The Pro Bowl is an all-inclusive event for fans on gameday. The 2017 Pro Bowl marked the first autism friendly game hosted by a professional sports league and the NFL will continue to accommodate fans with a variety of sensory issues by providing gameday support to these families.

Starting this season, the NFL will work with KultureCity, an organization that provides sensory accessibility resources and programming to help individuals with sensory needs feel comfortable at our games. Camping World Stadium, the home of the 2018 Pro Bowl, became a sensory-inclusive stadium earlier this year, and will be providing families from and visiting Orlando for the Pro Bowl an opportunity to enjoy the game with more confidence.

Although certain environmental factors cannot be altered on gameday, such as noise level and special effects, the NFL and KultureCity will work together to offer guests multiple options if and when they feel overwhelmed. These options include two sensory rooms for families to utilize if needed and sensory bags that will include a variety of tools including noise cancelling headphones, fidget tools and feeling thermometers. In addition to this, all guest services staff at the Camping World Stadium have been trained about sensory needs and there will also be KultureCity team members on hand to help make this an unforgettable inclusive experience.

The ultimate goal is to provide those with sensory sensitives the ability to be part of all the fun the Pro Bowl has to offer.

Please check in with the guest services booth at the stadium if you wish to utilize this program or receive more information.
