(FOX 35) – The NFL announced Friday that Sunday’s Pro Bowl in Orlando is sold out. That means around 60,000 people are expected to attend. Officials also plan to offer standing-room-only tickets beginning Saturday morning.
“It’s outstanding. It’s just a great environment. You walk around and there are so many different things to do,” said Thoby Vieux, who is visiting from Arizona.
The game will cap off several days of events at the Wide World of Sports complex. Bowl team practices have been open to the public. Football games for people of all ages have also been underway, along with fan activities.
“Hoping to see some Steelers,” said Andrew Stevens, who is in town from Pittsburgh. “Hoping to see the AFC at least bring home a trophy.”
To the city of Orlando, the game is a win no matter who takes the trophy. The mayor estimates a $50 million economic impact.
