The Governor stated:

“We have kept in close contact with NFL officials, and I am very pleased that the Pro Bowl is returning to Hawaii in 2014. Like thousands of fans, I thoroughly enjoyed the last Pro Bowl game held in January at our Aloha Stadium. Opportunities to reach national and international audiences such as this will help maintain our state’s positive economic momentum, particularly in the visitor industry.

“I would like to acknowledge the efforts of the Hawaii Tourism Authority and our partners in working collaboratively with the NFL to ensure the continuation of this valuable Hawaii-NFL partnership and the game’s fourth decade in Hawaii.

“The NFL has recognized that the Pro Bowl is at home in the islands.”
