In professional American football, the Pro Bowl is the all-star game of the National Football League. From the merger with the rival American Football League in 1970 up through 2013, it was officially called the AFC–NFC Pro Bowl.
In 2023, the rules of the Pro Bowl have changed. 2023 will introduce a 7 on 7 Flag Footbal game.
The NFL Pro Bowl matched the top players in the American Football Conference against those in the National Football Conference. But now, teams will not be based on the two conferences and will instead be chosen by two team captains in a televised fantasy draft four days prior to the game.
Unlike most other North American sports leagues, which hold their all-star games roughly midway through their respective regular seasons, the Pro Bowl is played around the end of the NFL season. Between the 1970 merger and 2009, it was usually held on the weekend after the Super Bowl. Since 2010, the Pro Bowl has been played on the weekend one week after the Conference Championship games, one week before the Super Bowl.
