PBR Team Series to Hold 2022 Playoffs and Championship at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (November 6, 2021) – PBR (Professional Bull Riders) today announced that the PBR Team Series, a new league launching in June 2022, will hold its playoffs and championship in Las Vegas, a city that has been instrumental to the sport’s growth and success.
The inaugural PBR Team Series Championship will be held at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on Nov. 4-6, 2022.
The PBR Team Series, under terms of the multi-year deal, will run from June to November leading to the Championship in Las Vegas, complementing the newly restructured January-to-May Unleash The Beast individual-competition season, which, after 28 years of crowning the world’s top bull rider in Las Vegas (with one exception of a 2020 Texas championship event during the height of COVID-19) will be moving to Fort Worth, Texas.
The new teams and their respective ownership and home city selections will be announced in early 2022.
“As we made the most revolutionary changes in our sport’s history with the PBR Team Series, we were hopeful that Las Vegas, which has been home to PBR World Finals for nearly three decades, would be the place where we would crown our champion teams,” said Sean Gleason, CEO and Commissioner, PBR. “After so many memorable years of deciding our individual championship in Las Vegas, we are very proud that the city will remain home to an exciting PBR championship weekend.”
