Professional Bull Riders this week announced that bull riding’s most prestigious event, the PBR World Finals, will move to Fort Worth and Dickies Arena starting in 2022 as part of a comprehensive schedule restructure for its premier series.
The new PBR Unleash The Beast regular season will span from January to May, culminating with a seven-day championship festival, spanning two weekends of bull riding and fan activities, in Fort Worth.
The changes will go into effect immediately after the 2021 PBR World Finals which will conclude the current season in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena Nov. 3-7.
"This has been an incredible team effort with PBR, Gov. Greg Abbott, our Fort Worth Sports Commission and so many others,” Mayor Mattie Parker said. “Fort Worth is the gold standard for public-private partnerships and we are marshaling all our resources to roll out the red carpet for the PBR World Finals."
