Hawaii loses NFL's Pro Bowl in 2010 to Miami

After three decades in Hawaii, the National Football League Pro Bowl is leaving for Miami for at least one year after next month's game at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

The state pays the NFL about $4 million a year for hosting rights in the contract that ends with February's game.

The Pro Bowl generates about $30 million in visitor spending and $3 million in state tax revenue, state officials said.

The NFL said future Pro Bowls will be held in Honolulu as part of a rotation schedule that will include other U.S. cities. The site and date of future games will be determined at a later date.

The Pro Bowl game moved to Honolulu in 1980. This year, the Pro Bowl will be held Feb. 8, one week after the Super Bowl.

The NFL said it is in discussions with key leaders in Hawaii to continue its partnership with the state.
