The NFL is rebooting an experiment from a few years back and moving the Pro Bowl to the Super Bowl site.
The League announcing the 2015 NFL All-Star game will take place at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona n January 25, just one week before Super Bowl XLIX.
The NFL has also said the 2016 will be back in Hawaii in 2016.
The Pro Bowl has been regularly held in at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu since 1979, with the notable exception 2009, when the game was held at Sun Life Stadium, site of Super Bowl XLIV, and it was the first time the game had been played one week before the championship game.
The League has been trying to spark more interest in the game for years, and moving it closer than Hawaii might attract more players to participate.
The NFL also dropped the conference affiliated format last year, in favor of a fantasy draft with two NFL legends as captains, a format that is expected to continue this year.
