No Pro Bowl in Santa Clara

April, 9, 2014
While NFC West rival Arizona is scheduled to host a Pro Bowl-Super Bowl doubleheader next year, the San Francisco 49ers very likely will not do the same in 2016.

The NFL announced Wednesday that the Pro Bowl will be in Arizona next January, a week before the Super Bowl is held there. The league has a tentative agreement to bring back the Pro Bowl to Hawaii, the most frequent host for the All-Star game, in 2016. It will be held a week before the Super Bowl is held in Levi’s Stadium, the new home of the 49ers in Santa Clara, Calif.
