NFL announces 2018 Pro Bowl on sale now

 

New Voting Window Opens from November 14 to December 14

NFL Network to Reveal Player Selections on December 19

The League’s brightest stars are returning to Orlando’s Camping World Stadium for the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday, January 28, 2018. Tickets to the game are now on sale at NFL.com/ProBowlOnSale. Last year’s sold-out event – the Pro Bowl’s first time in Orlando – featured a capacity crowd of more than 60,000.

With a new start time of 3:00 PM ET, the 2018 Pro Bowl will be televised live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC – the first time the game will be available on both broadcast and cable networks. Special group ticket packages, including access to VIP seating at Pro Bowl practices, are available by calling (646) 688-5705.

Premium Pro Bowl packages, including VIP parties and hotel accommodations, can also be purchased through On Location Experiences (OLE), the NFL’s official source for event experiences and hospitality. More information on Pro Bowl gameday and weekend packages is available at NFLOnLocation.com.

Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players, and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 players who will be eligible for the game. Rosters for the game will be announced on “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed,” an NFL Network special airing on Tuesday, December 19 at 8:00 PM ET.

A new month-long Pro Bowl voting period begins on Tuesday, November 14 and concludes on Thursday, December 14. Fans can vote online and via web-enabled mobile phones at NFL.com/ProBowlVote to help send their favorite players to the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl.

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 15. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches, and players to determine its All-Star teams, and it was the first professional sports league to offer online voting for such an event in 1995.

For the second consecutive year, the NFL will host Pro Bowl Week festivities across the Orlando area, bringing free experiences and activities to fans as well as an extraordinary number of events focused on commemorating all levels of football – from youth to high school to the NFL’s best. Some of the Pro Bowl Week events will include:

  • Pro Bowl Experience: A free football festival located at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World® Resort, where fans can participate in immersive exhibits, take photos with the Vince Lombardi Trophy, attend player autograph sessions, and more.
  • Pro Bowl Practices: AFC and NFC team practices – which are free and open to the public – will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, allowing fans to watch their favorite players as they get ready for the game.
  • Pro Bowl Skills Showdown: For the second straight year, this unique competition will test the athletic prowess of the NFL’s best players in unique competitions.

In the week leading up to the game, the NFL will also recognize youth and high school football players, coaches and programs in special ways, including the NFL FLAG Championships Powered by USA Football, the USA Football National Conference, a congregation of administrators, coaches and leaders in youth and high school football, and the announcement of the prestigious Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award.

The Pro Bowl is an all-inclusive event for fans on gameday. The 2017 Pro Bowl marked the first autism-friendly game hosted by a professional sports league. The NFL will continue to accommodate fans with a variety of sensory issues at the 2018 game at Camping World Stadium, which became a sensory-inclusive venue earlier this year.

Working with KultureCity, Camping World Stadium’s sensory-inclusive partner, the NFL will offer families who attend the 2018 Pro Bowl with support, including sensory accessibility resources and two dedicated sensory rooms located in the stadium on gameday to enable them to enjoy the game with more confidence and comfort.

Fans are encouraged to visit NFL.com/ProBowl for the latest Pro Bowl information.

  • Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON passed for a franchise-record 452 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the Seahawks’ 41-38 win over Houston. Wilson, in his sixth season, has seven career games with at least four touchdown passes and one or fewer interceptions. Only Pro Football Hall of Famers DAN MARINO (10) and BRETT FAVRE (nine) have more such games in a player’s first six seasons.

    Houston rookie quarterback DESHAUN WATSON passed for 402 yards and four touchdowns against Seattle.

    Watson has thrown at least three touchdown passes in four consecutive games and is the first rookie in NFL history to accomplish the feat.

Watson has 16 touchdown passes in his past four games, the most in league annals by a rookie in any four-game span.

This season, Watson has 19 passing touchdowns, the most ever by a rookie in his first seven games of a season. Watson has also passed Pro Football Hall of Famer KURT WARNER (18 from 1998-1999) for the most passing touchdowns by a player in his first seven career games.

  • New Orleans quarterback DREW BREES completed 23 of 28 passes (82.1 percent) for 299 yards in the Saints’ 20-12 win over Chicago.
