Pro Bowl players ​

Game Tickets on Sale at


In the lead up to the 2019 PRO BOWL PRESENTED BY VERIZON at ORLANDO’S CAMPING WORLD STADIUM on January 27, the NFL is hosting a week-long celebration to unite and inspire the entire football community.

Throughout the week, a fan-focused program offers free interactive experiences and youth and high school football competitions. For the third consecutive year, Pro Bowlers from the AFC and NFC will compete in unique competitions at the PRO BOWL SKILLS SHOWDOWN – this year featuring the “40-YARD SPLASH Presented by McDonalds,” where players will race to fill up a dunk tank and attempt to hit the target with a football. The event airs on Thursday, January 24, at 9:00 PM ET on ESPN and Disney XD.

The week also offers opportunity to give back to the community. For the first time at Pro Bowl, the NFL will host PRO BOWL COMMUNITY DAY on Saturday, January 26, when Pro Bowl players will participate in various activities supporting Community Service, Youth Football, Youth Health & Wellness, the Military Community, and Sustainability efforts. Through the NFL FOUNDATION PRO BOWL GIVEBACK, Pro Bowl players on the winning team may apply for a $10,000 NFL Foundation grant to be donated to the high school or youth football program of their choice. Also, during one practice, Pro Bowlers will be wearing special shirts adorned with the NFL PLAYER CARE FOUNDATION logo. The shirts will be auctioned off via NFL Auction, and all money raised will support retired players in need.

On gameday, fans can cheer on Pro Bowl players along the RED CARPET as they enter the stadium from 12:00-1:00 PM ET, and during the game there will be dedicated AFC AND NFC SEATING sections, enabling fans of rival teams to join forces and cheer on their conference as well as KIDZONE, a kid friendly play area in the North Plaza of the stadium where families can take their children during the game. NFL Network’s DAN HELLIE will be the stadium host and engage with fans throughout the game.

The Pro Bowl will be televised live Sunday, January 27 at 3:00 PM ET on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, Disney XD and ABC. Game streaming is available on ESPN digital platforms, Yahoo Sports on mobile, and the NFL app on mobile. Audio of the game will be broadcast nationally by Westwood One, and carried on SiriusXM and the TuneIn App. ESPN will also provide live coverage of many of the events during Pro Bowl Week across the ESPN, ABC and Disney platforms, in addition to NFL Media.

Seven-time Grammy Award-winner and “Empress of Soul” GLADYS KNIGHT will sing the National Anthem as part of Super Bowl LIII pregame festivities at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday, February 3, the NFL and CBS announced today. The performance will be televised live on CBS prior to kickoff.

Fall of 2015 marked the release of Knight’s first mainstream dance record, “Just A Little” in nearly twenty years. The song serves as lead single from her twelfth studio album that she is currently on. The year of 2011 was a year of much recognition as Knight was both honoring and being honored, first at a Michael Jackson tribute concert, and then at the 2011 Soul Train Awards.

Gladys Knight joins the ranks of many great performers who have sung the Super Bowl National Anthem including: Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Mariah Carey, Cher, Natalie Cole, Harry Connick, Jr., Neil Diamond, Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Wynton Marsalis, Idina Menzel, Aaron Neville, P!NK, Jordin Sparks, Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Vanessa Williams, and many more. (A complete list of National Anthem performers from past Super Bowls is listed below.)
