The NFL has announced that the 2019 Pro Bowl presented by Verizon will return to Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, for the third year in a row. As a presenting sponsor, Verizon will be incorporated into elements of Pro Bowl Week’s events and have a significant presence at Camping World Stadium during the game.
“We’re excited to return to Orlando for the Pro Bowl and to provide the ultimate football and family experience to our fans, players and partners,” said NFL Senior Vice-President of Events Peter O’Reilly. “Hosting the event in Orlando has allowed us to expand the Pro Bowl into a week-long festival that celebrates the entire football community. We are thrilled to deepen our partnership with Verizon as the presenting sponsor and look forward to showcasing the NFL’s best alongside the next generation of stars on the Pro Bowl stage.”
Pro Bowl Week festivities will include events across the Orlando area, including the NFL Flag Championships powered by USA Football, the announcement of the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award, the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown and the NFL Pro Bowl Experience, a free football festival located at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort.
On game day, fans in attendance will have a pre-game opportunity to see the Pro Bowl players as they enter the stadium. Family-priced sections, concession deals, “Kid Zone” activities and special prizes will be available, including a chance to win a grand prize Super Bowl package. A post-game fireworks show will cap off the event.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Pro Bowl back to Central Florida,” said Steve Hogan, CEO of Florida Citrus Sports. “Over the past two years, Orlando has proved to be the perfect host for one of the NFL’s premier events, and we’re excited for the opportunity to make 2019 the most successful Pro Bowl Week yet.”
The 2019 Pro Bowl presented by Verizon will be held January 27. The game will be televised on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC with other platforms to be announced at a later date.
