NFL pulls plug on Pro Bowl, cites COVID-19

The NFL’s annual postseason all-star game, the 2021 Pro Bowl, is off.

The league announced Wednesday that COVID-19 caused the cancellation of the game, which was scheduled to be played in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium on Jan. 31. The 2022 Pro Bowl will be awarded to Las Vegas, which also lost the 2020 NFL Draft amid the pandemic. That event was conducted virtually in April.

The NFL and NFLPA are working with other partners to create virtual activities to replace the game.

Fans will still be able to vote for players to the Pro Bowl roster starting Nov. 17 and the full rosters will be revealed in December.
