- The NFL’s annual Pro Bowl will be replaced this year with “The Pro Bowl Games,” a weeklong schedule of skill competitions and a flag football game.
- The league has been pushing to have flag football included in the Olympics, as it looks to expand internationally.
- The change comes as the Pro Bowl has often been criticized in past years as players don’t play to their best ability in order to avoid injuries.
This past summer the NFL partnered with the International Federation of American Football on bringing flag football to “The World Games,” an international event that showcases games that weren’t included in the Olympics, in Birmingham, Alabama.
