NFL teams are finally getting a chance to show their best in their first year in the league, and the latest on the 2018 NFL schedule includes an all-star game.
The All-Star Game will take place on Jan. 15 in Canton, Ohio, and will be broadcast on ESPN.
The NFL Network is also expected to air a special live pregame show on ESPN on Jan 30, which will include a pregame interview with the league’s Commissioner, Roger Goodell.
While there have been several rumors about the league possibly scrapping the All-star Game altogether, there are some indications the game will still be played.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the game has been discussed and he wants to get it right.
“It’s a tough decision, but we want to be clear,” Goodell said on Thursday.
“The NFL has never done anything to take away from a game that brings out fans and brings the country together.
So I don’t think we can do that in this day and age.
We want to make sure we do everything we can to ensure that fans and players have the opportunity to come together and be united.
I’m sure we will continue to do that.”
Goodell also said the league is still open to the idea of re-enacting the game.
“We are working on that.
I think it’s possible that we could do that, and that would be great,” Goodell told NFL Network.
“We will continue working with our leagues partners and our players, as well as our clubs, on ways to make that happen.”
Goodell is set to hold an all star game on Jan 15 at Soldier Field in Chicago, and a special pregame broadcast will be aired on ESPN between 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.t. on Jan 31.
The league is also set to host its annual awards show in New York on Feb. 3.
