PBR Tickets:Pro Bull Riding
The toughest sport on dirt.
The rules are simple.
Place a wiry 150-pound cowboy on the back of a hulking, snorting temperamental 2,000 pound bull and see if he can ride the beast for an eternal eight seconds...with one hand strapped to the bull's massive backside.
We carry NFR tickets but also PBR tickets and other rodeo events tickets .
Headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the Professional Bull Riders was created in 1992 when a group of 20 bull riders broke away from the traditional rodeo scene and decided to start a circuit for bull riders only. They felt that, as the most popular event in a rodeo, bull riding deserved to be in the limelight and could easily stand alone. Each rider invested a hard-earned $1,000, a few of them borrowing from family and friends, to start the PBR. Today the PBR is still owned by its athletes and is one of the only professional sports able to make such a claim. In 2003, the PBR celebrated its 10th Anniversary and relished the title of the fastest growing extreme sport in the country.
More than 700 bull riders from the U.S., Canada, Brazil, and Australia hold PBR memberships. They compete in more than 100 bull riding events per year on either the elite tour, the Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS), or the two minor league tours, U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company Challenger Tour and the Humps n' Horns Tour, for a chance to qualify for the PBR World Finals in Las Vegas and win the coveted title of PBR World Champion.
The 20 original owners took a gamble when they agreed to start this operation, and their gamble has certainly paid off. The corporate sponsors which include Ford, Bud light, Wrangler, Jack Daniel's, Mossy Oak, U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company, and the city of Las Vegas have brought such attention to the sport that in after just 10 years, the prize money has sky-rocketed to over $9.5 million dollars.
With the success of the PBR and the increasing sponsorship interests, television networks have climbed on board as well. In 2003, seven BFTS events were aired on NBC. All 29 events aired on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN) and a few even aired on the Spanish station Telemundo. Over one hundred million fans tuned in to watch the PBR.
The combination of raw sport and quality entertainment has propelled the PBR to phenomenal growth in live attendance, as well. The PBR plays to sold-out crowds at virtually every stop on their BFTS tour, including a record breaking 33,000 fans in Atlanta's Georgia Dome for the Atlanta Invitational.
Professional Bull Riding is a fierce, rough, and grueling sport with roots deep in American culture. It's America's original extreme sport. The PBR has turned it into a captivating, dangerous, on-the-edge-of-your-seat sporting event, with the best riders and bulls in the world.

NFR National Finals Rodeo
NATIONAL FINALS RODEO.
The National Finals Rodeo (NFR), known popularly as
the "super bowl of rodeo," is a championship event held annually by
the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). That organization established
the NFR in 1958 in order to determine the world champion in each of rodeo's
seven main events: calf roping, steer wrestling, bull riding, firstname.lastname@example.org
riding, bareback bronc riding, and team roping. The world championship steer
roping competition has always been held separately from the regular NFR. The
National Finals Rodeo showcases the talents of the nation's top fifteen
money-winners in each event as they compete for the world title.
The first NFR was held in Dallas in 1959 and continued at that venue through
1961. In 1962-64 Los Angeles hosted the competition. In 1964, however, Oklahoma
City successfully bid to be the host city. In 1965 the first NFR in State Fair
Arena drew 47,027 fans. The world event remained there through 1978 and
thereafter was held in the Myriad Convention Center. Rodeo's premier attraction
remained in Oklahoma City through 1984, bringing Oklahoma merchants an estimated
annual revenue of $8 million dollars. In 1984, however, the city of Las Vegas,
Nevada, bid for the event. Although the Oklahoma City Council considered
building a new $30 million arena at the State Fairgrounds, the Las Vegas bid
During the NFR rodeo's twenty years in Oklahoma City, some memorable performances
were turned in by athletes both human and animal. In December 1967 Freckles
Brown, who established an Oklahoma ranch after World War II, became the first
man in history to stay eight seconds on the bull Tornado. That famous bull,
which had thrown the previous 220 contestants, was owned by Jim Shoulders,
another world-champion cowboy from Oklahoma.
Other national rodeo championship competitions have also been held in
Oklahoma. The PRCA National Finals Steer Roping moved from Laramie, Wyoming, to
the Lazy E Arena, in Guthrie, Oklahoma, for the 1984 event and has continued
there. The Women's National Finals Rodeo was also held at the Lazy E from 1985
Oklahoma is also home to the International Finals Rodeo (IFR), held annually
since 1969 by the International Professional Rodeo Association (IPRA), which is
based in Oklahoma City.
