Tickets for PBR Sundays at Cowtown on sale now

FORT WORTH, Texas (June 2, 2022) – PBR (Professional Bull Riders) today announced an 11-event Challenger Series residency at the iconic Cowtown Coliseum – PBR Sundays at Cowtown— bringing fans new bull riding competition featuring some of the world’s best riders to the historic Fort Worth Stockyards every Sunday afternoon from June 12-August 21.

Tickets for the events are on sale now, and start at $30, taxes and fees not included. Tickets can be purchased online at https://cowtowncoliseum.com/events or at the Cowtown Coliseum Box Office.

The newly launched PBR Challenger Series will hold more than 60 events from May-November, culminating with its Championship in early November in Las Vegas. The PBR Challenger Series is a proving ground in providing additional competitive opportunities for bull riders who are both affiliated and unaffiliated with a PBR Team Series team.

Each of the eight PBR Team Series teams, including Fort Worth’s own Texas Rattlers, will have the opportunity to place team riders into every Challenger Series event throughout the season which they may designate protected roster or practice roster riders to compete. In addition, affiliated team riders who are not designated by their team to compete may enter PBR Challenger Series events, along with unaffiliated PBR riders.

PBR Sundays at Cowtown will be every Sunday from June 12-August 21 at 2:00 p.m. CT. The complete list of event dates is as follows:

The newly revealed residency follows PBR’s announcement in June 2021 of a landmark joint venture with Stockyards Heritage Development Co. and ASM Global to bring dozens of annual new western sports, music and entertainment events to Cowtown Coliseum and the historic Stockyards District.

In late February, PBR, in partnership with Ultimate Bullfighters Inc. (UBF), announced the first residency programmed via the new partnership, launching a double-header event featuring a 12-man ultimate freestyle bullfighting showcase, followed by a performance of the popular Bulls Gone Wild, a unique blend of late-night comedy and world-class western sports competition.

Most recently, during the inaugural PBR World Finals in Fort Worth, fans were brought nearly two weeks of non-stop, Western lifestyle programming inside Cowtown Coliseum, including Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo, Women’s Rodeo World Championship, NBHA (National Barrel Horse Association) Super Showcase, Mexico en la Sangre, and more.

The bull riding action for PBR Sundays at Cowtown Coliseum begins each afternoon at 2:00 p.m. CT.

Each Sunday afternoon, all 35 competing riders will attempt one bull each in Round 1. Following the opening round, the Top 8 will then advance to the championship round where they will attempt one final bull, all in an effort to be crowned the event champion.

Tickets for the events are on sale now, and start at $30, taxes and fees not included. Tickets can be purchased online at https://cowtowncoliseum.com/events or at the Cowtown Coliseum Box Office.

PBR Elite Seats are available for $100 for avid fans who want an exclusive VIP experience. These tickets offer the best seats in the venue, and a question-and-answer presentation with some of the top bull riders and stock contractors in the world.
