The Professional Bull Riders organization and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority have agreed to extend their partnership to stage two annual events in Las Vegas for another three years through 2018.
The two events will include the $2.3 million PBR World Finals, which is being held this week at The Thomas & Mack Center and will move to the new MGM Resorts International-Anschutz Entertainment Group arena starting in the fall of 2016.
The other PBR event in Las Vegas will be the Last Cowboy Standing competition, which was staged at MGM Resorts’ outdoor village festival site across from the Luxor on the Strip in the spring.
The bull riders are in Las Vegas this week from Wednesday to Sunday. It’s the 22nd straight year that the world’s top bull riders and bucking bulls have come to Las Vegas for the championship event.
