ORLANDO, Fla. – The NFL is reportedly moving its Pro Bowl game to Orlando.

Bloomberg reported on Thursday the NFL is moving the Pro Bowl from Honolulu to Orlando, adding that the City Beautiful was bidding against Honolulu, Houston and Sydney, Australia, to host the game. 

Bloomberg reports the game will be played at the revamped Citrus Bowl, which was renamed the Camping World Stadium last month.

The Pro Bowl has traditionally been played in Hawaii. However, in recent years, Miami and Houston have hosted the game.

The Orange County mayor's office said Thursday evening that they had not received any confirmation on the announcement.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said last month that the Pro Bowl would bring thousands of people to the city and benefit the local economy.

The Camping World Stadium already hosts Orlando City Soccer Club, college bowl games and will host next year's Wrestlemania.
