What is the NFR Rodeo and can the public access tickets?
Cowboys from all across the U.S. and Canada work all year in hopes of qualifying for the National Finals Rodeo( NFR), the PRCA's premier championship, sometimes referred to as the "Superbowl of Rodeos".
The NFR is held each December in Las Vegas at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The top 15 regular-season finishers in each event qualify for the NFR and compete for prize money. In December, 2012, this prize money exceeded $6.5 million.
The NFR features the Top 15 competitors in each of professional rodeo's seven events: saddle bronc riding, bull riding, bareback riding, calf roping, team roping, steer wrestling and barrel racing. Consisting of ten consecutive days, each of which has a competition, or "go-round", in each event with its own prizes. In addition, each event has a separate set of prizes for having the best combined results over the ten days, referred to as "the average." Keep in mind, all events take place on each and every day.
Each year over 140,000 people attend the "Sold Out" National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas and more than 13 million viewers tuned in when all 10 rounds of the Finals were broadcast on ESPN and ESPN2. The National Finals Rodeo is sold out each and every year, more than a year in advance. A majority of all tickets for the NFR rodeo are distributed to season seat holders who have owned them for 20 to 50 years. They are also distributed to corporate sponsors and contestants. Thus, because the Thomas and Mack center venue is small for such a high demand event, fans who want to attend have to secure their tickets through licensed brokers like 1-888-NFR-RODEO (1-888-637-7633). Before buying your tickets from a broker make sure they are licensed , and preferably a BBB and NATB member, so you know you are getting authentic tickets.
