The success of the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl in Las Vegas has prompted the NFL to return the game for 2023. The 2022 weeklong NFL Party could become a regular event for Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is set to approve the $1.75 million hosting fee tied to the Pro Bowl.
The exact date is still to be determined, but the LVCVA notes the game could be played on Feb. 5, 2023. “Building on the incredible success of the 2022 Pro Bowl and 2022 draft in Las Vegas, we are thrilled to bring the 2023 Pro Bowl back to the city for the second year and continue our partnership with the LVCVA and the Las Vegas Raiders,” an NFL spokesperson said in a statement. “Exciting Pro Bowl changes are ahead, and we look forward to sharing more details in the coming weeks.” The 2022 NFL Pro Bowl held at Allegiant Stadium proved successful financially, however, generating a $54.7 million economic impact and drawing nearly 30,000 fans from out of state, according to the LVCVA. Las Vegas was also set to host the 2021 Pro Bowl, but that was held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time.
There were 45,672 fans in attendance for the 2022 Pro Bowl, according to the Las Vegas Stadium Authority data. Pro Bowl week was more than just the game on Sunday, with various events occurring throughout the Las Vegas Valley in the lead-up to the game.
