2021 NFR Tickets
The NFR is back in Vegas! The 2021 National Finals Rodeo will return to their home in Las Vegas, Nevada. After a one year move to Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas the '21 edition will be back at the Thomas & Mack Center just off the Strip in Vegas. The ten night rodeo extravaganza will kick off on Thursday, December 2nd, 2021. The last night of the 2021 National Finals Rodeo is Saturday, December 11th, 2021.
Demand for tickets this year is already quite strong as the National Finals Rodeo returns to Las Vegas. The rodeo is a huge event, but having back on the "special dirt" in Vegas means all of the other events like Cowboy Christmas will likely be happening in 2021. Vegas has a history with the NFR and there will be plenty of action happening throughout the 10 days of the finals. If you cannot yet find the tickets you want, then please request seats.
The National Finals Rodeo
The NFR is the "Super Bowl of Rodeo" because it is the most prestigious rodeo in the world. It started in 1958 by the PRCA, who invite the top fifteen money-earners from the season to Vegas to compete. The cowboys are put through 10 rounds of competition over 10 days, with the top eight earning a portion of the richest rodeo purse of over $6 million dollars. The overall winners also receive the legendary National Finals Rodeo champion gold belt buckle. It takes place each December on the campus of UNLV in Las Vegas, Nevada, which has been the host city for the event since 1985.
There are 7 events and 10 championship, which include the following:
- Barrel Racing
- Bronc Riding
- Bull Riding
- Steer Riding
- Steer Roping
- Steer Wrestling
- Team Roping
- Tie-Down Roping
