Additional Information


For the second time in as many years, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) elite Unleash The Beast will buck into Dickies Arena in Fort Worth to hold the fan-attended PBR Fort Worth Invitational on August 28–29.

The bull riding action begins with Round 1 at 6:45pm on Saturday, August 28, concluding with Round 2 and the championship round at 12:45pm on Sunday, August 29. All 30 bull riders will get on one bull each in Round 1 and 2. Following Round 2 on Sunday afternoon, the riders’ individual two-round scores will be totaled with the Top 12 advancing to the championship round for one more out and a chance at the event title.

Tickets for the two-day event are on sale at Ticketmaster.com, PBR.com.

PBR Elite Seats are available for avid fans who want an exclusive VIP experience while enjoying the world’s top bull riding circuit. These tickets offer premium seats, a question and answer presentation with some of the top bull riders and stock contractors in the world, behind-the-scenes look at the event from the back of the bucking chutes, and souvenir credential and lanyard.

For an enhanced PBR experience, fans can now purchase add-on PBR Premium Experiences which will include the Elite Experience on both Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29, and Bull Housing Tour on Saturday, August 28 in Fort Worth.

Positioned in the second half of the 2021 season, the PBR Fort Worth Invitational is crucial in the championship race to the PBR World Finals in early November, awarding a gold buckle and million-dollar bonus to the world’s best bull rider.

This season’s current top three riders – 2018 PBR World Champion Pacheco, 2020 World Champion Leme and 2016 World Champion Davis (a Jasper, Texas native) – are all attempting to become just the seventh rider in league history to have won the coveted gold buckle in multiple seasons.

The draw for the Fort Worth event is also anticipated to be led by Texas’ own Cody Teel (College Station, Texas), Chase Dougherty (Stephenville, Texas), Boudreaux Campbell (Crockett, Texas), Taylor Toves (Stephenville, Texas), Jesse Petri (Palestine, Texas), Ezekiel Mitchell (Rockdale, Texas) and Mason Taylor (Maypearl, Texas).
