The NFL announced on October 14, 2020 that the 2021 Pro Bowl, originally slated for January 31, is canceled due to Covid-19 concerns. For the first time in more than 70 years, the league will not hold its annual all-star game. Instead, the NFL is focusing on completing the full regular season and postseason during the coronavirus pandemic. Las Vegas, which was slated to host this season’s Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium, will instead welcome the league’s best for the 2022 edition of the game. Even though the actual game won’t be played, the NFL says they remain committed to selecting Pro Bowl teams. Voting by fans begins in mid-November, with rosters to be revealed in December.
