PBR – Pre-Event Destination
January 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Make Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse your pre-event destination before heading over to the Chesapeake Energy Arena to see the Professional Bull Riders.
The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) will buck back into Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, in 2017 as the Chesapeake Energy Arena welcomes the elite Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) Express Employment Professionals Invitational for the 18th consecutive year.
With an impressive influx of young talent taking on determined veteran riders, the PBR is currently enjoying one of the tightest championship race in its history. Viewership of the PBR on CBS is up +20% this season at the summer break, according to Nielsen, and the sport has set 10 local attendance records.
Going up against the rankest bulls in the business, the Top 35 bull riders in the world will vie for their piece of the $140,000 payout in Oklahoma City. The toughest athletes in sports will face opponents 10 times their size through two days of action-packed 8-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks.
