University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale is slated to host the
game on January 25, 2015, one week before the Super Bowl for the
2014 season is played at the same venue.
In 2016, the Pro Bowl will return to Hawaii's Aloha Stadium, where
it has been contested in 33 of the last 34 years.
The NFL has an agreement with Hawaii to play the Pro Bowl at Aloha
Stadium following the 2016 season but final confirmation of the game
will be made at a later date.
The future of the Pro Bowl, which features the league's best players
not involved in the following week's Super Bowl, was put in doubt in
recent years amid criticism of being a glorified exhibition.
The 2014 Pro Bowl did away with the traditional AFC versus NFC
matchup, and instead had players selected to teams without regard to
conference in voting by fans, coaches and players.
