The decision on where to play the 2017 Pro Bowl is going into overtime.
The NFL and Hawaii Tourism Authority today announced by mutual agreement to extend the deadline for opting out of their contract for the 2017 Pro Bowl.
Each party now has until May 31 to exit the contract.
The announcement said, “This extension allows discussions to continue while both parties consider all possible options for 2017.”
Today had been the deadline for the parties to make an announcement under terms of a 2014 agreement that was to have placed both the 2016 and ‘17 games at Aloha Stadium.
The HTA earlier said it wanted the game in Aloha Stadium, but the NFL has been entertaining interest from Sydney, Australia as well as Houston and possibly other cities.
