The Pro Bowl will be played in Orlando, according to a report.

The NFL has traditionally held the league's annual all-star game, the Pro Bowl, in Honolulu, Hawaii's Aloha Stadium. That tradition has not stopped them from moving it around to other locations on occasion, including recent games played in Miami and Phoenix. Now, it sounds like the game will be heading back to Florida - but not to one of the home cities for the three teams in Florida.

Orlando's Citrus Bowl - now called Camping World Stadium - has been working with the league recently to return football to Orlando, whether that be preseason- or regular-season games, and did include rumors that the Pro Bowl could be included in those discussions. The Citrus Bowl recently underwent renovations and is currently the home to Major League Soccer's Orlando City SC. The soccer team will move to their own stadium in downtown Orlando after the 2016 MLS season is concluded.

The 2017 Pro Bowl will follow this upcoming season and will be played January 29.
