadium Allegiant of the Raiders, in the city of Las Vegas, which never hosted a match in the competition.
“We look forward to partnering with the Raiders and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority [LVCVA] to bring the excitement of Pro Bowl week to our fans and Las Vegas community for the first time, “he said. Peter O’Reilly, NFL manager, it’s a statement.
This will be the first season the Raiders play in Las Vegas, and the NFL had scheduled this year’s draft to take place on that city’s Strip, until the coronavirus pandemic forced it to be conducted remotely.
While Las Vegas was unable to host the holiday project this year, during the first round broadcast in April, Roger Goodell announced that the city received the draft of 2022, and the commissioner said, “We think you deserve another chance.”
Las Vegas will now become the eleventh Pro Bowl host since 1950, after Orlando had the last four. “The Raiders welcome Allegiant Stadium and Las Vegas, the world capital of sports and entertainment, to the NFL Pro Bowl,” said Raiders President Marc Badain.
“Pro Bowl week is a celebration of the best the NFL has to offer and there is no better place than Las Vegas to celebrate and honor the league’s biggest stars. The NFL, LVCVA and Raiders look forward to a world-class event that will set the standard for future NFL events in Las Vegas. “
The biggest NFL stars are coming to Vegas.
