The Pro Bowl has been reconfigured for 2023 and beyond, moving away from an actual football game after struggling to attract the kind of interest the NFL is accustomed to seeing.
The league did not do away with the event, though. The Pro Bowl is now the Pro Bowl Games, beginning during the middle of the week with skills challenges.
The highlight of the weekend is still a football game, but it will be a flag football game. Some might argue that’s what the previous version was becoming with its lack of defense.
The flag football game will take place in the same venue as last year and at the same time, but it should be much more intriguing as some of the NFL’s best talents take the field together.

Where is the Pro Bowl 2023?
- Location: Las Vegas, Nev.
- Stadium: Allegiant Stadium
The format of the Pro Bowl has changed, but the location has not.
Unlike some of the NFL’s other marquee events, such as the Super Bowl and Draft, the Pro Bowl festivities tend to stay in one place for several years. The Pro Bowl spent more than three decades in Hawaii before moving to Orlando in 2017.
The event took place in Las Vegas last year and is expected to stay there for the time being.
