The sport’s premier expansion tour will bring to Cedar Park the world’s top bull riders matching up top bovine athletes. Man will take on beast in a battle for supremacy as the 45-man roster of riders search for the 8 second whistle. The opening event of the season features an early opportunity for points towards the 2021 PWVT Championship and the $35,000 bonus that goes with it.

Tickets start at $18 for purchase online at PBR.com/Tickets, Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-732-1727. In conjunction with PBR’s industry leading protocols to ensure fan, competitor and staff safety, tickets will be sold in PODs, minimizing crossover and interaction between fan groups. PODs are available in groups from 2-6 seats.

For an enhanced PBR experience, fans can now purchase PBR Elite Seats and Premium Experiences, which provide a behind-the-chutes look into the toughest sport on dirt.

The 2021 PWVT season consists of more than 20 stops, bringing the toughest sport on dirt to cities such as Greenville, South Carolina; Memphis, Tennessee; and Reno, Nevada, and will culminate at the 2021 PWVT Finals in Las Vegas. While in the Entertainment Capital of the World, the 2021 PWVT champion will don the cherished gold buckle, and receive an automatic bid to the 2021 PBR World Finals. Former PWVT champions include some of the top riders on the globe today, such as Chase Outlaw (2016), Jose Vitor Leme (2019) and most recently Mason Taylor (2020).

Throughout the 2021 season, PBR will continue to commit to providing a safe environment for fans, athletes, employees, and crew by working with its venue partners to implement industry-leading protocols for live events while following health guidance from local and state officials.
