Following the success of its first year in Orlando, the Pro Bowl will return to Camping World Stadium on Sunday, January 28, the NFL announced May 25. The game will be televised on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, and simulcast on ABC, marking the first time it will air on both broadcast and cable networks.

For the second consecutive year, the NFL will host Pro Bowl Week festivities across the Orlando area, bringing new experiences and activities 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. In addition, Pro Bowl players will be able to invite their former youth or high school coach to be a part of the week’s celebrations.
The 2018 Pro Bowl will once again follow the traditional AFC versus NFC match-up and feature 88 of the best NFL players – 44 from each conference – as determined by a consensus of votes by fans, players, and coaches. Both teams will be led by Offensive and Defensive Legends who will serve as captains representing each conference.
Additional events during Pro Bowl Week will include the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge, testing the athletic prowess of All-Stars from each conference in unique competitions, and the free NFL Pro Bowl Experience, located at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort. Fans attending the Pro Bowl Experience will be able to get closer to the action with new activities, immersive exhibits, and sponsor activations. Pro Bowl practices for the AFC and NFC teams will also be held at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, allowing fans to watch their favorite players as they prepare for the game.
