Today the National Football League (NFL) announced it will hold its 2013 Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium for the 33rd time. The game will be held on January 27 and broadcast live on network television.
Governor Neil Abercrombie released the following statement:
"This is wonderful news for football fans in Hawai'i and elsewhere who love watching the game. It's also great news for NFL Players and their families who enjoy coming to our Aloha State."
"I have had discussions with the Hawai'i Tourism Authority (HTA) and the NFL to look at ways in which we can provide a renewed experience for the game next year for the players, visitors, people of Hawai'i and fans the world over. Hawai'i has a variety of cultural experiences to offer and we want to be sure to highlight our uniqueness beyond the beauty of our landscape."
"We look forward to working with the NFL and the HTA in this partnership and offer our hand in assisting the NFL as it builds relationships with our friends in Asia."
