Since I am a Green Bay Packers fan and my boyfriend is a San Francisco 49ers fan we decided to go to the Pro Bowl. The NFL Pro Bowl is a meeting of the top players from the NFC (National Football Conference) and the AFC (American Football Conference) teams to play an exibition game and be honored for their athletic skills. It allows the fans who normally would not be able to see their favorite players the ability to see them all at once. Since Oahu has tons of hotel space available, its a prime spot to hold a major event. Hawaii does not have a professional football team and the Pro Bowl gives its residents a chance to attend a game.
The Pro Bowl takes place the weekend after the NFL Superbowl. It is held in the Aloha Stadium where the University of Hawaii college games are played. Our tickets were $90.00 each and we were seated on the lower level toward the end zone. We purchased our tickets on line through gotickets.com. I do not recommend using this company since they were unable to provide us with two tickets sitting together and we were not told this until the day before the game. They also had to send the tickets to the hotel we were staying in Oahu even though we ordered weeks in advance.
I would recommend going to the Pro Bowl and checking out the Topps NFL Experience if you enjoy sports. The Topps NFL Experience is set up on Kuroda Field in Fort DeRussy right at the entrance to Waikiki during the weekend the Pro Bowl is held. Football fans can enjoy games, activities, prizes, food, NFL merchandise, a ferris wheel, Hall of Quarterbacks display, NFL Films Theatre, the Topps Card Show, free autographs from past and present NFL stars (be prepared for long lines).Admission ranges from $2.00 to $5.00. We paid $4.00 for adult admission because it was later in the day. At the end of the last day of the NFL Experience, the licensed Pro Bowl souveneirs get knocked down 25%. You can't beat the NFL Experience, if not for the admission price.
