National Finals Rodeo 2019 Live is set to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from December 5th to December 14th. The competition is organized by the rodeos’ major North American governing body, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (also known as PRCA). The PRCA organizes the NFR as a championship event to award international titles among 120 contestants competing within several high-difficulty rodeo events. The contestants compete in various rodeo competitions across the United States for a chance to qualify for this event. Once a part of the event, the competitors typically strive to become a PRCA World All-Around Champion.
Long before the Dallas Cowboys were winning Super Bowls in American football, real-life cowboys were competing in the “Super Bowl of Rodeo” in Dallas, Texas as early as 1959. The seven-competition tradition began there, but also saw stops in Los Angeles, California from 1962 to 1964, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma from 1965 to 1984, and finally to its current location of Las Vegas since 1985. It wasn’t until 2001 that the event received its first major sponsor in the form of Wrangler, an American-based jean manufacturer that specializes in jeans fit for rodeo use.
Rodeo fans are eagerly waiting to see the event live. The National Finals Rodeo is not the only showcase of the best cowboys but also showcase of patience, bravery and spurs.
