Professional Bull Riders Coming to Tucson Convention Center

For the final regular season event of its 2016 Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) season, the Professional Bull Riders (PBR), will visit the Tucson Arena Oct. 22-23 for the Cooper Tires Take the Money and Ride.

The PBR’s top 35 bull riding stars will compete to win a share of the $140,000 event purse and gain valuable points needed to move up in the ranks to become the 2016 PBR World Champion. The 2016 PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals will be held two weeks later in Las Vegas. The bull rider who earns the most points during the season will be crowned and receive $1 million and a $10,000 championship belt buckle.

The BFTS is televised every week on CBS, CBS Sports Network, and various networks around the world. This season, the PBR on CBS has seen a 20 percent increase in viewership over the same events in 2015, according to Nielsen.

Tickets for the TCC competition are available at Ticketmaster.
