WNFR returns to las vegas for 10 more years!
Following unanimous votes by the Las Vegas Events Board of Trustees and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Board of Directors, both organizations jointly announced today that they have reached an agreement to keep the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas through 2024. The new agreement will begin following the 2014 Wrangler NFR.
"This is truly a historic day for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the sport of professional rodeo," said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. " The PRCA Board of Directors and this administration has been through a long and at times painful process of due diligence and careful consideration in looking out for the very best interest of every member of this association and this great sport. It hasn't always been easy, but what we're announcing today makes it all worthwhile. We could not be happier, and look forward to working with our partners in Las Vegas on continued growth and prosperity for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association."
