Governor statement on Pro Bowl 2013


The National Football League (NFL) has announced it will hold its 2013 Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium for the 33rd time.

The game will be played Jan. 27 and broadcast live on network television.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie released the following statement:

“This is wonderful news for football fans in Hawaii 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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii and fans the world over. Hawaii 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.”
