PBR World Finals 2023 Gets Set to Unleash the Beast

The PBR World Finals 2023 is set and ready to unleash the beast in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Dickies Arena from May 12th to the 21st, and you don’t want to miss it! Last year started a new era for this event by moving it to spring and Texas, and the legacy continues. This is the 30th season of the PBR competitions, and it wraps up shortly after six and a half months of competition. This is the event where the best of the best compete against each other. The competitors have put their sweat, blood, and tears into this year’s events, but only one will emerge as the PBR World Bull Riding Champion.Β

The PBR World Finals has a storied history with many pages waiting to be written. Making its start in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1994, where it was hosted for 25 years. From there, it moved to Texas during the pandemic and then back to Las Vegas. Now it’s back in Texas to bring the thrill of the 8-second ride to everyone.Β
