For the first time since 2009, the 2015 Pro Bowl will not be held in Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii — the location that has become synonymous with the game.
The game will be held in Glendale, Arizona, the site of Super Bowl XLIX the following weekend.
Here is the date, time and location of the game:
Sunday, January 25, 2015
The University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona
This year’s Pro Bowl will follow similar guidelines to last year’s game.
Two designated alumni captains — former Vikings wide receiver Cris Carter and Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin — drafted from the fan-selected players and made up two teams of 44 players each.
Last year, Hall of Famers, wide receiver Jerry Rice and cornerback Deion Sanders were the two captains. These were the two 2014 Pro Bowl rosters.
Each roster must contain 21 players on offense, 18 players on defense and five on special teams.
