Pro Bowl next year in Arizona, in Hawaii in 2016

National Football Post

The Pro Bowl will be played in Arizona next year, one week before the Super Bowl.

The Pro Bowl is set for Jan. 25, 2015 at University of Phoenix Stadium, the site of Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1.

In 2016, the Pro Bowl goes back to Hawaii on Jan. 31. San Francisco hosts Super Bowl L the following week.

The NFL has an agreement with the state of 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 2015 Pro Bowl will be the third one played in the same city as the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Coliseum hosted the first Super Bowl on January 15, 1967 and the Pro Bowl the following week. South Florida hosted the Pro Bowl in 2010 a week before Super Bowl XLIV.

The 2015 Pro Bowl will be the sixth consecutive game played prior to the Super Bowl.
