NFL Launches Social Media #ProBowlVote For 2017 Pro Bowl

Fans can get involved in this year's social media #ProBowlVote by visiting Seahawks.com/ProBowlSocialVote

For the first time ever, the NFL is instituting a social media element in the fan-voting process for the Pro Bowl, and starting today -- Tuesday, November 15 -- you can help send your favorite players to 2017's game in Orlando, Florida

While traditional voting has been and remains open at Seahawks.com/ProBowl, the social media layer to this year's ballot process provides 12s with another way to have their voices heard by utilizing their platforms on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

A complete look at social media Pro Bowl-voting rules can be found right here, but here's a shorter look at how to make sure your vote counts:

After three years using a revised unconferenced, fantasy-football style format that saw NFL Legends pick their respective teams from a pool of Pro Bowl players, this year's game will return to the traditional AFC vs NFC matchup. Eighty-eight players will make the League's annual all-star game -- 44 from the AFC and 44 from the NFC -- determined by votes from fans, players, and coaches.

The 2017 Pro Bowl will kick off at 5 p.m. PT on Sunday, January 29 -- the weekend before Super Bowl LI -- from Orlando's Camping World Stadium. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN. Tickets are available now, and for more information, head to visitorlando.com/probowl.
