For the 4th consecutive year, the NFL Pro Bowl will return to the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, set to take place at 3 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2020.

The All-Star game will pave the way for the league's national championship game, Super Bowl 54, a week later at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.



Fans, players and coaches will have the opportunity to select 88 Pro Bowl Players for the AFC vs. NFC battle, a match that has been dominated by the AFC since the Pro Bowl originally moved to Orlando in 2016.

"We're thrilled to return to Orlando for the fourth year in a row and bring the Pro Bowl experience to the city of Orlando, our fans, players and partners," said Peter O'Reilly, NFL Executive Vice President, Club Business & League Events said via a statement. "We're happy to provide not only a week-long celebration of football, but also to extend the celebration of the NFL's 100th season throughout this year's Pro Bowl."



Activities for the celebration will include a skills showdown and the league’s flag football championships.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer took to Twitter to voice his excitement for the return of the Pro Bowl.
