NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has canceled next January's Pro Bowl scheduled for Las Vegas.

During an owners meeting held virtually on Wednesday, the league opted to call off the all-star game, hoping to replace it with a variety of virtual activities. 

The NFL needs flexibility in January in case it needs to move regular-season games to that month because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

If the game is held in 2022, it will be at the new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
