Ahead of the inaugural season for the ground-breaking 2022 PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Team Series, the league today announced the schedule for the eight teams that will compete through the first season. The Ariat Texas Rattlers, Fort Worth’s first-ever professional bull riding team, will debut inside Dickies Arena on Oct. 7-9.
Presale tickets will be available to the Dickies Arena mailing list on Friday, March 18 from 10a-10p. To join the mailing list, please visit www.DickiesArena.com/mailing-list. General on sale begins Monday, March 21 at 10am local time.
The PBR Team Series builds on the existing structure of professional bull riding with the same basic rules for judging and scoring qualified 8-second bull rides. Events will be staged in a tournament-style format with all teams competing in head-to-head matchups against a different opponent each day. Each game will feature five riders per team squaring off against another team. Full team rosters will be comprised of seven riders on the core roster and three practice squad members. The team with the highest aggregate score of qualified rides among its riders will be declared the winner of each game. The event winner will be the team with the most game wins across an event, with a special bonus round designed as a tie-breaker to determine final event standings.
