Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, StubHub partner for ticket purchases

Fans seeking to buy or sell Wrangler National Finals Rodeo tickets now have an official website to accomplish their transactions.

Las Vegas Events announced today that it has entered into an exclusive partnership with StubHub as the official secondary and fan-to-fan site of the Wrangler NFR, the annual culminating event of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, that is held each December at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

The agreement runs for three years through the 2021 rodeo.

“The demand for the Wrangler NFR ticket has never been greater,” said LVE President Pat Christenson. “For more than 32 years, this rodeo has attracted sold-out crowds to the Thomas & Mack Center. The partnership with StubHub will allow our season ticket holders to sell their tickets through a safe and secure online marketplace, while also providing rodeo fans looking to purchase with a full-service outlet backed by award-winning customer care.”

As the leader in the ticket marketplace, StubHub offers a safe and secure option for listing and re-selling tickets, as well as a vast global network of potential buyers from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Mexico, Spain, Japan and more. In an increasingly digital world, StubHub gives fans access to the events to make memories they can only create in real life.

“StubHub is all about connecting fans to the live experiences that they love,” said Brian O’Malley, head of sports partnerships and business development at StubHub. “We’re thrilled to partner with Las Vegas Events to provide rodeo fans with a secure, seamless ticket buying and selling experience.”

$10M purse
