On Tuesday afternoon, the NFL officially announced that Allegiant Stadium, the brand new home for the Las Vegas Raiders, will play host to the 2021 Pro Bowl.

“The 2021 Pro Bowl will continue to be a weeklong celebration of football, and will feature various activities in Las Vegas including the NFL Flag Championship games, the AFC and NFC team practices and for the fifth consecutive year, Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, where the NFL’s biggest stars from each conference compete in unique tests of their skills.”

Last year’s Pro Bowl was held in Orlando, Florida. The AFC came out on top of the NFC by a score of 38-33. The AFC was led by the 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson who finished with a pair of touchdowns and 185 yards passing. Ravens tight end Mark Andrews led the team in receiving with nine catches for 73 yards and a score. Keenan Allen also chipped in 50 yards on four catches.

Allen was joined by Melvin Ingram as the only two Chargers to participate in this year’s Pro Bowl.
