 HONOLULU (AP) -The NFL has decided the Pro Bowl will be played in Hawaii in 2009.
Under the current contract, the league could have moved the game to a different city in 2009, so long as the game returned to Hawaii in 2010.
Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced Friday that the NFL's postseason all-star game was staying put.
``I'm pleased to report that in discussions I had this morning with the National Football League, the game will be played in 2009 in Honolulu, Hawaii,'' Hannemann said at a news conference.
Hannemann said the game is important to the state's visitor industry because it draws 20,000 visitors to Hawaii. The state's contract with the NFL runs through the 2009 game.
The Pro Bowl has sold out every year since it moved to the 50,000-seat Aloha Stadium in 1980. The 2008 game is slated for Feb. 10.
